The Grudge

Despite the PG-13 rating I think this movie looks like it might be good. What do you think?

I don't think its a Ringu remake, but it is a remake of a Japanese movie. But Sarah Michelle Gellar in a shower scene is a good reason for me to watch it.

It's technically a remake, but the script isn't exactly the same as the Japanese version.

gus just ordered me the original grudge 1 and 2 for my christmas. i totally do not want to see the remake, i think it is gonna be a load of goddamn bollocks.

i have all the original ring films, and i think the remake is absolutly shite compared to the original.

i guess im just a original kinda gal.

plus, i don't particulary think much of sarah-gellars acting.
im also collecting the ring books, i've already read the first one, i just need to hurry my ass to the book shop and buy the second part. not sure when the third one is out over here though.

I thought The Ring was much better than Ringu (the original). Only the truly 1337 like all originals, I know, but the remake was soooooo much more intense. And I'm going to see the grudge because I have no reason to not see the Grudge, especially if it's a different adaptation, and is directed by the same guy who did the originals.

i just think that the original was a much better story, i thought there was a whole lot more feeling to it. there just seemed to be more depth to the characters for me personally. although i still dont understand how anybody found either version scary.

I've seen bits of Ju-On, the Jap grudge... Seems that Japanese horror are very good at getting us scared at what they don't actually show, and have a lot of holes in the plots. I liked the American Ring better though, if only becaues it had a more complete story.

There's a freaky jap movie about a magician who performs a magic trick where his twin daughers (contortionists) squeeze into these tiny boxes and then vanish. One sis hates the other and so when they practice the trick, she locks the box and sets it on fire. Very creepy.

theres a film called suicide circle that i have been dying to see, its about a group of people who commit mass suicide, and at every body they find a white bag. it is ment to be seriously gory and bizarre. right up my street.

i heard of that....i also wanna see "The Vortex" (Uzumaki....i think is the Jap title).....and i agree, Jap films are very good at spookin' peeps, but their plots do lack and thatz where American Films dominate.....Japs haven't really seemed to grasp the whole "letz change scenes, or do flashbacks" either yet.......case in point is "Ichi The Killer" and "Odishon"......they just jump too much.....

but yes, Ringu is far superior to the Ring....it explained a lot more

the japanese original was fucking horrible. it was just really inexcusably bad. there were so many moments that could have been much creepier, but no, no, they had to dick it all up.

but if they're done right they can. I was watching that new show, 'Lost' a couple weeks back, and I was close to scared. Very into it anyway, hanging on the moment. It was cool. When does that EVER happen with tv.

Drugstore turned me onto 'A Tale of Two Sisters' that is a fuckin awesome Asian horror film. I still haven't watched the 'Ju-on' films, but as I said before I'll be getting them soon.

As far a 'The Ring' vs 'Ringu' I liked both of them. 'The Ring' was cinematically very well done, and 'Ringu' gave a much better version of the story. I thought that both were creepy, No movies are scary.

As for 'The Grudge' I agree with Spikess that Sarah M. Geller can't act for shit, so I am very sceptical for how this one'll turn out.
