Trivia

The role of Vanessa was originally written for Vanessa Lengies, who eventually turned it down to film Archie's Final Project (2009). The part even bore her name. See more »

Goofs

(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 »

Quotes

[first lines]
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 »

16 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Why in god's name would anyone give this a ten? ANYONE!? Seriously, a ten? So they would say this is as good as say, Casablanca? Their top three go Lawerence of Arabia, the Godfather and the Grudge 2? I mean, MAYBE someone could have liked this and not have hated themselves for wasting money on it like I did, but a 10?!?! Anyway, this movie was terrible. Its the same damn thing that has been made about 50 times in the last 5 years. Its not scary, and relies on shock value, but even in that its terrible. It uses that same lame stop action camera trick that sucked the first time it was used in The Ring. I saw it on a date and we both walked out 2/3's through. Save your money, go rent Alien. Or better yet, go see The Departed.
