is a sequel to the movie Ring. It is directed by Jōji Iida and is based on the novel Spiral by Kōji Suzuki.
Ring and its sequel Rasen were released in Japan at the same time. The studio hoped this would increase revenues, because the Ring story was already a successful novel and television series. The two films shared a few cast members and had the same production team, but different directors and screenwriters; Rasen was written and directed by Jōji Iida whereas Ring was written by Hiroshi Takahashi and directed by Hideo Nakata. After their release, Ring became an enormous success while Rasen floundered, quickly becoming the "forgotten sequel".
Takahashi and Nakata were later recruited to produce another sequel, Ring 2, which replaced Rasen as the sequel to Ring, not based on Suzuki's works, and thus ultimately ignores the story of Rasen.
Sadako 3D and Sadako 3D 2 are sequels to Rasen, based on Kōji Suzuki's 2012 follow-up novel S.

- Spiral (Suzuki novel), 1995 Japanese Horror Novel by Koji Suzuki
