DVD: The Grudge 3 (15)

Click to follow

This straight-to-DVD sequel sees a brother and two sisters try to continue their lives after the apparent murder-suicide of a family in the Chicago apartment block they manage.

But the building is haemorrhaging spooked tenants; another is committed to a psychiatric hospital and then inexplicably mauled to death. To make matters worse, a creature is marauding through the building, emitting spine-chilling screams and stuffing the eye sockets of its victims with black hair. Nice. The characters' response to the threat is too little, too late, even when a mysterious Japanese tenant claims to be able to stop the curse. Schlock horror, and a disappointing conclusion to an initially promising series.
