About the Movie

From filmmaker Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, Army of Darkness) and acclaimed Japanese director Takashi Shimizu comes a terrifying tale of horror in the tradition of The Ring and 28 Days Later. Sarah Michelle Gellar (TV's Buffy The Vampire Slayer ) stars as an American nurse who has come to work in Tokyo. Following a series of horrifying and mysterious deaths, she encounters the vengeful supernatural spirit that possesses its victims, claims their souls, then passes its curse to another person in a spreading chain of horror. Now, she must find a way to break this supernatural spell or become the next victim of an ancient evil that never dies, but forever lives to kill.

I Love This Movie!!

The Grudge was awesome, sure it's a remake and usually remakes are really bad. But there is something about this one that i just loved.


Well it could have been better it was a great movie, but it would scare the pants off 8 years olds lol anyways I liked this movie my friends and I made fun of it after the millionth time watching it but It was cooL!

One of the few good remakes

Many people have mixed opinions about this movie, but I loved it. It is one of the only good remakes out there these days, and it is truly terrifying. The sequel was horrible compared to this one. I'd recommend it!
