I’ll never understand how anyone derived any enjoyment from either of the 2 North American versions of The Grudge. Those movies are such travesties that it feels like nothing short of an anal violation to the genius of the originals. But oh well… well all see different things.
News is now out that there will indeed be a Grudge 3, but thankfully, it won’t be taking up any theater space… it’ll be going right to DVD. The good folks over at Moviehole give us this:
The second sequel to the Sarah Michelle Gellar-starring remake of a superior Asian horror film is shooting in – of course – Bulgaria under the direction of Toby Wilkins says Bloody Disgusting. Matthew Knight, who played Jake in “The Grudge 2” (which one was he? Did he appear before I left the theater?), will be back for this next installment.
In the film, a young Japanese woman holds the secret to ending the curse of the Grudge. She travels to the haunted Chicago apartment building where she encounters a family battling to survive. Together they confront the ghost of Kayako to save their souls from their impending tragic fate.
Speaking of Sarah Michelle Gellar, the studio just sent me a copy of her most recent straight to DVD movies called Suburban Girl that she’s in with Alec Baldwin. I’ll watch it for Baldwin… and just hope he spends most of the time spanking Gellar… or pissing on her shoes.
