Not to say that Takashi Shimizu had a special invention and ingenuity, from what his early career of the Director and screenwriter not there was much diversity and brilliant artistic flares, and the he has managed to become one of the most intriguing masters of horror come from the land of the Rising Sun. After watching the successes of colleagues conquered the screens, along with "Call" "Dark waters," Shimizu decided that he is also worth a look at the mystical folklore of Japan, to whom a special place is occupied by the vengeful ghosts that are sent to the light is not on their own. After examining a lot of evidence describing the actual meeting of people with restless souls, and various scary stories, rooted deep into centuries, Shimizu started writing the script, according to which subsequently made a film known as "Curse." The story of shattered expectations, broken hearts and cold, piercing revenge was so popular among the Japanese audience that subsequently, the producers are forced Shimizu to build on the basis of the "Curse" a full-fledged franchise, in which the number of continuation was normalized solely cash charges. And as "the Curse" became a phenomenon myself Home even began to penetrate into other countries of the world, Hollywood producers decided that them that would any began to adapt the alluring narrative under Western realities, but this in the head of the process of Takashi Shimizu, which is known as no one else knew as running it horror what they need to do in the future. After successful negotiations with the Director lighted up idea to make a copy of "the Curse," Sam Raimi gave him all the tools and not even was opposed to the filming process took place in Japan, that the story is not have lost exotic Oriental flavor. And contrary to the claims of some skeptics about that the remake is not a priori can be better than the original "Curse" of 2004 proved to be quite capable and frightened by his plot twists and turns a considerable number of affected viewers, who were expecting a sequel that came out from the open end of the film.

Not having the right to force viewers to wait longer than necessary, Raimi and Shimizu began to immediately work on the sequel to the remake, adding in the story is much more characters and locations, with an emphasis on a lot of adventures no. what the unfortunate inhabitants of the apartment buildings in Chicago, which is not have been fortunate to go to contact person had the imprudence to enter into the house Kayako from which curse must not will go away ever. However, despite the that the second film collaboration Shimizu Raimi was scary, interesting and even unpredictable, the audience does not hastened to bestow its attention, causing the box office of the tape was in times less than that expected. And despite that "the grudge 2" still off in rental made a profit on home video, Raimi and Shimizu decided that they enough two films, then went out restarted the franchise to other projects. But until the curse of Kayako was still alive, other producers do not going to abandon the possibilities are still one continuation and decided on the third film of the series, which was destined to go to bypass the large screens directly on the video, what with the previous film series still not there. Critical reducing production costs came to replace Raimi and Shimizu leaders in significantly lowered artistic standards paintings, simultaneously inviting in the chair of Director Toby Wilkins, the most famous work which was modest a fantastic horror film "Splinter". And while "the grudge 3" was not so disastrous as you'd think it still unable to compare with previous installments, being quite palatable, but no more crafts, of which long memory is not exactly left.

Himself the film is set some time after the family of the unfortunate boy Jake Kimble (Matthew knight) died from the hands of the horrible ghosts Kayako and Toshio, who are not may contain no distance and obstacles. Being in a psychiatric hospital under the supervision of Dr. Sullivan (Shawnee Smith), Jake so not failed to recover from occurred he was very clear that the ghosts still have not completed their bloody campaign and soon in the city will be the next victim of the curse. Predicted this and the sister of ill-fated Kayako, Naoko (Amy Ikehata), decided yet have the opportunity to do something in Chicago to settle it in. if there were unexplained murders. Coming to contact with Lisa (Joanna Breddi), it older brother max (Gil McKinney), and also sister rose (Judy Hobson), Naoko tries to do everything you need to appease a vengeful spirit Kayako, and with her struggles against the curse also Dr. Sullivan, which in spite of desperately resisting the voice of reason has to take the fact that the ghosts are really exist I could take in his dark world the souls of the living.

Not going to invent in the absence of Raimi and Shimizu's something in fact, the original and high-spirited, able to turn our perceptions about and justify the very presence of trikvela in space, the creators of returning to the old methods that compunction selling the audience that it so long ago bought. But unlike the past films with enough funding and ingenuity honored authors, "the grudge 3" is only a faint copy of what did Shimizu and Raimi. The film desperately we could to captivate, even when that tell us about some previously unknown aspects of the chaotic life embittered Kayako. All these moments are woven artificial and not have the desired effect in history, which the audience for the most part no business. On for most of the duration we have to watch frankly the passive actions of the group of Central characters, and to the naked eye that they, in fact, not much to do that occurs in the set. And even Shawnee Smith, famous in the first in the role of Amanda from the film series "Saw", not have managed to surprise their fans anything worthwhile, and only a missing eye said learned of the script replica, allow somehow to bring the action to unbearably long expected end.

However, you must admit that in spite of all that the mediocrity that is observed by us on the screen, "the grudge 3" is still able to cause a mild fear, so as some scenes set in fact correctly and are imagine the tension that so you have any horror. It is a pity that the Director is overly rarely go to working methods of the franchise, and the impression is that he did not have consulted for about this by Takashi Shimizu, who still stole a look at the set, in order to verify that does his child in the absence of the master in active work on project.

In the end I want to say that "the grudge 3" was only a pale copy of its predecessors and nothing truly significant to teach us not condition.

It would seem, on first glance, that after a great first part and not too good the second, third do not should deserve no attention. Actually I myself thought so until I saw a trailer for the film. I admit, he not me much impressed, but I wouldn too lazy to watch the third series because as any way, a lover of parrots...

And that you think, scared? I'm not so I think Yes, the film continues the tradition of the first two parts, but such a cool effect, contrast first, alas do not produce. And it's not that not able to come up with something new and truly frightening, they really are trying to come up with, even if not the new chips, it old, but with its charm (getting out the Ghost of the pattern, refers to the remake "the ring", in which, as far as I remember, the Ghost girls were out of TV...). To say that the movie was completely incompetent not turns, after all he is good, not enough to overshadow all movies Ghost, but I think it turned out along with some of them and even better.

Pleased that the third part continues the operation of the second picture, immediately after the credits we see the hero of the previous part. And even if I remember correctly, all events occurring in the same Inn in second. Such a connection is, on my opinion, went to the movie only if the third series were separated and would not communication with at least one of the previous, we could see a completely different film, with different story, which certainly would have been a worse. A huge drawback I think the ending, and so, do not paying attention to other minor tweaks, it is possible to say that before us is a good conclusion of the trilogy.

That's something, but having a low budget can be seen literally in every frame. The third part is can not boast any ghosts in fully. Computer motion effect those phantoms looks really painful implausible chtoli, and if the first part of the eyes could not tear away from scary moving figure of the Ghost, then she is a laugh though and quite nervous... Yeah and fully, in some moments, the Ghost looks like a computer insert, which makes it less interesting.

Of the actors one notable kind of not been, if not to consider bonus as Shawnee Smith (who remember all the role of Amanda from "Saw"), here she is a doctor of the psychiatric hospital, played pretty well, but as seen, the film is not for her.

Of course, in light of the recent "Mirrors" and"Phantoms", "the grudge 3" looks a bit dull and the number with no fear higher and even is not up to theatrical paintings. But is as time and there are one of the advantages of this part, because for a film intended for the DVD is very high quality and noteworthy movie.

Yes! Impressions of the film the best! All part of the Curse with Japanese actors, worse and much.


First. Waiting. It takes ten minutes from the movie, twenty, thirty, and no faces, only a very badly disguised hand, breaking bones and dragging you under water.

Second. When Kayako kills, on the body of the victim is not have a drop of blood. It is not throwing up his hands, not separates fingers. By the way, the boy in the beginning most of all pleasing to the eye with his acting. And generally, when twelve-year-old boy throws in the walls and the ceiling, twisting under unnatural angles, it is at least strange, and before calling doctors need at least up to rush down to him to save. From the guard's face is like them happens every day. It looks very funny, not believe it.

Third point. the Girl who appeared on the fifteenth minute film does not even though painted in gouache circles under the eyes look healthy and refreshed. She is not suffering from a severe form of depression it is immediately obvious.

Fourth. Here on Toshio to make fun of, so make fun! The impression is that he's fourteen and he smokes, according to voice.

Fifth. Probably the actors would be pleasant to watch if they would actors.

Sixth. Anyone here remind me what the students of the third class differ from the professional make-up artists?

Seventh. that the boy, talk to the main character, the skin unnaturally white even for the dead (also thanks to third-graders) is not cause it's no surprise. In dealing with a psychologist she is not mentioned that. Think of it, really...

But the movie has two main advantages. God, to do I liked the way Kayako, even though the makeup, some kind of shiver passed through my back. The second advantage is the last half hour of the film made it impossible — they played everything else, and caused me a fraction of the enthusiasm.

The image created by the Director in the first part has caused immense terror. I month not been able to sleep! I will forever remain a fan of the Japanese versions of "Curses" and I'll watch for the sake of fear, not to listen to "the waters" of human relationships.

So believe — a minus nine points for my hurt feelings, plus six points for Kayako and ending together.
