Trivia

Although the previous film was modestly successful, it still underperformed below expectations (grossing only $70 million to a $20 million budget). This, along with Takashi Shimizu and Takako Fuji ultimately not returning for this film, lead to Sony reducing the budget of this film to $5 million, a shooting location of Bulgaria, and a straight-to-video release.

Goofs

(at around 51 mins) As Naoko and Lisa are speaking in the park (right after Rose goes off to the swings), Naoko tucks her hair behind her left ear. In the next shot, her hair is back in front of her ear. See more »

kill this movie
23 September 2009 | by kairinglerSee all my reviews

don't know what i wanna attack first,, this one was so well off,, from the first two. you didn't have the fear of what lies beyond,, not knowing what is in front of you like the first two. the kills were too stylized, should have never set it in chicago.. the couple always wanted to have sex in the apartment building ruined it for me,, just another campy American horror movie. i dind't really care for the characters that much,, this film just really did not sit well with me at all,, i mean the storyline wasn't bad,, i just think that somewhere along the line things just went horribly wrong,, i think that i really wouldn't recommend this one if you like the first two.
