The ghosts of the Grudge come back in this third outing from Ghost House Pictures, who rev up the production with Toby Wilkins helming. Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert produce the film, which will once again focus on the deadly guttural-voiced specters that have survived both a film series in America as well as the original Ju-on series in Japan.

Perhaps the most perplexing cinematic mystery of the new millenium is why and how Ghosthouse Productions managed to run their Grudge franchise into the depths of the direct-to-video abyss so quickly.

Audience Reviews for The Grudge 3

Passable sequel that picks up right after the previous film. The first two films milked the most out of the story and scares so this one had little surprising to offer. Not scary at all really, has the odd creepy moment and some cheap "Boo" scares but it was getting a bit repetitive. The opening kill was a little disturbing and there's a couple of bloodier moments towards the end. It was ok overall but it's the weakest of the Grudge films, both American and Japanese ones.

I had my doubts about this one after reading so many bad reviews, so quite honestly, it could only be an improvement on what I was imagining. I found this not that bad at all. Okay, it's not particularly scary, but nor were the previous two, let's be serious here! The original Japanese ones, I think, were genuinely scary, but the remakes have always been more kitschy as far as I'm concerned. The no name cast are decent, particularly Matthew Knight in his brief appearance, and if you take it for what it is, it is enjoyable enough to watch.

An ok 3rd installment, although straight to DVD release. Lower budget but the production is pretty good, but it's just not as creepy as the first two. The boy that appears at times was weird in the first two in this it looks like an older actor was used. The same goes for Kayako, in the first two she was very strange and creepy in this she just looks very white? For those who really liked the first two films.
