(at around 1h 8 mins) 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 »

"The Grudge 2" has scary sound and visual effects, with the creepy woman and boy, and I have startled a couple of times while watching this movie. However, the complex screenplay with three subplots is totally confused, making the entwined story a complete mess. There are too much characters and situations, and in a certain moment I was completely lost with the disconnected and fragmented narrative. In the end, I was completely disappointed with this confused, but also spooky film. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "O Grito 2" ("The Scream 2")
