Three interwoven stories about a terrible curse. A young woman encounters a malevolent supernatural force while searching for her missing sister in Tokyo; a mean high school prank goes horribly wrong; a woman with a deadly secret moves into a Chicago apartment building.
In Pasadena, Mrs. Davis sends her daughter Aubrey Davis to Tokyo to bring her sister Karen Davis, who is interned in a hospital after surviving a fire, back to the USA. After their meeting, Karen dies and Aubrey decides to investigate what happened to her and gets herself trapped in the same situation, being chased by the ghost of the house. Meanwhile in Tokyo, the three high school mates Allison, Vanessa and Miyuki visit the famous haunted house and are also chased by the ghost. In Chicago, Trish moves to the apartment of her boyfriend Bill, who lives with his children, the teenager Lacey and boy Jake. On the next door, weird things happen with their neighbor. Written by

Director Takashi Shimizu went to Los Angeles to meet with producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi in a small office at Columbia Pictures. The purpose was to develop a story outline for the sequel's first draft, which also involved employees from Tapert and Raimi's production company Ghost House Pictures, producer Taka Ichise, and writer Stephen Susco. According to Tapert, the session was roughly seven or eight hours of people suggesting ideas for the story. See more »
When reading the diary, the characters read the book left to right, like a book written in English. Japanese, when written in tategaki format (top to bottom) or yokogaki (left to right), still is opened and paged right to left. However, the characters correctly read the printed book in the same scene. See more »

This movie was BORING! there was nothing new that the audience learned. It is great if you like to jump while watching a horror movie. I will say that it made me jump a bit 3 times. The story was awful the acting sucked! I was interested in these movies because of Sara Michelle Gellar I am a huge Buffy fan but to see her in this film was awful. i was hoping that she would kick some butt, that did not happen. It was just bad! This is just my opinion, see it for yourself. Although I believe that you will come to the same conclusion as I did. Again BORING and there is nothing to the story. Well at least it was a night out with friends you could look at it that way and also some yummy popcorn and chocolate. Let us know what you thought Later everyone.
