*minor plot spoilage*

It was good alright...for a laugh.  Seriously, I did not stop laughing the entire film.  See, the scary moments in the grudge consisted of a silhouette walking past a door, or a face inside a mirror.  Maybe it would have been scarier if the spirit of kayako was faster.  Maybe if she ran around like a spider and chased the people down as they ran away, or if the cg moments had eyes that looked realistic, then it would have been better.  But still, the plot was rather...thin, and it was wierd that the film takes place in japan, but 3/4 of the characters are americans.  Also, Sarah Michelle Gellar's deadpan acting only served to lessen the tension.  Certainly she acted rather paranoid, but she never had a face of true fear.  The film was actually somewhat good at inspiring tension, but it failed to use that tension and every "jump moment" was completely predictable.  That is ultimately what killed this film for me, the fact that I could predict when and how a scary moment would occur, and be exactly right every time.  That in and of itself made the film hilarious to me, because it only made the style of the film seem silly and it produced a rather unbalanced atmosphere.  The film started to come together towards the end with the "final showdown," but it failed to capitalize on many golden opportunities.  The fact that it was PG-13 and therefore had to be subtly scary instead of graphically was a part of this, but there were many other elements.  Like, the scene where Kayako is crawling down the stairs, that would have been amazing had it been a huge flight of stairs and she raced down it, crawling like a spider.  The slow dragging with the odd twitching with the awkward angle just seemed stupid.  Also, when she was crawling ontop of your man, Sarah, you should have smacked that bitch!  Seriously, the spirit moves agonizingly slow, and all you can do is sit with your back against the wall watching her make the moves?  You are no woman.  Finally, the ending was just weak, the weakest part of the film.  Overall, if you were scared by that film, then you have no constitution, no will, and no sight of mind.  To those who haven't seen it, don't bother unless you think you will find it as humourous as I did.

Same here! I keep turing on my light to see if anyones there. and my brohter is getting annoyed w/ the light getting turned on and off. I was in the bathroom about to take a shower and I felt a cold breeze and I turned and nothing was there and I was like eek! I'm going to take one tomorrow! But I have dark parts in my room and I cant see cause my shutters are still closed so all I have is one wondow w/ the moon light and its still dark. But yeah I hope I dont stay scared for long.

I went to see it yesterday and I was very disappointed. That movie sucked. It sucked alot. It wasn't even scary. It had no plot. It basically just sucked. I hope Saw will be better. :-\

Filippo Inzaghi is da man. Also, Italy is da man. AC Milan is also da man just as equally.

Disappointing -.-

Some people of our soccer team(Not all of them) decided to go to see The Grudge if they won at least once...Both the A team and B team won ^.^
Well anyways I warned them not to see it but they don't believe that I am correct.

I tolf them they should see Saw but they wanted to see the Grudge...I can't wait till I see their disappointed faces Monday ^.^

You could not pay me enough!  But now they're bringing out the original Japanese film that inspired the Grudge.

I tended to see it as a film bashing the Hollywood-style horror films of today, almost like a "Scary Movie" type deal. My mother was screaming through the entire movie, my father was laughing at the fact that he agreed with me about the humor involved, but was completely lost (as usual) as to the plot. I, on the other hand, found it sadly disappointing as far as horror went, but unexpectedly surpurb as far as a comedy went. *shrugs* I guess it depends on your view on life and your tastes...
Thanks to Chaos for the siggy!!!


Well, I don't want the world to see me,
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand.
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am...
