Ju-on 2 (2003)

aka: The Grudge 2

A film crew making a documentary about a cursed house inadvertently give life to the vengeful spirit that resides within and, predictably, it starts to kill them off one by one, but not before trying to scare them half to death first.
I found Ju-on 2 to be mostly dull. It has the same episodic nature as before, but is (happily?) much simpler to follow. It once more makes staircases and long hair scary, but overall it failed to keep me engaged. Tomoka’s story was the most eerie and would've made a wonderful standalone short.
