The franchise initially began in 1998 with the Japanese short film Katasumi and 4444444444 and spawned a film series that included the original four Japanese installments, The CurseThe Curse 2The Grudge and The Grudge 2. After seeing the success these films were garnering overseas and the success of the American version of The Ring, Sony Pictures greenlit a remake of The Grudge with original writer/director Takashi Shimizu returning to direct a script from Stephen Susco and Sarah Michelle Gellar set to star. Though not a critical hit, 2004’s The Grudge was a box office smash and spawned two sequels, as well as this year’s reboot sidequel, which was a modest financial success.
