Director Nicolas Pesce”s “The Grudge” is an adaptation of director Takashi Shimizu”s 2004 American version, which in turn was the remake of the Japanese original “Ju-On: The Grudge”.
The narrative spans over a period of two years ranging from 2005 to 2006, which begins with a rather long prologue that gives us an insight into the curse of the house in which this film”s cinematic universe prevails.
The curse was apparently born after someone died in the powerful grip of extreme rage or sorrow. It gave birth to a supernatural entity who coexisted in the house. Whoever sees it or encounters it, perishes in the most horrific manner, causing a domino effect. This curse is reborn repeatedly, passing from victim to victim in an endless, growing chain of horror.
