The Grudge is a decent horror diversion: barely a classic, but still pretty atmospheric and suspenseful in its own right.

It's mechanical moviemaking, but when it works you're likely to quiver, cower and leap with fright.

...Suspenseful even without much character development.

Shimizu deveria ao menos corrigir os furos mais grotescos da trama - principalmente se considerarmos que vem trabalhando com o mesmo material há quase cinco anos.

it is as though the original Ju-on had been merged with Lost in Translation, and the result is an intelligent reflection on Hollywood's flawed attempts to recreate Oriental horror in its own image...

Shimizu understands it is the unknown and the unseen that's scariest, resorting to gurgled growls and passing glimpses of greasy-haired demons to illicit shrieks and shouts from a terrified theatre.

there is a sleek, intoxicating artistry to Shimizu's film that makes you forget about things like cause and effect and character motivation

Director Shimizu, as he did with Ju-on, simply inserts something scary into every scene.

It's disappointing to realize that the film truly IS nothing more than a series of people dying. We usually like our thrillers to have something more to them.
