The Grudge 3 Straight To DVD

Grudge-3-DVD.jpgI’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.

  1. The Grudge 3 is actualyl going to be much better then the first two ones sine well this time they are acutally supposed to get to the point and confornt the Kayako ghost or watever..Drector Toby Wilkins will do a great Job in directing this movie starring Matthew Knight Shawnee Smith Beau Mirchoff Johanna E. Braddy ..Im sure this movie is going to box offices even though is being shot in Eastern Europe..

    There’s also another movie being shot in Eastern Europe..The Messengers 2 by screenwriter Todd Farmer…Facing this movie I got really optimist sine I liked the first one starring one of my favorite sex and the city, characters and I believe that Martin Barnewitz will do an amazin job directing this movie starring Norman Reedus from American Gangster, mermaid from the Australian TV show H2o just add water Claire Holt, and Erbi Ago, a new face in the movie business.
    This prequel goes back to the farm from the first film to finally learn the story of John Rollins – the simple North Dakota farmer, struggling to save his farm and hold his family together. When he places a mysterious scarecrow in his field his luck changes for the better… but it may be at the cost of his sanity.

  2. It cracks me up when I see people talking shit about the Grudge series, especially the American version(s). It makes me think…

    …maybe you should turn off Monday Night Raw and put away your Godsmack CD. Read a fucking book. These flicks seem to scare the crap out of people who are working on a higher intellectual level than the average trailer park dweller. It never fails, when I hear a person mention how dumb the Grudge movies are, chances are their intelligence quotient is around 62 and the Grudge and exposes them to non-linear story telling. Thinking about a movie hurts, right? I want everything in order, wrapped up with a bow on it. God fucking forbid I have to use logic and reasoning to figure out a plot. I LIKE SEEING PEOPLE BEING TORTURED FOR BEING CHILD MOLESTERS AND SUCH!

    God, please bless us American Idiots. I’m moving to Canada if another Republican gets in office. LaTeRZ!

  3. I have a grudge against anyone who makes these movies. Luckily, I saw “Juon” initially and that set the bar for what the Americans could have done with it. The remake – sucked. It’s disappointing how many great movies Asian writers and directors come out with that Americans don’t see. I recommend to everyone, when a movie comes out, google it to see if it is a remake and see the remake first. It is remade for a purpose – because it was so good and has been overlooked.

    Oh, I’m the first to admit I’m a wuss ; ) It really was that they took things that already scared me and used those in the movie. If you didn’t have my particular and peculiar set of fears, it’s probably nowhere near as frightening.

    During Grudge 2 though, I wasn’t as scared because I was about to grab the cell phone from the teenager in front of me and call his mom to tell her to teach him some manners…

  5. *sigh* The entire POINT of The Grudge is that it can’t be stopped. Nothing can stop it, nothing can fix it, nothing can make it go away. You walk in that house, you’re dead.

    End of story, no redemption, do not pass go, do not make copy of cursed video tape, do not collect $200.

    That’s what makes it so everlovin’ frightening.

    I do have to admit though that American versions of The Grudge had me completely sleepless. It was like they took everything that scared the crap out of me and put it in one movie. I refuse to even let a copy of the dvd into my house. Ju-on didn’t have that kind of effect, parts of it did, but not the whole. But that could be because I saw it after and already really knew the story.

  6. I love the Grudge movies, even though I spend 95% of the time laughing….horribly inappropriate, yes, but something about them just makes me break down in fits of giggles.

  7. Honestly, I loved both The Grudge and The Grudge 2 and am looking forward to the third one coming out. First of all, I’m a sucker for horror movies to begin with but I also was drawn in by the Tarantino/Soderbergh method they used of mixing up the timeline.
