Trivia

The first film omitted the subplot involving the three schoolgirls which was present in the original Ju-on: The Grudge (2002). The subplot was resurrected for this film (Misako Uno's character is even named Miyuki, just like one of the girls in the original film). See more »

Goofs

(at around 14 mins) Right before Audrey walks into the house, there's a table lined with pictures and as the camera is passing by you can get a quick second-long glimpse of the camera as it passes. See more »

Quotes

Bill: [while Trish is frying bacon] You're gonna burn them... You gonna go shopping for three hours again today? Leave your cellphone off? You think I don't know what you're doing? You think I'm stupid, eh? Yet you can't make me a simple... damn breakfast.

Crazy Credits

The Columbia Pictures title lady changed into Kayako Saeki with the torch light she was holding flickered on and off, also while flickering instead of saying Columbia it said Grudge 2. See more »

The Grudge is Back...
13 October 2006 | by sour_starburst_413See all my reviews

I'm one of those people who was looking forward to this movie for a while. I thought the first one was decent, and very scary at the same time. However, I also feared that because the new Grudge 2 trailer seemed to give so many scares away, that it would take the thrill out of the movie. I was wrong.

Now, I don't want to get your hopes up and have you think "Oh, a sequel to a horror that's actually good!", because the object of going into a movie is to not have your hopes so high, because they usually come crashing down on you. I had read some bad reviews before hand, so I thought this would be a typical bad horror sequel like The Ring Two. It's not that bad.

This movie has a variety of scary/suspenseful moments, and let me tell you, my heart was pumping a LOT throughout the movie. Sometimes the scares satisfied, sometimes they didn't. But there are so many, it really didn't matter to me.

Now, if you liked the first Grudge, I pretty much fully recommend this one. If you did not like the first movie, then stay away. It stays in the same vein as the first one a lot. Overall, it was a satisfying movie. It wasn't too bad, but it wasn't a masterpiece either. Just enjoy yourselves. :)

(And don't let the first few minutes fool you, the movie gets better than that.)
