Although handsomely shot, with several good actors doing their best and a small handful of unsettling visuals, ‘The Grudge’ is ultimately a dull, disjointed mess that is riddled with cheap “boo!“ moments. I hope Pesce rebounds quickly from this failed effort in franchise-building and gets back to making the kind of idiosyncratic films he’s clearly capable of.

The fact that this is how my 2020 film-watching career starts seems like a **REAL** bad omen for this year.
Update: Oh boy.
_Final rating:★ – Of no value. Avoid at all costs._
THE GRUDGE 1.5
I see some people here calling this a remake and I’m thinking “Where they even paying attention!?!”. This movie is a sequel and takes place during the same timeline of the 2004 version and the years 2005 and 2006. Only this time the curse has been brought to the US by the first nurse that was taking care of the elderly lady from the first movie. Anyways, I have to say the editing is a mess and most of the characters are lifeless, but the actors did their best with what was given. I actually like the cast and I think Lin Shaye and Jacki Weaver are the highlights of the film. Its biggest mistake was not bringing back the iconic ghosts that fans have grown to love. This is their franchise.
Horror Movie Garbage to start off 2020
Good: There really is not much good to say about this movie except that the acting isn’t awful from Lin Shaye and John Cho.
Bad: Messy writing with convoluted plot lines with time frame switches from 2004-2006, cannot focus on one story at a time. There is barely any story and relies heavily on jump scares. There are so many bland scenes and an annoying ominous score in the background to create an atmosphere but utterly fails. There are also random cinematographic shots that provide no purpose other than to extend the runtime.
Overall: This is one of the worst horror movies I have seen in a long time that is awful and entirely unnecessary. The plot clearly sat at a desk and is now only being produced to make a profit from a low budget. The story does not add up to much or provide any additional lore and has no significant themes. No entertainment value from this!
