Parents need to know that The Grudge 2 is a 2006 supernatural horror film in which the evil spirits in the first movie find new victims to torment. While this teen-targeted horror sequel features relatively little actual gore, the scary scenes are tense and aggressive, with loud soundtrack effects, jarring editing, and insinuated violence. There's some brief nudity (male and female characters appear in showers and bathtubs) and a scene that sets up sex in a hotel room between two teens, but doesn't deliver because the ghost strikes. Ghost attacks throughout the movie are discordant and sometimes alarming. The ghosts are very creepy-looking, shadows and noises establish scary spaces, and characters scream and show fear and pain repeatedly. There's some actual violence (someone is slammed with a frying pan in the first scene, and murders are referred to repeatedly), as well as lots of abstract and menacing visual references to violence: blood on the walls and on a couple of faces, a broken neck in a contorted ghost figure, and drowned bodies. Cigarette smoking. "Mean girl" teens verbally bully and peer pressure another teen girl.
