Goofs

The grudge curse was created when Takeo murdered both his wife, Kayako, and son, Toshio. Naoko tries to end the curse by getting Rose to drink Kayako's blood during the ceremony she held in the apartment where the curse was reborn. Drinking Kayako's blood would unlikely stop Toshio's ghost, meaning only Kayako would be stopped. This would mean that the curse would not have been ended by Naoko's ceremony. See more »

Same Old Stuff
1 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To be honest, i was expecting perhaps something, probably too much, that would perhaps be original and new to the third grudge. But i think this was even worse than the others. Nearly the entire movie takes place in the same apartment building with the same stupid people who don't believe anything. This is simply the same story told yet again. The ending wasn't really surprising. It ends so that yet another Grudge can come out in the future. Grudge 4 will most likely be announced, if it's not already announced, in the near future. Rated R because more blood, but not really gore so much. i would say this is a decent movie other than the fact that it is the same old stuff. Come on Hollywood! Give us some originality! 4 out of 10
