OH NO!!! Not AGAIN!!!

Generally speaking, I like a little more plot with my 'Boo!' moments.

Despite a few effective scares, this new Grudge never really generates the right amount of tension.
November 6, 2004
A visually interesting but fatally underwhelming horror film, cynically devised to avoid taxing the intellect of anyone on a third-grade reading level.

A haunted house that leaves you feeling less than spooked and more than a little ripped off.... It's Ghost Story 101.

This American remake... has a kind of watered down feel to it, as if it were just a necessary step to be taken in a long series of events.

I've seen Pokemon movies that are scarier.

Japanese cult chiller remake isn't your usual Hollywood horror flick, but it also isn't very good.

"The Grudge" is soulless, half-baked sludge that should have gone straight to video.

Ju-On's success rested in its powerful atmosphere... yet that aura only presents itself sporadically in the Yankee Grudge.

A nonstop parade of nonsensical doings that makes you suspect most of the characters don't have two brain cells to rub together.

The Grudge is so amazing to look at that some might even be able to forgive the fact that the plot never kicks into gear. But I cannot.

It's no more impressive than hiding in the dark and shouting 'Boo!' when someone walks into a room.
October 26, 2004
The Grudge isn't nearly as scary as the upcoming election.
October 26, 2004
Without payoff, alluring buildup isn't worth much.
October 26, 2004
Many a movie has gone before the camera before the script was finished. The Grudge went before the camera before the outline of the script was finished.

Those who've seen Shimizu's creepy original aren't likely to be impressed...
