Each thread could have functioned as a standalone film about the terrible consequences of presuming safety in a world menaced by invisible dangers.

The jump scares are spot on and the level of gore produced by the makeup artists is truly horrifying.

The dramatic payoff to the buy-in of all this bleak seriousness never really amounts to anything and it makes the viewing kind of a chore.

...we're suffering from a dearth of true boogeymen, the figures that loom in our shared pop-cultural nightmares. It's the faces that stay with us.

An instant front runner for worst movie of the year.

Perhaps all this one needed to be was better than the 2004 film. And indeed it very much is.

'The Grudge (2020)' is a complete misfire in every aspect possible. While it features some fantastic actors, the cast did their best with what little they were given...

Here's the first 'January junk' offering.

I didn't like the time jumps. Just tell us the story in a linear fashion.

The first hour does meander while an ominous mood is established. Then the final act suddenly gets all bashy and crashy, with too many jump scares positioned too close together.

If the devil is in the detail, then that's exactly what this half-hearted horror reboot is missing.

An example of some quite startlingly good film-making.

Pesce has hired some fine actors and squandered them on a plot that isn't ingenious enough to justify the heartlessness that's all part of the package at this end of the horror movie market.
January 30, 2020
Scattershot, tonally all over the place - attempts at jokes jar maddeningly with the film's otherwise bleak atmosphere - and yet completely, utterly, deadeningly boring
January 30, 2020
The Grudge could have been something much more than just another notch in a never-ending franchise. As it is, the film is exactly as competent as it needs to be.
