    • Item: The Grudge (PG-13, 2004) movie Location: by: Famous

      A remake of the Japanese thriller, Ju-on: The Grudge, this film does a fairly decent job of weaving supernatural horror with tasteful special effects, and an engaging storyline. I wouldn’t call this


      story terribly scary.

      But the “chill” factor is indeed great.

      I could have done without Sarah Michelle Gellar.

      She’s a little bland of an actress for my taste.

      Perhaps another actress whos is a bit more raw would have worked out ...


      • better.

        At any rate, this story is expertly woven for a horror film.

        I enjoyed the flashback aspect of the plot.

        There are a few believable performances, mainly by the Japanese actors in the film.

        I thought that the

        cinematography was sleek and not too overdone.

        There appears to be a trend in remaking Japanese horror.

        This one was done pretty well.

        But I suspect that if the trend continues, some of the good stories may end up a bit watered down.
