Good to see old college friends again. Went to see Takashi Shimizu’s The Grudge, a remake of the Japanese horror film Ju-on, and let me just say that it fails to please. While the film is certainly creepy, its repetitive events, lack of character development, and twisted storyline make this work more of a headache to watch than anything else. The best part of the movie is, sadly, the credits. Die hard connoisseurs of the horror genre might enjoy this film, but if you aren’t in this category, I recommend that you stay far, far away.
