Really enjoy watching the grudge, even though we are mislead or left questioning things at varied points in the film the ending brings understanding surrounding the backstory to the Grudge. Some good jump scares and great usage of sound design to create an eeriness to the film.
I was was astounded at how inaccurate the reviews are for The Grudge on this site. Usually Rotten Toms is pretty reliable. The same director who helmed the original did this American remake. This is a classic. Truly terrifying if, like me, your weak spot is ghosts.
Using Japanese mythology to lay the groundwork for a spine-tingling haunted house chiller, The Grudge remains the closest to reaching the Asian horror remake standard set by The Ring, thanks to concise moments of gut-wrenching dread, creepy imagery and a terrific performance from Sarah Michelle Gellar.
The Grudge is too much confusing and bad acted to understand what and why the things are happening, and with the help of a poor soundtrack, the predictable narrative and the lack of originality we can consider this movie a truly fiasco.
The Grudge a creepy film, but it lacks what the original had. Which was true horror, but for a remake it did a good job, but a unnecessary remake. However, great performance by Sarah Michelle Gellar, and the cast did their part.
