Unfortunately, the 2020 version of The Grudge is an example of a remake that should not have attempted a comeback.

I wish I could tell you that this latest iteration of The Grudge is a good version of this story, but I don't want to lie to you.

It's a throwback to an era not far removed but mostly swept under the rug. The Grudge is a vicious update to a genre staple, it's not groundbreaking, but it's a got enough shock, awe and chills to keep you entertained.

Too many storylines and no one to solve them. It's unbelievably complex and feels too much like a wasted opportunity. [Full review in Spanish].

Each thread could have functioned as a standalone film about the terrible consequences of presuming safety in a world menaced by invisible dangers.

The jump scares are spot on and the level of gore produced by the makeup artists is truly horrifying.

The dramatic payoff to the buy-in of all this bleak seriousness never really amounts to anything and it makes the viewing kind of a chore.

...we're suffering from a dearth of true boogeymen, the figures that loom in our shared pop-cultural nightmares. It's the faces that stay with us.

An instant front runner for worst movie of the year.

Perhaps all this one needed to be was better than the 2004 film. And indeed it very much is.

'The Grudge (2020)' is a complete misfire in every aspect possible. While it features some fantastic actors, the cast did their best with what little they were given...

Here's the first 'January junk' offering.

As a fascination, I'd say it's worth seeing, but as a piece of spooky entertainment, you could do much better.

Everything's been seen before and better. [Full review in Spanish]

The most disappointing aspect of The Grudge is that it wastes its talented cast. [Full Review in Spanish]

Satisfactorily spine-chilling and macabre while not quite terrifying

I didn't like the time jumps. Just tell us the story in a linear fashion.

The first hour does meander while an ominous mood is established. Then the final act suddenly gets all bashy and crashy, with too many jump scares positioned too close together.

If the devil is in the detail, then that's exactly what this half-hearted horror reboot is missing.
