Critic Reviews

Consensus: A diminished sequel that makes even less sense than The Grudge 1.
  • Some unsettling moments here, but the evil ghost itself is a predictable one-trick pony. More...
  • Vapid, silly and about as scary as an Adam Sandler film. More...
  • What's a bad sequel but a revenant soul doomed to repeat itself? More...
  • Like its progenitor, The Grudge 2 is filled with defective light bulbs, scummy bath water and camera work that makes even teenage flesh look mottled. More...
  • It is a testament to the power of filmmaking that even a waste of time like Grudge 2 can raise a slew of interesting questions to keep you thinking for a long time after leaving the theatre. More...
  • Takako Fuji and Ohga Tanaka, as the ghosts, do MTV Movie Award-caliber work by just crouching in a phone booth. More...
  • It isn't a bad movie, just a redundant one. More...
  • The Grudge 2, Takashi Shimizu's wildly uneven but ambitious new film -- his second American remake -- is one of the best entries in the Japanese director's Ju-On/Grudge series. More...
  • Very little about the plot actually makes sense, but who needs logic when you've got a creepy ghost child and his banshee mom lurking around? More...
  • The movie is utter junk, suitable perhaps for late-night TV, but not for the thousands of big screens on which it opened yesterday. More...

  • I thought this sequel horror film is more creepy and spooky where the cursed spirit Kayako has been released to a new country. But I like the first...
  • I couldn't sleep at night for a month! This was so freaking scary. I suggest you to watch at daytime. Even though one of my friend thought it was lame...
  • Very boring Movie. The Prequel was not better either.
  • What is it about a pale looking Japanese woman that?s so damn scary? This is a much better film than the first (The remake). Without wasting too much...
  • There are one or two genuinely freaky moments in The Grudge 2. They almost boarder on scary. Unfortunately, they are ruined by a few terrible actors...
  • The second US version of the Grudge films doesn't do anything different than the first except splitting the plot into three branches, of which the...
  • whether i saw this or not i know without a doubt its just as dumb as the first.... and from the cover i see that the super-scary meowing kid is back!
