Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Some unsettling moments here, but the evil ghost itself is a predictable one-trick pony."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"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."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Takashi Shimizu telegraphs scares to the point of numbness. Peek under a table? There's the boy! The room a bit too quiet, is it? It's the girl! All that's frightening are the actors' pained facial expressions, suggesting an epidemic of farty indigestion."
‑ Nick Rogers, Suite101.com
"Repetition is the death of horror."
‑ Brian Tallerico, UGO
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"Vapid, silly and about as scary as an Adam Sandler film."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"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."
‑ Malene Arpe, Toronto Star
"It's a random series of attempted frights that fails at every turn."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Pale-faced, staring, mute Japanese kids strike back."
‑ Mark Palermo, Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
"The Grudge 2 starts out ridiculous, then gets boring, then irritating."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"What's a bad sequel but a revenant soul doomed to repeat itself?"
‑ Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly
"Takako Fuji and Ohga Tanaka, as the ghosts, do MTV Movie Award-caliber work by just crouching in a phone booth."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Seven films later, with the conventions of throat croaking and neck cracking having moved into camp, it's amazing that Shimizu can still find new ways to turn the old screw."
‑ Brian Holcomb, Beyond Hollywood
"...nothing more than a needless rehash of its predecessor..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Every moment of intended terror becomes a slapstick gem, carefully constructed boo frights hit with the hilarity of Lucille Ball stepping on a rake"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
