Don't get me wrong, I really liked the first Grudge.
Linguist2be
Original story, very poor acting, would have been better with more compelling performances.
J. Schick
The first Grudge is a horror classic as far as I'm concerned.

I was also one of the few who saw it already and to be honest, it was a big improvement over The Grudge 2. The acting's pretty decent and the story was a lot more coherent this time around. The deaths weren't all that special but they definitely stepped up in the violence department to say the least. The ghosts were more aggressive and the story gets pretty intense as we get closer to seeing if this is truly the end of Kayako and Toshio's killing spree, but when it's all said and done, I had very mixed feelings about the ending. It's an ending that can truly be interpreted in so many different ways. If this is in fact the final movie of the trilogy, then we're left with a lot to think about. Rather that's a good or a bad thing is up to you.

On the the whole, despite me seeing it early, I'm seriously buying it no matter what. It definitely wasn't a waste of my time, but it doesn't surpass the first one in any way.If you're a die hard fan like me, you'll enjoy what this film has to offer to some extent.

I got this from a friend an can't honestly tell if this was a bootleg or not because it seemed pretty authentic, but even than I first thought this would be just as terrible as the second Grudge and was greatly surprised as how much better this one was than the second. The story beginning shows the young boy who was alive after the ending of the second movie in a asylum secure room as everyone thinks he's unstable and delusional as he continues to spout out about the spirit of Kayako and her plans to kill him. Well as you might expect they don't believe him and lock him in the room where of course Kayako does kill him very painfully, after that they show you the apartment complex from the second movie where Kayako has apparently cursed as well. The movie mainly keeps the focus on four people the first is Max(The elder brother who manages the complex and takes care of his two sisters Lisa and Rose and is also struggling to keep the complex afloat since most of the tenants have left), Lisa(The oldest sister who plans on going away and trying a career she's tried for a long time), Rose(The youngest sister who has a medical problem that also adds to her brothers concern both about her health and trying to keep the medical expenses paid), and finally Naoko(The younger sister of Kayako and feels it's up to her to try and end her sisters curse that's harming everyone). The actors and actresses in the movie were pretty decent and while the effects weren't that many it still did pretty good and left you the feeling of foreboding knowing when a victim of Kayako was about to be offed. While it doesn't quite reach the fear factor of the first movie it still way surpasses that of the second and that was enough for me. So if you've already got the first two movies finish the set with the third even though it didn't come out and theaters it's still a nice horror ghost movie to watch with the lights out...

At this point the Asian horror genre is somewhat tired due to American remakes of the Ring & The Grudge, followed by their sequels. The first Grudge came at a time when we were still intrigued by this creepy, robotic moving ghost girl which led to a decent film. The second was pretty much the same deal with a little less of a budget, a slightly weaker story, and an appearance of Kumar. Now we are brought to the third and hopefully last installment which lacks just about everything. Obviously the budget was way less since it was a straight to dvd release, the story was the same but with a few boring twists, and our scary ghost girl/brother have really lost their effect.

The story picks up kind of where the second one left off. The apartment in Chicago where our asian ghosts have caused havoc is now forcing tenants to flee leaving it close to shutting down. Max is the manager of the complex who lives there with his two younger sisters. As he desperately tries to retain and gain new tenants he winds up becoming possessed by the spirits. As his sisters lives lay in the balance between the spirits and their possessed brother they are told they must do a ceremony to end the spell.

Out of the series this by far is the worst of all. It was supremely boring with way too much dialogue. To watch the film you will have to fast forward through roughly 70 % of it or you will be fast asleep in you chair like Santa at work. Even the ghost girl and her brother were way less creepy. The way the girl would crawl around in that bizarre twitching motion has even been cut back. I guess they couldn't afford the camera function that made it appear so scary because this one didn't have it. Even their make-up was more b. It looked like they rolled the actors in some flour and threw them out on set. When this one is returned it will get the Sid patented "He's gone, the evil's gone from here!" We would NOT have enjoyed this one back in the glory days.

The Grudge 3 tells the story about a brother and his two sisters, who live in the apartment building from "The Grudge 2", fighting for their lives against the menacing ghosts of Kayako and Toshio. A young Japanese woman Naoko, revealed as Kayako's sister, travels to the apartment and Dr. Ann Sullivan (Shawnee Smith) investigates also, after the death of her patient Jake, the sole survivor of the sequel.

First of all, if you've seen as many horrible DTV films I have, you'll immediately notice that The Grudge 3 is one of the better ones in terms of production values, actors, quality etc. The trailer for the film makes it look cheap, but the movie looks just as theatrical as the first two. The soundtrack is exactly the same from the first two movies, the apartment looks exactly the same from the sequel, plenty of exterior shots and a solid set of actors. This movie actually looks like it had a budget to work with, unlike recent horrible sequels "Pulse 2" and "Pulse 3".

DTV movies in general, and sequels such as "Wrong Turn 2", "Joy Ride 2", "The Grudge 3" etc. are definitely getting a lot better, and some of them are even better than some of the crap in theaters. If you've seen the first two, you'll also notice this is the most violent Grudge movie yet, with some bloody deaths. Kayako and Toshio have been recast, but it's not necessarily a huge issue since they are just actors in white make-up.

The acting is solid from the cast, and it was great to see Shawnee Smith (Saw I, II, III) in another horror movie. Toby Wilkins, who recently directed the very good horror movie "Splinter" (2008), does a great job here and is probably one of the reasons why it doesn't feel cheap and tacky. He's a talented director and does a solid job.
