The Grudge 2


--Reviewed by Lindy Loo


Plotline: The sister of the heroine from the original movie is sent to Japan to bring back said heroine. Shortly after her arrival, the original heroine plummets to her death from a hospital roof. Her sister, wracked with grief, decides to get to the bottom of things and figure out why her sister's life ended this way. In the meantime, a group of girls who venture into "Japan's most haunted house" brings the curse upon themselves and begin to vanish one by one.

Scariness factor: It's spooky and will make you jump in your seat once in a while.

Gross-Out Factor: Not so gross. Mostly just seeks to spook you out.



Complaints: This is basically the same plot as the first one, with different characters. Dullsville. I'm not a big fan of the first one either, unfortunately. They're too slick and commercial. And, though they have their moments, they're not all that awesome in the scariness department.

High Points: It will creep you out once or twice. And I actually enjoyed it more than the original movie. Maybe I was just in a better mood upon seeing it or something, but I found it to be spookier and more entertaining.



Overall: Not a fan of The Grudge series. So I'd say it's no big loss if you never catch them.

Grade: C

I didn't really care about The Grudge either. After my husband showed it to me, I followed him around for a few days imitating that sound that the ghost (or whatever) girl makes. I've never bothered to see the second one.

I personally think the first one is better then the second one. The second one is so confusing and really hard to follow.

I thought the first one was creepy the first time I saw it. It needs to be more scary!!!
