The movie is a remake of Shimizu's Japanese horror film “Ju-On: The Grudge.” The story follows a group of people who become haunted by a vengeful spirit after entering a cursed house in Tokyo. The curse spreads, and each person who enters the house becomes trapped in a cycle of terror and death.


“The Grudge” is a chilling and atmospheric horror movie that relies on suspense and jump scares to create tension.

“The Grudge” did not receive many award nominations or wins, but it was a commercial success. The movie was nominated for Best Horror Film at the Saturn Awards in 2005, but it lost to “Shaun of the Dead.”


“The Grudge” was a box office success upon release and has since become a popular horror movie. The movie has spawned several sequels and a crossover with “The Ring” franchise. It currently has a 5.9/10 rating on IMDb and a 39% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. “The Grudge” is a must-watch for horror fans and anyone looking for a creepy and suspenseful movie.
