It was the house stupid!

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Director Takashi Shimizu are teaming up for The Grudge 2...

Um, this sounds like a terrible idea to me. See, when it comes to remakes, I kind of enjoy watching Hollywood destroy good Asian movies. Why? So I can be that jerk that tells you that the original was better! And, secretly, I hope they might get it right, but mostly the whole being a jerk thing.

But this just sounds like a bad idea to begin with. They did the wrong thing in The Grudge by focusing on Gellar's character to begin with. The main character of the story was the house, not the girl. So, now, by bringing her back, they're just making matters worse.
