* NeverendingTerror: This is one of the scariest parts of the eponymous grudge curse. Once the ghost/demon is after you, there is no getting away from it. Also, it will come for you ''anywhere''. It doesn't care how locked up you are or how many other people are nearby.

''The Grudge'' is an American horror film series consisting of 3 films. Its first installment was the 2004 American remake of the Japanese film ''{{Juon}}: The Grudge'', with added elements from ''{{Juon}}: The Curse''. The film was released in North America on October 22, 2004 by Columbia Pictures, and is directed by TakashiShimizu (director of the original series) while Creator/SamRaimi produced and Stephen Susco scripted. In the same tradition as the original series, the plot of the film is told through a [[AnachronicOrder non-linear sequence of events]] and includes several intersecting subplots. The film has spawned two sequels: ''The Grudge 2'' (which was released on October 13, 2006) and ''The Grudge 3'' (released direct-to-DVD on May 12, 2009, after having the original release date pushed back), this time directed by Toby Wilkins with Shimizu as executive producer. Also, a reboot is planned (with Sam Raimi producing).
