The Grudge (2004)

2004 | PG-13 | Horror, Thriller, Mystery

User Score: 77/100


An American nurse living and working in Tokyo is exposed to a mysterious supernatural curse, one that locks a person in a powerful rage before claiming their life and spreading to another victim.

The Grudge is a very good and twisted movie. The Japanese believe that if there is a lot of anger and rage at the time of death, the spirit that died curses the establishment that it died in. The death is then repeated on living inhabitants/visitors thus continuing the cycle. I have seen a lot of horror movies and this is one of the few that actually managed to freak me out. The spirits look so jaw dropping frightening. The ending is great as well where you actually start figuring out what was the cause of the horrible murder that occurred here.
