A curse born in Japan is simultaneously unleashed in the U.S. Those who encounter it are consumed by its fury and met with a violent fate. Producer Sam Raimi brings us the untold chapter of this horror classic starring Andrea Riseborough, Demián Bichir, John Cho, and Betty Gilpin, with horror movie legend Lin Shaye (Insidious, Ouija) and Jacki Weaver, in the darkest, creepiest and most shocking film in the series.

The Grudge (Also released as The Grudge: The Untold Chapter on Blu-ray) was a movie that at first supposed to be a reboot but now seems to be just another sequel with a very loose connection to the other movies. It doesn’t even really have the ghosts we’re used to in it very much at all. So, if you like the older movies don’t go into this one expecting anything on that level. This is a really depressing movie in a lot of ways. I always found the other movies to be at least fun and creepy, this one doesn’t offer up much more than just some blood and gore here and there with a very depressing tone and a slow pace the rest of the way. That really disappoints me a great deal, as I had a lot of high hopes going into this one that was soon dashed.

The movie starts off with a woman leaving the infamous haunted house in Japan, once she returns home is kicks off a series of events that we follow for the rest of the movie. Eventually, we have a detective on the case as we see things that have now taken place in that now haunted American house along the way leading up to the current time frame. This one really doesn’t do much to want you to see any more sequels to this thing. We have a rather uninspired movie that creeps along but fails to actually creepy you out while you watch it. Outside the blood and few moments we see the ghosts we thought we’d see coming into this, this one doesn’t really bring anything good to the table.
