Trivia

Production problems

The film has been in development hell since 2013. Adam Green, director of 'Hatchet', was originally slated to direct before he dropped out to focus on adapting the novel 'Killer Pizza' for a film.

The Grudge all over the world

Nicholas Pesce has said that if he manages to make sequels, he would like to see the curse spread to other parts of the world like Australia, Europe and Africa.

4 means bad luck

The number of the house in which the film is developed is 44, a reference to the original short film Ju-on 4444444444 (1998) and from which the film came out with the same name in 2002. 4 is also a number of bad luck in Japanese culture because that figure in Japanese is specific a homophone for the name of the character of Shi, which means death.
