See below for the exact times and descriptions of the 21 jump scares in The Grudge 2, which has a jump scare rating of 4.5.

Jump Scare Rating: Although there are a lot of jump scares throughout this movie, Shimizu’s sound-design is far away from the high-pitch violins of the early 2000’s horror genre. Numerous, but not deafening, far from it.

Synopsis: After Karen (the protagonist of the first movie) is hospitalized after a fire, her sister, Aubrey, is sent to bring her back to the US. But when she finds Karen, she also becomes cursed by Kayako, a malevolant spirit born from anger.
