The Grudge

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.

Continuity mistake: When Karen goes into the cupboard upstairs, prior to meeting Toshio, she picks up a book. In one shot she picks it up by the page side, then when it cuts she is holding the spine side. (00:17:40)

Detective Nakagawa: Three years ago, three of my colleagues were investigating what happened in that house. Two died mysteriously. The third was never found.

More quotes from 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.
