This American remake... has a kind of watered down feel to it, as if it were just a necessary step to be taken in a long series of events.

Completely misses the point of the original.

It knows how to startle someone with a quick shock but it soon becomes apparent that it has no more tricks up its sleeve...

This material tries to camouflage its nagging repetitiveness with a lot of confusing flashbacks.

Many a movie has gone before the camera before the script was finished. The Grudge went before the camera before the outline of the script was finished.

I want to scream in terror (like at a Jennifer Lopez movie, or when I stand naked in front of my mirror). Sadly, The Grudge's scares aren't accompanied by much else.

"The Grudge" is soulless, half-baked sludge that should have gone straight to video.
Full Review | Original Score: D-
October 19, 2004
A minimal, stylish look and sinister atmosphere support a ho-hum storyline and pedestrian script.

Shimizu deveria ao menos corrigir os furos mais grotescos da trama - principalmente se considerarmos que vem trabalhando com o mesmo material há quase cinco anos.

Rather than building to a climax, Shimizu introduces his poltergeists too early. Once the ghosts start rattling around, we can generally anticipate what's coming next.

The new film's hill of beans doesn't loom very tall when its acting weight rests on the shoulders of Sarah Michelle Gellar and the ever-likable but unassertive Bill Pullman.

It isn't frightening. Sometimes, in fact, it's laughable.

The trouble with Shimizu's impressionistic approach is that it doesn't entrench you deep enough inside anybody's head or put you far enough behind anyone's point of view for the scares to really work.

The cold, impersonal climate of much of the decor proves more frightening than the secret at the movie's core.

Anyone who has ever seen a horror flick will know where this one's going every inch of the way.

Almost every single one of the American characters has maybe a third of the personality of the ghosts that haunt them, so you begin to think the grudge itself is less a curse than a perfectly reasonable eviction strategy.

Great ads/trailer, lame movie.

The only grudge I have is against the people that asked this director to make the same movie again - only this time make it less entertaining.
