THE GRUDGE Snags $11.3M Opening Weekend… and F Cinemascore

Producer Sam Raimi (Crawl) and director Nicolas Pesce’s remake of The Grudge crawled into a theater near you this past weekend. And today we’ve learned that the film scored $11.3M opening weekend … and a horrific F Cinemascore grade from audiences. Ouch.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, it only scored a mere 17% over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Dull and derivative, the rebooted Grudge wastes a talented cast and filmmaker on watered-down scares that may leave viewers nursing grievances of their own.
