From filmmaker Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, Army of Darkness) and acclaimed Japanese director Takashi Shimizu comes a terrifying tale of horror in the tradition of The Ring and 28 Days Later. Sarah Michelle Gellar (TV's Buffy The Vampire Slayer ) stars as an American nurse who has come to work in Tokyo. Following a series of horrifying and mysterious deaths, she encounters the vengeful supernatural spirit that possesses its victims, claims their souls, then passes its curse to another person in a spreading chain of horror. Now, she must find a way to break this supernatural spell or become the next victim of an ancient evil that never dies, but forever lives to kill.

Grisly ghost story has lots of violence, scares.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Grudge is a 2004 horror movie about a house possessed by the ghosts of those killed inside it. There's horror imagery galore in this one -- enough to give sensitive viewers of any age nightmares. A murder-suicide is shown in a flashback scene in which a man drowns his son in a tub and murders his wife before hanging himself. Bodies are found in an attic. A broken lower jaw is found on the floor. However, the scariness should be counterbalanced by the clearly forced plot points in the movie: the kind so prevalent in cheesier horror movies best exemplified by that audience member in the theater who yells, "Just leave the haunted house!" Some of the characters smoke cigarettes.
