I am an avid lover of horror films. I wait, patiently, to find a good one that will give me nightmares, or cause me to hurry in the dark from room to room. The Grudge did that for me! That sound she makes, stayed with me for days and days! When I first saw the movie, there was a NIKE commercial running on TV with different athletes, one was a Asian man and the picture was dark, I had to change the channel because it reminded me of the movie! I can sit through almost anything, but this one really got under my skin. You have to watch it alone, and in the dark to get the full extent. And just imagine it happening to you. Truly a good horror flick! And a very well done adaptation for American viewing, I saw the original (unbeatable) but this one came pretty close!
