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.

By the concept is not really a Grudge movie, more like The Ring to me.

#remake

it was supposed to be a sequel but it was a poor remake with reused events and character with no reason to be there. Nothing made sense, the characters were just remakes, the ending was even the same as the first movie. it was so weird, the old cars the old TV's ? why ?

The jump scares were alright, some are pretty predictable. It could have gone better if there was an actual storyline though, it seemed like they just took chunks from the original movie, pieced some things together and left you hanging with redundant flashbacks. I’d rather watch this at home and not in theaters.

With so much to work with and so many talented members of the cast this movie sadly disappoints. There are choices that could have been made that were not made. I wish the movie was better but it’s not and there’s no saving 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.

Not worth seeing in theaters. Just rent it at REDBOX. I love scary movies and have seen all the other grudge movies. This one wasn't that good as expected.

#notthegrudgeatall

this was a decent horror movie for any other idea than it being a grudge movie. It had nothing to do with the original or the American remake. they had it right for the first 5 mins with the scene in Japan but then that's it. nothing else was the grudge. it was just ghost haunted house murder mystery. change the name of the movie and then I'll watch it maybe one more time but nope just don't watch the movie expecting the grudge.

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.
