Just when Joey looks forward to a brand new life after a failed suicide attempt, she discovers that she is pregnant. Confused and desperate, the un-wedded woman tries to contact the father of her child but only gets hurt by his evasive response. Being tortured by the thought of an abortion, Joey finds herself becoming delusional and emotionally unstable. she is frequently threatened by the sudden presence of strangers, and also feels stalked by a mysterious woman. Joey suspects herself suffering from pre-partum depression. But her problems do not stem from her psyche; her former suicide attempt has actually granted her the ability to see the dead. The revelation strikes mercilessly when Joey pays a visit to the hospital and gets trapped in an elevator with a woman in labor and witnesses the most petrifying stillbirth caused by a ghost.... What is more devastating is that the mysterious woman stalker is indeed a spirit awaiting to be reincarnated in the form of Joey's child! If Karma is the explanation, what good or evil could Joey have done to this unknown woman? Or...has she? Joey is determined to unveil the identify of the mysterious woman, but every truth comes with a cost... and this one in particular is not what Joey can afford.

Professional Review of "The Eye 2 (DTS Version) (Alternate Endings Version)"
In 2002, The Eye won the Pang Brothers widespread acclaim and the leading lady Angelica Lee the Best Actress Award at the Hong Kong Film Awards. The movie's huge success is attributed to the amazing cast and the innovative filming. Sharing the reputation earned in the first movie, "The Eye 2" also came out as a blockbuster in 2004.
The Eye 2 is a thriller about relationships. This is, however, not what a successful horror movie should count on. The key of this particular genre lies on the ignorance of human beings towards ghosts. It is such a mystery and the revelation of it that bring unbelievable pleasures and heart-shaking sensation to audiences. The Eye 2 is comparatively less shocking. There are merely a few scenes specially choreographed to take your breath away. A certain distance that keeps the human world and the occult world away is also essential for a good thriller. Joey, the protagonist in The Eye 2, puts on a face-to-face confrontation against the movie's ghost at first but also shows mercy on this supposedly scary creature at the end of the movie. Such a from-foes-to-friends development has turned a thriller about the battle between good and the evil into a proportionate melodrama. It is such a half-thriller-half-drama feature that leaves a big hole in this movie.
The images of ghosts and the horror scenes in this movie are also far too artificial. Based on all those common ghost tales, The Eye 2 uses a lot of computerized special effects to re-create a range of concrete images for the ghosts. Such images are not impressive enough though. Some of them are too vividly shown to the audience while some appear to be simply a blur. There are some representations of them in this movie that may not be convincing enough. For example, it would have been heart-shaking to see Joey the pregnant woman being accompanied by a floating ghost. But once the image becomes clearer, what we can see is just someone who lacks facial expressions hanging around her. There are some more look-alikes in the movie which give you no creeps but simply a plain face looking idle. Sometimes their looks even seem amusing, which is definitely not a healthy sight in a horror movie.
There are still some scenes that can earn a few credits in this movie. For instance, there is a chilling scene where Joey witnesses a mother and her son jump off a building and end their lives. The editing and the sound effect are operated in coordination making it one of the best shots in this movie. However, it repeats the same mistake as mentioned above when it comes to the images of the two ghosts. It is far too abnormal and even hilarious for us to see a pair of badly mutilated bodies still talking with their eyes wide open while lying in a pool of blood. But there is another scene that may be able to compensate for such a loss. It is when Joey is in the changing room together with Mrs. Chow and a man with a birthmark. While Mrs. Chow thinks there are only two women there, Joey lets us see that there is one more uninvited guest around. We the audience know he is already dead and we see his face. But we still have no idea how he is related to Mrs. Chow and this leaves a hook for us. Such a natural way of bringing out the ghosts is actually the key of success in the series of The Eye.
It is pleasing to see that Shu Qi has successfully shaken off her sex symbol image in this movie. Without her trademark inaccurate Cantonese and her seductive body, she plays well the role of a pregnant woman suffering from extreme pains and desperation. It is also refreshing to see how committed she plays the haunted and manic character.

|This was a good horror movie. It was much better than the first. The first movie was slow paced and boring. The shocking moment of the first movie was silly and i was able to perdict it. In this movie i dont think the plot was the best horror plot ive ever seen but it was interesting. Shu Qi was a great choice in this movie. Unlike the actress in the first movie, Shu Qi was not so wooden. I was shocked that the actress in the first won a award because it made melaugh how fake her crying was in the first eye. But i did feel Shu Qi's characters pain in this movie and that is the entire reason im giving this movie a 5 star: because of character development. also this movie is much more scary than the first. In the first 'eye' i was not scared one time. It was all perdictable scares. In this movie i actually got scared because there were times that what i thought was oging to happen didnt happen, something else happened instead and that added a fun factor to this movie. I would say that although not the best horror movie, this one is much better than the first.|

|The story is pretty silly, and those "scary" aren't scary. The ghosts are all look like human faces and you will laugh at the so-called "Special Effects". Pang brothers are overrated.|
