    Synopsis


    The Grudge 2
    Japanese horror specialist Takashi Shimizu returns to the mythology that terrified audiences the world over with this terror-inducing sequel to the hit 2004 frightener. When a cursed Tokyo home is burned to the ground, the baneful spirit once confined within its walls is suddenly unleased to terrorize anyone and everyone who crosses its dark path. Original producers Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Taka Ichise return to help Shimizu realize his hair-raising vision with this tale that finds Karen's (Sarah Michelle Gellar) sister, Aubrey (Amber Tamblyn), teaming with spellbound journalist Eason (Edison Chen) to investigate the spectral mystery. Meanwhile, the ghostly grip of Toshio (Oga Tanaka) and Kayako (Takako Fuji) tightens on a Chicago housewife (Jennifer Beals) halfway across the globe. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A lot of potential that it doesn't live up to

      Not remotely the same as the Japanese "Ju-On: The Grudge 2", this movie picks up from the same point ("The Grudge" and "Ju-On" were almost identical anyway) but heads off in a completely different direction, with mostly different characters from "Ju-On 2" and different concepts. It's not on par, in my opinion, with "Ju-On 2" but it is a very good movie in its own right, above both the first "Grudge" and the first "Ju-On" and introducing new ideas that beg for further follow-up. The story picks up immediately after the events chronicled in The Grudge, as Aubrey Davis (Amber Tamblyn of Joan of Arcadia fame) is dispatched to Japan to bring her sister Karen (Sarah Michelle Gellar) home. Gellar turns in a memorable cameo appearance, but the Grudge mantle is quickly placed solely around the neck of Tamblyn as she tries to figure out what happened to her sister. With no one but an interested journalist (Edison Chen) to help her, she eventually succeeds in learning much more than is healthy about "the house" and the curse associated with it. At the same "time" (remember, this is "Grudge time"), you have three young girls who make the mistake of visiting the ghost house; it's basically a prank by two cool girls to scare new girl Allison (Arielle Kebbel) - scare her they do, but let's just say this prank really, really backfires. It makes for a great, really creepy opening to the film and supplies some great moments the rest of the way. Then you have yet another story arc playing out that has the creepy little Japanese boy doing double duty in a Chicago apartment building. Following the arrival of a mystery guest next door, things take a very bad turn for the family of a little boy who is just far too curious for his own good. I didn't really care for this storyline, as it just seemed to interrupt all the good creepy stuff going on in Japan, the changes in family behavior happen far too drastically, and, most importantly, it's hard to put this aspect of the plot into context until the very end. Finally, the thing that simply annoyed me was the fact that nearly everything and everyone in the movie was American. The three schoolgirls consisted of two Americans and one Japanese native who for some reason seemed to be attending a basic kanji class. Even the school counselor was American. The main character goes to a little run down village and meets an old Japanese mystic who speaks perfect English. I almost forgot that much of the story was taking place in Japan.

      If you didn't like the first one, don't bother reading this! For those of you that did like it and appreciate it, then you'll love this one. My wife and I love these movies! This one picks up right where the other one left off and the plot thickens. Most people that didn't like the first one, didn't like it because they didn't understand it. That's why I said don't bother, because you're not going to GET this one either. To a lot of people the plot to these movies are over thier heads. We as Americans are too use to simple plot slasher films, 'man chases woman with chainsaw'. Don't get me wrong, I love a good slasher film, but sometimes it's nice to have something different with a little bit more plot depth. If you didn't like the first one or didn't GET IT, then you probably won't like this one either. But, if you're a fan of the first one, I highly recommend this one! It's just as good and just as intriguing! Also, I recommend The Grudge 3, it's not as good as the first two because it's done by someone different, but it's still good.

      The Grudge 2 was so thrilling to watch. I must say that it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. When I first watched it, I was alone at night. It was the greatest experience ever. Then I got to watch it with my friends and it was so fun to watch their expressions throughout this movie. I would highly recommend this movie for those who love horror movies.

      The only purpose of this movie is to scare, nothing else about it is good. I only like these movies cause they scare the gafagfhsdhtina out of me.

      Bad sequel to a bad movie

      I thought the first one was bad. I bought this one and found out the first Grudge movie wasnt as bad as I had thought. This one is very avoidable.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
