In Tokyo, a young woman (Tamblyn) is exposed to the same mysterious curse that afflicted her sister (Gellar). The supernatural force, which fills a person with rage before spreading to its next victim, brings together a group of previously unrelated people who attempt to unlock its secret to save their lives.
Anna Rydell returns home to her sister (and best friend) Alex after a stint in a mental hospital, though her recovery is jeopardized thanks to her cruel stepmother, aloof father, and the presence of a ghost in their home.
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 Aubrey goes into the dark room and picks up the picture, the picture should be black. It was in the developer last. It would have had to go into the stop bath to stop developing, and then the fixer to not go black when it was exposed to real light. See more »
They say it is one of the most haunted houses in all of Japan.
Yeah, and that anyone who enters gets the curse.

The Columbia Pictures title lady changed into Kayako Saeki with the torch light she was holding flickered on and off. See more »
This surely has to be lined up for an award....as the greatest Turkey of 2006. Three different story lines running together, but very disconnected from each other; Terrible acting from all concerned; a very readable 'plot' (and I use that term in it's loosest sense) and negligible moments of scariness! Was this re-hash supposed to be scary? Psychological even? Well, it certainly had me breaking out in laughter in several places, but I don't think that was the intention.
Certainly a film to see if you want to sit around with your friends discussing the 'worst movie you've seen' this year. If not, then save your money. I wish I had!
