Low calorie horror, it's propped up by set-piece shocks familiar from any of the other five incarnations of Ju-On: The Grudge.
October 21, 2006
Please let's pull the plug on this insanely over-promoted, over-rated horror brand.

Some unsettling moments here, but the evil ghost itself is a predictable one-trick pony.
October 19, 2006
Vapid, silly and about as scary as an Adam Sandler film.
October 18, 2006
What's a bad sequel but a revenant soul doomed to repeat itself?
October 17, 2006
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.
October 16, 2006
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.

Takako Fuji and Ohga Tanaka, as the ghosts, do MTV Movie Award-caliber work by just crouching in a phone booth.
October 16, 2006
It isn't a bad movie, just a redundant one.

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.

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?
October 16, 2006
The movie is utter junk, suitable perhaps for late-night TV, but not for the thousands of big screens on which it opened yesterday.
October 16, 2006
Grudge 2 is such a complete rehash of its predecessor that it's likely that those who haven't seen the original (American or Japanese versions) will enjoy the sequel more than those who have.
October 16, 2006
It basically repeats the events of the first film with some roles reversed and perversions intensified. For all its visual audacity, The Grudge 2 is quite predictable in its pattern of behavior.
October 16, 2006
Even my pathological love of Japan and its beauties, glories and eccentricities is sorely tested by The Grudge 2, from Takashi Shimizu, a movie so bewildering and impenetrable that I believe it siphoned off a good 40 IQ points.
October 16, 2006
This particular Grudge proves too pointless to bear.
October 14, 2006
The film feels more like several small, disconnected pieces thrown together rather than a satisfying whole.
October 13, 2006
The Grudge 2 is just a mélange of images, some mildly disturbing, but mostly just variations on a theme: an unblinking eye, a spectral presence lurking in a dark corner, a sexy schoolgirl in uniform.
October 13, 2006
Story is incidental, as auds merely anticipate the scares.
