24. The Grudge
Any horror franchise that runs out of steam inevitably gets rebooted eventually, and The Grudge’s muddled mythology saw it acting as a sidequel to the first three Americanized movies.
The concept was already well past the sell-by date, and director Nicolas Pesce brought absolutely nothing new or of note to a rote tale of standard jump scares and things that go bump in the night.
One thing The Grudge does have going for it is a rare reliance on practical effects, but that was far from enough to elevate the finished product to anything above sheer tedium.
