The Grudge (2020)



Critic Consensus: Dull and derivative, the rebooted Grudge wastes a talented cast and filmmaker on watered-down scares that may leave viewers nursing grievances of their own.

Critic Reviews for The Grudge

All Critics (121) | Top Critics (20)

Pesce has hired some fine actors and squandered them on a plot that isn't ingenious enough to justify the heartlessness that's all part of the package at this end of the horror movie market.

The Grudge could have been something much more than just another notch in a never-ending franchise. As it is, the film is exactly as competent as it needs to be.

January 30, 2020 | Rating: 3/5

Forget about chilling to the bone, The Grudge barely drops below room temperature.

We shouldn't have to put up with the barrel-scraping inadequacies of "creak, creak, creak, screamy face!" any more. So don't.

Trapped in a pile of garbage: I'm sure the cast of The Grudge know how that feels.

January 23, 2020 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

This new reboot (of sorts) sidles up like the return of a lingering bad smell, reminding you that there's something nasty behind the wardrobe you really ought to sort out.
