Six months after the terrifying events of the first film, Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) has taken her son Aidan (David Dorfman) to the peaceful mountain resort of Astoria, where she takes a job on a local newspaper. When she discovers a case of a teenage murder victim, Rachel begins to suspect that the sinister videotape is responsible. Tracking down the tape, Rachel is quick to destroy it. But when her son slips into a coma, Rachel comes to believe that this might be the actions of the vengeful ghost, although for the local community it is beginning to look as if Rachel has been abusing her child. Returning to Seattle, Rachel begins a desperate race against time to uncover the secrets of the ghost's past, before it can use her son to cross over into this reality.
