Takashi Shimizu absence as director and Takako Fuji as the Kayoko are enough to make someone believe that this movie is not considered as a grudge anymore !! The story is not completely sucks as we see Kayoko sister this time Naoko (Emi Ikehata) who tries to prevent her sister from hurting people and stop the curse once and for all. In this effort she encounter a family that has the bad luck to live in the same building as Jake in second movie and the story starts !! Although this movie lacking of directing as the time-line mash-up has stopped, the scares are predictable and not in the slightest frightening and the most important the whole chilling atmosphere of the previous movies has disappeared !! Also Toshio seems too old in this sequel like a teenager and this also decreases the creepy factor. Furthermore the acting is average except Shawnee Smith as Dr. Sullivan, who makes a great performance. To sum up this movie is fun to watch if you don't expect very much from it but if you are a grudge-horror-fan it will be wise to skip it !!
