Did You Know?
- The film had been in development hell since 2011. When it was first announced, it was intended to be a reboot completely discarding The Grudge 3 (2009) and abandoning the Saeki family story. Adam Green, director of Hatchet (2006), was originally slated to direct before he dropped out to focus on adapting the novel, Killer Pizza, for a film.

Don't waste ur money go to Mcdonalds instead not a joke
Don’t waste your time not scary at all and very predictable
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.
