The Grudge (2004)

An American nurse living and working in Tokyo is exposed to a mysterious supernatural curse, one that locks a person in a powerful rage before claiming their life and spreading to another victim.

The Japanese version was decent, but this is a weaker copy. The major scares have been replicated, and a lot of the tension and jumps have been successfully retained, but the film as a whole is very Americanised and glossy, which hurts the immersion. The screenplay is also confusing and parts don't make sense.

Meh. Spectacularly banal plot.

Much more straight forward than the original and it is better for it.
