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

On the "Columbia" logo screen before the feature, the standard logo appears normal for a moment, then the hair grows and the Columbia statuette turns to Kayako as the word "Columbia" changes to "Grudge 2". The screen flashes for a moment as this happens. 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 »

You're gonna burn 'em.
You gonna go shopping for three hours again today? Leave your cell phone off? You think I don't know what you're doing, you think I'm stupid, huh? And yet... you can't make me a simple... DAMN... breakfast!
[Trish then pours the hot oil from the frying pan over Bill's head and whacks him to the floor with the pan]

The Columbia Pictures title lady changed into Kayako Saeki with the torch light she was holding flickered on and off. See more »
I just saw this movie and i have to say the movie was great, what was wrong, i know the movie began a bit "dumb" but it got btter and scarier.
First it begins with some bad acting like Christopher Cousins, when he was arguing with Jennifer Beals and where Jake went to Arielle Kebbel Room, And Edison Chen's.
But then every part was drop dead creepy, frighting, and makes you jump out of your seat. Amber Tamblyn and Sarah Gellar did a great job, also Kayko's mother. forget The gory films with cheap frights. The movie suspense, and they might not have lot of visuals effects, but Takashi Shimizu knew how to scare us. this is not The Ring ripoff it much much better, except for the long hair. but it's maybe Japanese culture. any way the movie was awesome.
