THE GRUDGE – Review

WHAT\’S IT ABOUT?
Karen (Gellar) moves to Japan to live with her student boyfriend, Doug. She gets work as a carer with an agency.
When a colleague fails to turn up for work, the agency sends Karen to help an elderly woman, in her big spooky house.
It’s spooky for good reason: since the violent deaths of its former residents, everyone who’s been there has died.
Will Karen be able to break the curse?
WHAT\’S IT LIKE?
Letting a foreign director helm his own Hollywood remake doesn’t have a happy precedent: George Sluizer’s Vanishing is a case in point. Now we have another
The difference with this one is that it’s hard to see how such an incoherent mess was ever deemed worthy of a remake
It thinks it’s much scarier than it is, but more shocks come from the violinist dropping his bow than anything else.
The only real scares are rip-offs from better films like Ring and Dark Water.
THE GRUDGE opens November 5 2004
