The film has been in development hell since 2011. When it was first announced, it was intended to be a reboot completely discarding The Grudge 3 (2009) and abandoning the Saeki family story. Adam Green, director of Hatchet (2006), was originally slated to direct before he dropped out to focus on adapting the novel, Killer Pizza, for a film. See more »
I went into this movie with pretty low expectations, coming off of seeing the awful Black Christmas remake. The perks, good acting, good atmosphere., good gore. The negatives, everything else.
The Grudge 2020 felt like someone pressed fast forward through the script. Present time, past, rinse and repeat. Not much substance to really have you invested in any of the characters or plot. None of the characters had enough screen time or development to really have you care all that much.
Decent night at the movies for what is a flick I won't be watching again. A generous 6/10 because I liked the cast.
