A detective investigates a murder scene that has a connection to a case that her new partner handled in the past. The killings occurred in a haunted house that passes on a ghostly curse to those who dare enter it. Soon, the curse spreads to a terminally ill woman and her husband, and another unsuspecting couple who were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The Grudge (2020)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

6 / 10
I concede that the movie is not good, however, I don't think it was terrible. It's main problems are that it's like every other supernatural movie we've had in the past decade all rounded into a mediocre ball and I think at this point people are starting to get tired of it. But I could compare it to any other mediocre scary ghost type film from the past decade and consider it to be no worse than the others.

Some people insist that this movie is a sequel but I feel it's best considered a reboot that references basic storytelling from earlier films without truly being linked to one another... in other words, I still feel it's more of a remake, or essentially just cashing in on the name of the franchise as opposed to being a continuation of anything released before it. One other thing I'd like to mention is that it has a fairly strong reliance on jump scares as opposed to having a slower, more creepier vibe like the earlier films. Though, the one part that I did feel was moderately creepy was the very last scene but that would require enduring the mediocrity of everything that comes before it.

If The Grudge (2020) had been made well over a decade earlier, I think it may not have been slammed as hard as it is right now. I certainly don't recommend the film but, as I said earlier, I think the blood has been sucked dry out of supernatural horror and it's time for a different horror sub-genre to take the reigns, at least for a while.
