Seems that nasty dead girl Samara is back and wreaking more supernatural havoc via her haunted videotape. Naturally, stressed-out single mom Naomi Watts is caught in the middle once again. As before, the direction is quite atmospheric. The script doesn't do anything wrong, but it can't quite figure out what to do right. A flurry of supernatural activity and a couple minor revelations about Samara's past only ends up blunting some of the original's subtle spookiness.111 minutes R.
