Detective Muldoon (Andrea Riseborough) is a single mother who has not yet got over the loss of her recently deceased husband. In her job as a policewoman, she distracts herself with an old case that seems to be still making waves. It is about various murders that all took place in the same house. But her new partner, who was once involved in the investigation, doesn’t want to have anything to do with it for personal reasons.
In recent years, American genre cinema, with some exceptions, does not present new films and there is an abuse of new versions or unnecessary continuations and even spin-offs. This time we get the third job as director of Nicolas Pesce whose two previous works, “The eyes of my mother (2016)” and “Piercing (2018)”, had their success in genre film festivals around the world. The project that has part of production by Sam Raimi, and with a script written by the director himself, is a new version of the film “The curse (2002)” directed by Takashi Shimizu in 2002, and that without being a great film at less was decent, and in this case the director has decided to make some important change, since what he has taken from the Japanese genre film is the central idea.
The film The Grudge lacks the necessary attractions so that, at least the adolescent public is entertained, it works as an entertainment cinema, since it does not have the necessary rhythm to maintain the tension, and it takes time to start. The best moments come in the second part, once all the characters have been introduced, but in general it becomes quite heavy despite the fact that it does not last long. The cast is not bad, where two actresses stand out, Andrea Riseborough and Lin Shaye, who stand out above the rest. But everything that happens is predictable, and at least there is an interest in the originality of the presentation of several parallel stories, and also the work of the sound technicians and the work of the editor is not bad. A disappointing film, which does not add anything new to the genre, and which can have its audience, especially fans of the genre.
