The Grudge


GENRE: Drama, Horror, Mystery & Suspense.

RATED: – for mature thematic material, disturbing images/terror/violence, and some sensuality.

DIRECTED BY: Takashi Shimizu

WRITTEN BY: Stephen Susco

RUNNING TIME: 1 hr. 30 min.

PLOT: An American nurse (Sarah Michelle Gellar) living in Tokyo purchases this strange and haunted house that is exposed with to a supernatural curse that takes back history 2 years ago. The supernatural curse that locks a person in a powerful rage before claiming their life and spreading to another victim. Kayako (Takako Fuji) the person whom was killed by her husband becomes the the supernatural curse and is said that her rage will kill and destroy anything it touches.

VERDICT: The Grudge was a huge hit because it had three things going for it: 1.) Sarah Michelle Geller, 2.) a teen-friendly PG-13 rating and 3.) an obvious, unspoken connection to The Ring (also a Japanese import remade for American audiences). As for this reviewer, those numbers add up to very little when the story is often incoherent and the horror elements are watered down. Sony’s work on this disc, however, is better than average.

VERDICT (MY REASON): I’ve got a grudge with The Grudge, but you may feel differently. 😀

      You got a point.
      The last picture I put was because of reluctance and concern because the rest of the Grudge pictures were either too horrifying or bloody . . .
