The Grudge 
The Grudge
2/4 stars

It was an okay horror film. I felt like Sarah Michelle Gellar could've done more. When she was sad or scared, I felt like I was watching the extremely depressing (in a good way) Season Six of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." I think this movie could've been scarier if they did not have as many choppy scenes. For a horror film, there's a lot of characters and the ghosts or the grudge aren't as menacing as they should have been. The special effects are mediocre at best. The sound effects are laughable more than half of the time. There were many instances when I thought of "The Ring" especially when one of the ghosts would crawl down the stairs. That's the problem with Japanese horror film adaptations: once one becomes successful and popular, others try to imitate it instead of striving to take the genre to the next level. Overall, this was a disappointment.
