Nakata uses reflections in mirrors and other objects to create suspense. Likewise, Director M. Night Shyamalan employs reflected images to build tension in his film Signs. Relying on imagination instead of gore, Director Alejandro AmenĂ¡bar constructs a ghostly thriller set in post-World War II in The Others.

Home Video Extra Features

DVD Release Date: August 23, 2005
The Ring Two comes to DVD in two choices, depending on whether you just want to get your feet wet or take the plunge. They are, the Rated Version (a.k.a.—the theatrical release), or the Unrated Version (a directors cut providing more chills). Both editions include deleted scenes, but the other bonus materials differ.

The Rated Version offers Faces of Fear: The Cast (a featurette discussing the sequel’s returning stars and new faces) and HBO First Look (an in-depth introduction to the cast and crew).

The Unrated Version features Rings (an short film looking at the connection between The Ring and The Ring Two), Fear on Film: Special Effects (a behind-the-scenes peek at the special effects and the team that created them) and The Power of Symbols (an exploration of the symbolic imagery used in the move).

Both releases are recorded in Dolby and provide closed-captioning.
