[4.00/10] The Grudge (2020)

The Grudge (2020)

Quick Review: A couple of creepy images aside, and a talented cast that is, sadly, totally wasted due to a subpar script they have to work with, Pesce's useless reboot is a poorly-conceived, insipidly-shot and largely derivative horror film with disjointed blandly built-up 'slow burn' wannabe plot-line, major tonal issues that will leave you numb and confused, and 'soggy' scares which feel too been-there-done-that to be effective, not to mention "The Grudge" is anything but fun, or entertaining.

I didn't think the original(s) were that great.
It's been a weird trend these past few years to take average movies and remake them and most turn out to be an even worse film.

Me neither. Not a huge fan. The Japanese original was alright, but I've always preferred The Ring/Ringu franchise over this one.
This one is actually a reboot of a remake, which makes it even more ridiculous.
