Of course the reason I may like this one is all the girls in the locker room shower scene, but hey that is a reason to like a movie. No seriously I thought it was okay. Though absolutely nothing you have not seen before...just think the first Grudge only with a bizarre Chicago family storyline that comes together at the end. Not that it wasn't thoroughly predictable. Okay, sounds like I didn't care for this movie much, but I found it a fun way to pass time. It wasn't boring as it had a kill every so often to keep the story going. The story you ask? Well there really isn't much of one, I hated it when they tried to add a reason behind the haunting, I thought that just cheapened the whole affair and I was glad to see it was short lived. The ending was nothing new and about the same, like I said it was not a boring movie thanks to the kills, however it was only mildly scary here and there and it just seemed to Americanized this time too. Sure all the Japanese horror remakes are a bit, but this one was more so. This one was better than the American Ring 2 as I found that one really boring, but this one is not nearly as good as its Japanese counterpart JuOn 2 as that one has a hospital scene that has to be seen to believe. Then again this one had that girl shower scene in it.
