The Grudge 2 also has a plot twist, which early on becomes reasonably obvious, so when it plays out at the end, there isn't much surprise in store. . Unfortunately, it was nowhere near as good as I had hoped. The significance of her eyes flashing into view isn't to tell you who is going to die but to convey the state of the spirits in the film. Yes, I have high hopes, but realistic expectations.
The skipping about in the timeline is done very well as well. One, it is well known that this is a remake based on the Japanese film series that began with Ju-On 2000 in particular, it's extremely close to the first half of Ju-On: The Grudge, aka Ju-On 3, from 2003. The film's fractured narrative, while giving The Grudge 2 some difference from the previous entry, works against the film in many ways also.

With The Grudge 2, director Takashi Shimizu and screenwriter Stephen Susco have attempted to not fall into that trap by approaching the sequel a little differently, but by the time it's over, unfortunately, it still proves to be a little too repetitive for its own good. Yes, The Grudge is a fine film, but ultimately, I'd rather see something original using this talent, and be treated to the latest foreign horror films--not just Japanese, but also Indian, Spanish, Chinese, etc.
The girls in the film, which is what the stories largely center around, do their best to cry, scream and shake hysterically, and they are all reasonably effective, but there is nothing revolutionary being performed. I am going to see it again this week and am excited about it. Because it is constantly switching back and forth between three different subplots, it is difficult to get attached to any of the characters. I was very excited about seeing this, as I love the original series, I didn't think the first remake was that bad, Takashi Shimizu directed it, and I have gradually become a fan of Amber Tamblyn. The hair is a classic Japanese horror technique.
A longer running time could've produced more in-depth character development, a more clever way to explain what was going on, and maybe even a better ending. We don't pray to any of them save very important ones, say ones that protect your home, they just exist. The Grudge has a couple significant differences from other recent examples of that trend, however. I'm sure we've all explored strange noises before, except rather than a horrific, disfigured ghost producing the noise, in real life the sound is usually coming from Uncle Larry's bathroom excursion. I think it works fairly well, but one of my complaints is that near the end everything is wrapped up and explained rather quickly. Word to the wise, though: I thought some of the scenes were a little psychotic. I have a friend I would like you to meet.
Unlike 2004's The Grudge, which unfolded in a largely linear fashion, The Grudge 2 shakes things up a bit by splitting the narrative between three different plot lines that all take place at different times. Horror films are even more difficult to spin a sequel off from, as suspense and scares are often, by nature, dependent on a lack of expectation from the audience. It's so bad that I don't think we should even dignify it by labeling it a twist.

However, the circumstances in which these characters make their appearances have used up the suspense quotient of this franchise. Some people think jump scenes are cheap ploys to get a scare from the audience, but they're really well done in this movie. There's not one memorable acting performance.
The audience at this movie was probably the most obnoxious crowd I've ever had the displeasure of watching a movie with. The scares become very routine and there are so many characters here, that the viewer cannot become attached to any of them. Eyes are the portals into the spirit. It's not dull like other horror films where a haunted house just has ghosts and gore. So why was this movie scary. However, even if you're not used to it, it's worth trying to suspend your normal preconceptions about films and give The Grudge a shot. There was a lot of that during the movie.
I was very close to just walking through the audience and punching random people. Its scary because for a culture that has spirits watching over every little thing you could think of, having a few spirits who's purpose is to cause pain is pretty serious. I never keep my hopes up for sequels and this movie was no different. Watch the movie with that in mind.

This is a most-of-the-time spooky movie. What more do you want.
