The plot was boring and confusing. When it finally came to a close it just didn’t leave me feeling satisfied. Yes, I jumped a couple times but that’s the extent of entertainment value I got from the movie. I had high hopes since I loved the previous Grudge movies but left the theater feeling dissatisfied.

This entry of the franchise was slow-paced, as 2004's Grudge is based on Kayako. This movie seemed to be an entirely different movie, as the vitality of "Kayako" was to be based on the introductory character and her family. Lastly, Kayako only appears a split-second cameo in the beginning as Toshio does not make an appearance at all. Finally, the movie did not meet expectations for myself and others had thought the movie was predictable in parts. In conclusion, the movie has it's flaws, but it is mediocre at best movie.

Love the concept of remaking a good Japanese horror movie but this whole movie was completely horrible was not scary was to fast of a movie jumping everywhere on the timeline and didn’t really explain the whole concept of the grudge (the girl) and the ending completely sucked everyone in the audience stood in the chairs wondering if that was it cause it was horrible hated it.

Nothing can compare to Takashi Shimizu's Ju-on or his remake, 2004's The Grudge, but if we have thave a reboot, this should be it. True to the original's rules but a different story with new characters, I enjoyed it. It was slow paced but creepy. Worth watching.

Honestly I loved the past grudges but this one felt like they mashed up all the good scares from past movies and used them in this one, also it wasn’t scary and I’m so confused about the plot! Sadly walked out before it was finished T-T!

Three films into his career, Pesce is batting below average: Last year, he dropped his inventive sophomore stunner, Piercing, and demonstrated range and precision not as evident in his hollow, unrepentantly nasty debut The Eyes of My Mother. With The Grudge, the worst proclivities of that movie override the sensibilities of Piercing and combine with studio horror’s “just play the hits” ethos, resulting in one of the year’s most unpleasant releases to date.

Nothing here is left to the imagination, Pesce running down the list of clichés and ensuring he includes every single one. Once the realization that this is yet another cheap-o retread settles in (about 10 minutes in), the rest becomes agonizingly painful to sit through.

Nearly devoid of scares for the casual horror consumer, it will likely elicit a respectful dismissal from genre connoisseurs: We get what you're trying to do, they might gently say to the filmmakers. It didn't work.
