Movie Info

The ghosts of Kayako and Toshio return to spread terror as the Grudge saga continues in this sequel featuring Saw star Shawnee Smith. Jake (Matthew Knight) may have survived the previous supernatural onslaught, though the sheer terror of his harrowing ordeal has rendered him nearly insane. Hospitalized, Jake is haunted by visions of his ghostly attackers as his caretaker Dr. Sullivan (Smith) sets out to investigate his incredible tales. In the midst of exploring Jake's Chicago home, Dr. Sullivan discovers that Kayako and Toshio have targeted a new family. Should Dr. Sullivan fail in convincing a mysterious Japanese woman to help in banishing the vengeful spirits, everyone involved faces a fate worse than death.

Critic Reviews for The Grudge 3

  • The Grudge 3 isn't perfect, and sometimes the film feels like it's trying a little too hard to emulate Shimizu's work. Ultimately though, the 3rd act left me feeling like the series had finally come to a satisfying resolution.

  • 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

    Generic and uninspired, The Grudge 3 is a vapid and pointless horror film. The story follows the evil spirit of Kayako as it attempts to renew the curse in a Chicago apartment complex after having been brought there by a former curse victim. It's a completely ridiculous plot that doesn't make much sense. The acting is particularly bad, but not as awful as the makeup and special effects; which are the worst of the entire series. The Grudge 3 is an insultingly atrocious film that's all tropes and no substance.

    I'm so mad at myself.I should've used a promo code so I could've got this movie for free at Redbox.I feel like I took a $1 & threw it in the trash.I never liked Grudge 1 or 2 so I don't know why I rented it.It was just a repeat of the 1st 2 movies.Out of the 3 of them, I'd say the 1st & 2nd were equally bad but The Grudge 3 was garbage.It's a movie that you probably won't stick around to see how it ends

    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.

    Very different from the others, and at some points very boring\slow-paced. Dissapointed, mainly because Toby Wilkins, the director of the award winning "Splinter," aka: Possibly the greatest horror film of all time, directed it. Please don't let me down again, Toby!
