The Eye 2 is a 2004 Hong Kong horror film directed by the Pang brothers. It is the sequel to The Eye (2002), though the two storylines are not related in any way except for clairvoyance of the protagonists and their ability to see ghosts.

Plot

Believing she is being rejected by her boyfriend Sam, Joey attempts suicide with sleeping pills, but recovers after having her stomach pumped. When she looks forward to a brand new life, she discovers that she is pregnant. Being tortured by the thought of an abortion and unable to contact Sam, Joey finds herself becoming delusional and emotionally unstable.

Joey begins to see the spirits of dead people, and also feels stalked by a mysterious ghost woman. She believes the ghost wants to hurt her unborn baby. As the story unfolds, it is discovered that the ghost is Sam’s wife who committed suicide by jumping in front of an oncoming train. She is now awaiting Joey’s baby’s birth so that she may be reincarnated within her.

After discovering this, Joey would rather kill herself and her baby than let this woman become her child. While in a hospital, awaiting the birth of her child, Joey jumps off the building, but survives, gives birth and in the end comes to terms with her situation.

Her psychiatrist’s explanation is that Joey feels guilty about Sam’s wife’s suicide. Finally she accepts this responsibility, no longer recognizing Sam and disillusioned about her baby’s father.

As Joey checks out of the hospital, the camera pans across a room of expecting mothers, each with a ghost hovering by their sides. [Wikipedia.org]
