Great ads/trailer, lame movie.
October 25, 2004
Well this is not only the biggest disappointment of the year, but one crummy way to ruin my Halloween.

Geller's latest outclasses her "Scooby-Doo" adventures, but is not up to the level of the "best of Buffy."
October 25, 2004
Unfortunately, The Grudge may leave you longing for the solid dramatic structure of Freddy vs. Jason.
October 25, 2004
...foutrement inquiétant et remplit admirablement sa mission : faire peur.
October 25, 2004
Wanna see something REALLY scary? Then take in Ben Affleck's performance in "Surviving Christmas."
October 25, 2004
THE GRUDGE is that annoying blend of genuine scares and really, really dumb people
October 25, 2004
Although it can't seem to improve on the original, this effort should appeal to many due to the popularity of Sarah Michelle Gellar.
October 25, 2004
[Gellar] is matched in lethargy only by Jason Behr, who plays her American boyfriend with the same conviction one would find from a frat guy shopping for Hoobastank CDs.
October 24, 2004
...never goes beyond the "schlocky."
October 23, 2004
the images and sounds Shimizu puts on the screen are often so disturbing and puzzling... that they claw their way into your memory and stick around.

Bottom line, The Grudge would have been ruined in the hands of a typical Hollywood American director.
October 22, 2004
The only grudge I have is against the people that asked this director to make the same movie again - only this time make it less entertaining.
October 22, 2004
It's just not the kind of frightening that stays with you very long, unless of course someone decides to make the same movie . . . yet again.
October 22, 2004
It's enough to send you home with jiggly knees and a tummy ache.
October 22, 2004
One of the flat-out creepiest films ever released by a major American studio.
October 22, 2004
Almost every single one of the American characters has maybe a third of the personality of the ghosts that haunt them, so you begin to think the grudge itself is less a curse than a perfectly reasonable eviction strategy.
October 22, 2004
It's refreshing to see a PG-13 horror film that aims for good old-fashioned spookiness.
October 22, 2004
As it turns out, there is such a thing as a horror film with too much mindless killing.
October 22, 2004
Better photography, a spiffier budget, but it remains a 'What's that?' and 'Who's there?' movie, triggering the responses 'Whatever' and 'Who cares?'
