The Grudge

The Grudge
When Emma’s nurse, Yoko, goes missing, young American nurse, Karen Davis, who is living in Tokyo, takes over the job of caring for the woman in her strange home. But when Karen realizes that the house is cursed and those who cross its threshold eventually meet a gruesome death, she becomes determined to break the vengeful curse before she becomes its next victim. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Grudge”.

∙ When Yoko arrives home, she’s talking and a blue shirt can be seen over a lampshade in the background. At first, the shirt appears to be mostly covering the lampshade. But in the next view, the shirt’s position has changed and it appears that only the sleeve is tossed over the lampshade.

∙ Yoko ventures into the attic. The sliding door that leads to the attic is more than half way open when Yoko takes a look. But in the next view, once Yoko has been pulled in, the door is less than half open.

∙ When Karen decides to venture into the closet, she tears the tape off the closet door, opens it and sees a book on the bottom. When she first picks up the book, Karen is holding it by the side where it would open. In the very next view, she’s holding the book by its spine.

∙ Susan calls and leaves a message on the answering machine. The first time the message is heard, Katie is listening and the message originally says “You can try my cell or at home later. Just want to make sure mom’s OK.” Susan also mentions she’ll call later. But later in the movie, when the police listen to the message, it’s different. The message now says something along the lines of “Just a little worried about mom. Just want to make sure she’s OK. Call me when you can.”

“The Grudge” (2004) stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jason Behr, KaDee Strickland, Grace Zabriskie and Bill Pullman. It runs 92 minutes and is rated PG-13 for mature thematic material, disturbing images/terror/violence, and some sensuality.
