I liked this better than the feature, because, for one thing, it was less predictable. I mean, how often do "making-of's" spend about half their time on location scouting? (Both the "Chicago" and "Tokyo" scenes of THE GRUDGE 3 were shot in Bulgaria.) Feature director Toby Wilkins, producer Andrew Pfeffer, and executive producer J.R. Young divided up most of the talking head time (around the feature clips and behind-the-scenes segments), and showed more savvy here than they were able to actually convey to the plotting of the feature. No doubt some credit goes to TOKYOGOARIA editor Andrew Laurich.
In addition to the trio mentioned above, this making-of includes comments from production designer Bobby Mihaylovski, as well as cast members Matthew Knight (Jake), Shawnee Smith (Dr. Sullivan), Johanna Braddy (Lisa), Gil McKinney (Max), and Jadie Hobson (Rose).
