This isn't really a sequal in the classic sense of the word, it just tells further stories of 'that' house, and the different people terrorised (and then killed) by the mind-curdling curse that affects it's residents or anyone even vaguely connected to it. Having said that, it still holds it's own as a great standalone horror film.
The shifts in the film's timeline will leave your brain spinning, but I just about worked it all out on a second (and probably necessary) viewing - the film keeps jumping around to show you how previous and/or future events tie in with other characters - which actually works quite well and will leave you turning it all over in your mind for ages afterwards. Not the easiest film to follow but DEFINATELY worth the return on your investment in terms of scares delivered.
The scenes regarding the 'thumping sounds on the wall' seemed to me to be shoehorned awkwardly and unnecessarily into the US remake of the first film, but here they make much more sense and are far more terrifying when left to play out properly. There are many more memorable moments of spine-freezing terror too.
If you have already seen the American re-make of The Grudge with Sarah Michelle Geller then there's a good chance that this follow up to the Japanese original will come as something of shock. Unlike its US counterpart, this grudge features no real central character and has no real plot development (at least, not in the traditional sense). I personally don't see this as a bad thing, as it allows director Takashi Shimizu to concentrate on crafting a number of scenes of gripping high tension - as the collection of disparate innocents (this time a TV crew shooting a horror film based upon the events of the original film) who unknowingly come into contact with the infamous house and then must come to terms with the unexplainable horror that is happening all around them. However, viewers who look for things like narrative closure, explanations of plot developments and something approaching a hero that they can root for might be sorely disappointed.Read more ›
Essentially Grudge 2 gives us more of the same as we got in the first film, picking up the story of the haunted house and the curse that dwells there an indeterminable length of time after the events of the first film. A group of documentary makers discover the urban legend surrounding the house, and decide to make a program about it, including their special guest star, a movie actress known as "the Queen of horror" Kyoko (Noriko Sakai). Needless to say, once again the house begins to wreak its terrible effect on the film-makers, cast and crew, as restless and vengeful spirits Kayako (Takako Fuji) and Toshio (Yuya Ozeki) exact their terrible retribution. Thrown into this very similar plot (hey, if it ain't broke don't fix it) is a subplot concerning Kyoko's unborn child, which may or may not be hers following an encounter with little Toshio.
Whilst the film uses much the same techniques as the first film (a distinctly unnerving use of sound effects, a non linear narrative, a creeping sense of dread and very little explicit violence) it fails to form a coherent whole. The first film demanded your attention and rewarded you as a result, and this demands the same of the viewer, but unfortunately seems rushed and more than a little unfocused in a lot of places.Read more ›
