As the previews show, Sarah Michelle Gellar returns along with a whole new cast including Amber Tamblyn who plays her sister. The movie starts out a little slow but eventually gets back into 1st gear and continues right back to that darn creepy house. I was entertained. Scares were effective, the music was good, the story was interesting. The acting was great. There are a lot of scary moments but they're fewer than in the first one because here we are more focus on the story line. which is great. I was never bored. Different than the first one; a very good ending. Very creepy. After the movie you feel strange like after the first one. The visuals were just awesome. This movie is suspenseful, scary, and thrilling ! I Loved it ! The movie is about an hour and a half long and goes by pretty smooth after the first 15 minutes. If you were a fan of the 1st Grudge, go see this one and you won't be disappointed. Its full of twists and turns and leaves room for another sequel. I would recommend this movie to all and hope everyone goes to see it!
