Rachel Keller (Creator/NaomiWatts) has moved with her son Aidan to a new place, where she tries to leave the horrors of previous film behind. However, Samara's curse returns to haunt them as people keep dying around the town.

!!This film has examples of:

* AntiVillain: Samara. Sure, she killed a bunch of people, but she just wanted to be loved.
* AssholeVictim: Dr. Emma Temple. True what happens might be a bit harsh, but she is easily the least sympathetic victim in the American films.
* HalfHumanHybrid: [[spoiler: Samara's father is revealed to be an ocean entity (and her mother a human)]].
* IronicEcho: One of the most striking images in the Tape in the previous film is Anna, Samara's adoptive mother, throwing herself off a cliff. [[spoiler:Rachel escapes Samara's dreamworld by doing the same thing, in the same pose, from the same cliff]].
* MirrorScare: Aidan looks at the photographs he took of himself and sees Samara in the mirror coming closer and closer….
* NumberedSequels
* {{Retcon}}: In the first film, Samara's birth certificate is briefly shown and the Morgans are named as her parents. In addition, there is a glimpse of another document which reveals a little information about her parents where especially the description of mother matches that of Anna quite well. This means that despite what the parents said, Samara wasn't actually adopted but instead conceived by unorthodox means. In this film, however, the information in these papers was disregarded, and another characters were introduced as Samara's biological parents, making her the adoptive child of the Morgans.
* ScreamerTrailer: Although the trailers for ''The Ring'' were standard fare, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkWhFa6LCTU teaser trailer]] for ''The Ring Two'' is basically a full-fledged [[ScreamerPrank Screamer]].
* SequelNumberSnarl: This film is actually the third installment in the American ''Ring'' series, the second one being the short film ''Rings''.
* SmugSnake: Dr. Emma Temple, a cold and smugly superior psychiatrist played by Elizabeth Perkins, who brings an energy to the character that makes it truly easy to hate her. [[spoiler:Her death definitely confirms her SmugSnake status. She succumbs instantly to a JediMindTrick to [[PsychicAssistedSuicide commit suicide]] implying she is so WeakWilled Samara can just control her directly rather than rely on MindRape like all her other victims]].
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: Jake from the short film ''Rings'' dies in the opening scene after he fails pass the curse on his girlfriend.
* UrbanLegends: The deadly tape has earned this status. The first victim in ''The Ring Two'' was a guy who joined one of several groups that [[spoiler:dare people to watch the video then get someone else to watch it within seven days]]. Conveniently enough, these groups are called "Rings".
* YankTheDogsChain: Samara ends up suffering from this. She [[spoiler: possesses Aidan]] to get a mother, only to be [[spoiler: drugged by Rachel, exorcised from Aidan's body, and then re-sealed in the well.]]
* YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious: Rachel's son Aidan insists on calling his mother [[CallingParentsByTheirName by her first name]]. So when [[spoiler:Samara [[DemonicPossession takes over Aidan's body]] and subsequently [[OutOfCharacterAlert starts calling her "mom",]]]] she realizes something's up.
