Eventually, the woman takes the child to the home of the dead girl and tries to resolve the situation. When they get there, they are visited by the vision of the evil girl's mother and the girl herself. On the plus side, this recreates scenes from the video. On the negative side, it's completely weird and random. The scientist from earlier arrives as well and sets up an experiment to use the boy as a channeling stone. He needs a bigger source to conduct the energy into: an industrial-sized swimming pool. The kid is hooked up to a machine right out of The Exorcist 2 and the woman is there to cause an emotional reaction in him. Somehow, channeling the spirit of an evil killer turns out badly for the scientist (he is hypnotized into walking into the pool), the nurse (she falls in after the machines do) and the real father of the evil girl (he drowns himself). Our hero and the boy wake up in the well...or a vision of it and are visited by the teacher. You've got to earn your needlessly-padded out part, mister! After an odd monologue, he makes a rope appear for them to climb out with, but the evil girl shows up as well. Since the kid is dead weight, the lady climbs slower than a stone and the girl catches up to them...only to do nothing and drop back in. The kid and lady wake up at the pool full of dead bodies and go home. The End?
I won't lie- this movie is weird. The whole thing is about continuing the idea of the tape, but they pretty much ignore the actual tape. It morphs into the tale of a child channeling the spirit of a girl who was dumped in a well. Oh yeah, fun fact: they say in the intro that the woman survived in the well for 30 years! Yeah, that makes sense...NO, IT DOESN'T! Aside from that bit of ridiculousness, the movie is decent and features more weird, craziness than Ringu does. For all the hype that Ringu has, it's mostly a mystery film designed to set-up to one crazy scene. It's sort of like being an Argento fan after Suspiria and Opera & seeing his early films. To like the film, you have to be able to deal with the disparities between this movie and Rasen. Both films share 90% of the same cast playing the same characters. Can you imagine if there was another Exorcist sequel that turned Pazuzu into a creature that just gave you a version of Smallpox & you had to just pretend it didn't exist? This whole thing is confusing and this doesn't help the movie series as a whole. That said, this is a superior film in most ways to Rasen and extends the mythos in a decent way.
