Trivia

To keep the mood on the set light, the actors and director would often joke around and attempt to frighten one another. This included a Karaoke session performed by Shimizu, Takashi on Kebbel, Arielle's birthday. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Allison: You went inside that house.
Principal Dale: There nothing to worry about, it is just an abandoned house.

An Alright Film, But The First Is Way Better!
25 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Including two shorts, the Japanese original Ju-on, its sequel, the American remake and now its follow-up, Takashi Shimizu has directed six films about the grudge curse. Shimizu has grown fond of his ghosts and in The Grudge 2, this fondness is apparent. He puts them everywhere - in cupboards, under covers, behind mirrors, under desks and rather inexplicably, lurking within the hoods of sweaters. It was a good, pretty scary movie, but the first like i said was way scarier and better! I would watch the first one five times then watch this again, like it was OK, but i wouldn't buy it, maybe give it a chance and rent it!
