I must of seen a thousand 'scary' movies and it has to be said that only about 2 or 3 percent of them were actually scary. This is one of those rare releases. It will make you jump, and it will probably dissuade you from going downstairs in the dark for a late night cup of cocoa!
The cast play out the film well, but as with most horrors, there's little chance of any oscars being thrown their way. Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy, IKWYD Last Summer, Scooby Doo) plays Karen, an exchange student who volunteers at a care centre. She gets assigned to a patient whose normal carer has not turned up for work that day. Once she gets to the house of the patient she finds the patient collapsed on the floor, with the place looking a tip. Her life will never be the same again! Ted Raimi (whose been in everything from Evil Dead to Candyman to Wishmaster to the Spiderman movies) plays a rather geeky manager, he appears to be the manager of the care center where Karen works. He doesn't add much to this movie and it seems as though he was an afterthought in the writer or directors mind...he's not so convincing as the other characters which include Jason Behr (from the TV series 'Roswell') as Karen's boyfriend Doug, and William Mapother (Minority Report, Vanilla Sky, Swordfish, Mission Impossible II) as Matthew Williams.
The whole movie shifts about in time, we start at one point, then at the end of that scene, we switch to a few days earlier, then we switch to another time, then another time...Read more ›
Karen (Sarah Michelle Gellar- Buffy, Scooby-Doo), an american nurse living and working in Tokyo is exposed to a supernatural curse, a one that locks a person in a powerful rage before claiming their life and spreading to another victim!
I would give this film 5 stars because of the scary effectiveness and sound effects with the Grudge's voice. Some of you may agree with me that this is the best thriller since 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' and 'Scream Trilogy'. Thankyou for reading this. Make sure you like scary movies and dont get nightmares (definetly) or you will not be going to sleep for a while!
Sarah Michell Gellar once again appears on the big screen in a role different from the characters she has played in the past. She stars as a foreign social working student along with her boyfriend played by Jason Behr. When she covers for a friend who has not turned up for work, she visits a house in Tokyo. There she meets an old woman who is nearly comatose, and on further investigation she sees that the house is haunted and cursed, and she is attacked. We are then shown small episodes involving the past occupants of the house and see that anyone who lives there inevitably is killed by the terrifying plague inside the house. As the story goes on the reason for the curse is explained, and Karen (Gellar) tries to save herself.
Ju-On already ranks as one of the scariest movies ever made, and The Grudge is a worthy attempt which has some pluses and minuses over the original. The story is certainly easier to follow and more is explained, although it refuses to be told in a linear fashion. This adds to the uneasiness we feel while watching it, but is less confusing than the previous version. The scene here involving the ghost chasing one victim around an office building is better than the original, though the subsequent 'bed' moment is not as good.Read more ›
After i saw the Ring, Iwatched the Japanese version as someone told me it really frightened them. It didnt. However, I wont be venturing into Blockbuster to rent out the original of this. Ever.

Terrible remake of the Japanese classic, so so boring which a horror should not be.
Every scare you can see coming, the acting is non existant, and it makes no sense.
Scared the life out of me so it was fantastic!!! The only slight flaw is that it stops in the first few minute but its not a huge problem.Published 8 months ago by sarah cornwall
