The ghosts of Kayako and Toshio return to spread terror as the Grudge saga continues in this sequel featuring Saw star Shawnee Smith. Jake (Matthew Knight) may have survived the previous supernatural onslaught, though the sheer terror of his harrowing ordeal has rendered him nearly insane. Hospitalized, Jake is haunted by visions of his ghostly attackers as his caretaker Dr. Sullivan (Smith) sets out to investigate his incredible tales. In the midst of exploring Jake's Chicago home, Dr. Sullivan discovers that Kayako and Toshio have targeted a new family. Should Dr. Sullivan fail in convincing a mysterious Japanese woman to help in banishing the vengeful spirits, everyone involved faces a fate worse than death. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This is one of the worst horror films I've seen. The story has so many gaps, I found myself laughing and shaking my head. To make matters worse, it just wasn't scarey--not at all. Don't waste your time.
Usually the second (and certainly the third!) movie in a series tend to be so bad they're unwatchable. There are exceptions and this is one of them. Of course it's impossible to match the initial shock of the first one, but this movie had everyone here jumping and there were more than a few screams. If you're looking for a high caliber and fun Friday night movie you will be well served to pick this one up. As horror movies go, this is a cut above the crowd!
