An evil curse and vengeful spirits seem to linger upon a house where the horrific murder of a woman and child took place and anyone who sets foot inside the house is marked for a terrifying haunting, which will not rest. One by one, those who have been tainted by the house begin to die, and nowhere is safe.
In Japan, when the volunteer social assistant Rika Nishina is assigned to visit a family, she is cursed and chased by two revengeful fiends: Kayako, a woman brutally murdered by her husband, and her son, Toshio. Each person that lives or visits the haunted house is murdered or disappears.
Comparing this movie to the previous parts, of the series, I thought this one seemed a little bit better, quality wise. There are probably more scare scenes, found in this one, than the others. Though, it doesn’t have the intense feeling to it, like the other ones did.
Like the previous parts, this movie is also broken down into segments, but not as confusing, as The Curse was with too many segments. The storyline keeps you entertained, from start to finish. I didn’t notice too many boring moments. Also, the movie goes by rather quickly and not drawn out.
Even though this movie may sound a little bit better, than The Curse, I would recommend anyone wanting to watch this movie to start from The Curse, because it explains the story in more detail. Also, you will know everything about what has happened, in the past, instead of trying to guess at it.
