Movie Quote(s):
  • [from trailer] Karen: The whole time I was in that house I felt something was wrong. What happened there?
  • [from trailer] Karen: There is something evil there.
  • [first lines] Maria: Good morning. Peter? Are you OK? You're up early today.
  • Detective Nakagawa: Three years ago, three of my colleagues were investigating what happened in that house. Two died mysteriously. The third was never found.
  • Emma Williams: [whispering] I just want her to leave me alone!
Movie Trivia:
  • Two slightly different versions of the film were used for test screenings. One was R-rated, while the other was rated PG-13. The PG-13 cut, which had toned down some of the disturbing images, tested better with screeners.
  • A sequel was greenlit on the Monday after the surprise success of the first weekend's box office of more than $39 million.
  • Yuya Ozeki, Takako Fuji, and Takashi Matsuyama all appeared in Ju-on (2002), the Japanese film upon which this film was based, all reprising their roles as the doomed Saeki family.
  • On their way to the graveyard, Karen and Doug pass three schoolgirls on the street - a reference to Izumi and her friends Chiharu and Miyuku from the original Ju-on (2002).
  • According to the DVD Commentaries and Featurettes, the house in The Grudge (2004) was built completely on a sound stage. It was based almost entirely on the house in Ju-on (2002). It was built like a normal house, the 'house set' had two floors so that cuts did not have to be made when a character was walking upstairs. However, the attic was built separately from the house to allow for more room when filming.
