The calm facade of a modest house in Tokyo belies the hidden terror within. It is possessed by an ancient and violent curse that attacks all who enter. Known as "The Grudge," this curse causes its victims to die in the grip of a powerful rage. As each victim is claimed a new curse is born - passed like a virus to all those who enter the house in an endless, growing chain of horror.
Karen (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is an exchange student studying social work in Japan who innocently agrees to cover for a nurse who hasn't show up for work. When she enters the assigned home, she discovers an elderly American woman, Emma (Grace Zabriskie), lost in a catatonic state while the rest of the house appears deserted and dishevelled.
As she is tending to the stricken old woman, Karen hears scratching sounds from upstairs. When she investigates, she is faced with a supernatural horror more frightening than she could ever imagine. As people begin to die around her, Karen is pulled into the cycle of horror and learns the secret of the vengeful curse that has taken root in this house.
Now she must stop it before it's too late.
What the critics are saying:
"It's impressively faithful to the Japanese original - if you've not seen that version, prepare yourself for one of the scariest mainstream films in years."- Jamie Russell, BBCi Film"The Grudge simply wants to make you wet your pants. Even if it doesn't, you'll still find yourself in the market for a nightlight."- Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune"The new version is slightly less frightening than the original, but it's still a scary psycho-horror that effectively replicates its bleak and crisp shocks."- Richard James Havis, Hollywood Reporter
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
