The Grudge

The woman was killed by her husband for being in love with Peter. The husband then killed their son, and then hung himself. Peter killed himself because he realized this and saw the dead bodies. Karen returns to the house to save Doug, but the woman kills Doug and goes to kill Karen. Karen knocks over the gas cans and lights the house on fire. At the hospital, the police bring Karen to ID the body of Doug. One of the police mention that they were able to save the house, and although Karen somehow survived the fire, she is visited by the woman one last time. We can assume that the woman kills Karen, because since the house is still standing the curse remained.

Revealing mistake: When the detectives were listening to the message on the answering machine, we heard it say the date was Thursday and states a time the message was left. When the camera shows the answering machine, you can see the display blinking between 1 (the current message) and CL (which indicates the time and date have not yet been set).

Trivia: The Saeki family, the ghost family that haunts and terrorizes everyone who enter their home, are no strangers to the Grudge franchise. They played the same characters in the movie Ju-On, the Japanese version of The Grudge.

Question: How exactly does the father kill the wife? I noticed when she comes down the stairs she comes out of a bloody bag. So how is she killed?

Answer: Well, in the Japanese original (Ju-On: The Grudge), it shows that Takeo, the father, killed his wife by shoving a knife down her throat or something similar to that. When he was killing her, she tried to scream, except her scream came out all messed up (because the knife hit the vocal chords), which explains the horrible croaking noise. There's no doubt about it that it's the way she was killed in this version.

Answer: Another website states that after pushing her down, Kayako sprained her ankle and crawled down the stairs, only to realise Takeo was slowly following her from behind watching her suffer. He then snapped her neck, but she was still alive and could only make the croaking noise. It is also implied that he stabbed her multiple times afterwards, which could explain the bloody corpse.
