Follow up to the 2004 film of the same name - a US remake of the Japanese film 'Ju-on' (2003) by Takashi Shimizu. In this sequel, the vengeful and terrible curse continues to consume and petrify all in its path as we are shown three seemingly unconnected stories. An American girl discovers her sister is being held in a Japanese hospital and is simultaneously under suspicion of arson/murder in which her boyfriend has died. She immediately goes to be at her sister's side but is intercepted by a journalist who informs her that her sister is being consumed by a dark force. At the same time, an American girl at an international school elsewhere in Tokyo is trying to get in with the school's top girls. She'll do anything to be accepted so when she's told to go into a mysterious burned-out house, she doesn't question it.Jake is living with his dad who has remarried quite soon after his mom's death, so the boy becomes sullen and withdrawn. He's easily drawn to a mysterious, equally withdrawn neighbour.
