Sequel to the grudge

The Grudge 2 is a lot better than the the grudge. The first one is mediocre, and this movie is decent. It is not anywhere near as scary as the original, and it is not as tense or suspensful. Here is what parents need to know about the film: Violence (2 /10)- only violence is a bit of blood when a woman jumps of a building and onto the ground. A bit of blood splat and that is all of the violence. Language (3/10)- uses of damn and hell, and one swear word ( sh*t) and that is all of the language. It is mainly used when encountering kayakoo or the boy. Sexual content (3.5/10)- kissing is shown, and a couple are ready to have sex, but they get killed before it all happens. A bit of sexual talk. No drugs smoking or alcohol is in this movie at all. The movie itself is decent and pretty watchable, and is a lot better than the grudge 1. Overall, I think that this is appropriate for 11 years old or older.

The Grudge 2 Review

Who could of think a sequel to a horrible movie would be even more horrible? Oh I did. The Grudge 2 is a very confusing and non-scary sequel that it gets boring after a while. No effective jump scares, zero suspense, a plot that makes no sense like I said before. Halloween 2 is better then this piece of garbage. I am giving The Grudge 2 a 1/10
