Consensus: A diminished sequel that makes even less sense than The Grudge 1.

L.A. Weekly

Some unsettling moments here, but the evil ghost itself is a predictable one-trick pony.

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.

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.

Vapid, silly and about as scary as an Adam Sandler film.

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.

It's a random series of attempted frights that fails at every turn.

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.
