Three interwoven stories about a terrible curse. A young woman encounters a malevolent supernatural force while searching for her missing sister in Tokyo; a mean high school prank goes horribly wrong; a woman with a deadly secret moves into a Chicago apartment building.
Karen Davis, an American Nurse, moves to Tokyo and encounters a supernatural spirit who is vengeful and often possesses its victims. A series of horrifying and mysterious deaths start to occur, with the spirit passing its curse onto each victim. Karen must now find away to break this spell, before she becomes its next victim.Written by
(at around 17 mins) According to the DVD commentary by the cast and crew, the first of appearance of the cat right when Karen picks up Kayako's journal was not, in fact, a real cat, but it was a fake cat held by a crew member, racing it in front of the camera. See more »
(at around 59 mins) When Karen is searching the net, she is on "www.tdn_japan.con" [sic]. This address wouldn't work. Also the Google bar spells "Imaegs" not "Images". See more »

Two slightly different versions of the film were used for test screenings. One was R-rated, while the other was rated PG-13. The PG-13 cut, which had toned down some of the disturbing images, tested better with screeners. See more »
The grudge stars Sarah Michelle Gellar as a woman dealing with a house in dire need of therapy. A tragedy happened there a while back and the house just refuses to let the anger go and move on. Basically, it's a slow moving movie, almost exactly like its predecessor, using the same sets and some of the same stars as well. Unfortunately the first movie wasn't that good either, but because it was original I gave it a higher rating than this version. One of my reasons being that the scariest moment in the first movie is about the only scene not duplicated in this remake (that of a woman staring down on the lady in bed while Toshio scratches his legs at the foot of it, as seen in the previews of the original.) Anyway, to sum things up,"The Grudge" has potential to be scary, but it's rather like an excellent set of blueprints drawn in crayon. Something's seriously wrong here.
