Editorial Reviews

Directed by Takashi Shimizu, The Grudge follows volunteer homecare worker Rika Nishida (Megumi Okina), whose altruism leads her to Chiharu (Yui Ichikawa), a catatonic old woman slowly dying in a home filled with years worth of accumulated filth. Rika's suspicion is aroused when, during the course of her volunteer duties, she can't help but sense an overwhelming feeling of dread. Eventually, Rika opens an old wardrobe only to discover a malevolent boy who introduces himself as Toshio (Yuya Ozeki). It seems as though the house was formerly occupied by a young couple -- Katsuya (Kanji Tsuda), Chiharu's son, and his wife, Kazumi (Risa Matsuda). Sadly, Kazumi was killed thanks to Toshio shortly after moving in, and it wasn't long before Katsuya met a similar fate. When one of Rika's colleagues alerts the local authorities, an investigation turns the house inside out and exposes an ancient and deadly history. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi All Movie Guide

    um, okay...there were two direct-to-video ju-on films (aka ju-on THE CURSE 1 and 2) in 2000 which were remade in 2003-2004 and these theatrical releases became know as Ju-On THE GRUDGE 1 and 2. this here is the first theatrical movie. when lionsgate released this film in a few indie theatres in america this year, posters did in fact bill it as 'ju-on the grudge' however perhaps due to copyright issues (?) this region 1 release is simply called ju-on.

    This isn't a BAD, bad movie, but it's not great. From the initial promising shots (the blood on the futon is very well done) it degenerates into another version of "Ringu" (long hair covering the face: eyes in photgraphs all blurry etc.) and when the zombie schoolgirls turn up, you'll get this horrible feeling you've seen this one before somewhere. Also, you get no real sense of motive. Lots of weird things happen, but just WHY they happen is never really explained. The horror effect is therefore more like a carnival ride than a series of horrifying secrets being slowly revealed leading to a thrilling finish. The movie ends up appearing to be all denouement. For example: the boy turns into a cat... but why for crying out loud?? You'll never know! There is also never any sense that those being scared ever want to fight back. It's like one of those "Lifetime Channel" movies where everyone's a victim: I kept shouting 'Grab a baseball bat and get wacking". Basically very silly, not very original and not very plausible, either.

    Same plot, just remade from the direct to video ones of the same name with the same basic story but just changing a view things, the remake of the remake of the remake was also good too so either way these films are scary with comparison to the ring but just a little confusing and hard to understand at times is all.
