    I took my niece to see "The Grudge" last night. I was holding on to her almost the entire time. I thought it was pretty creepy, but I haven't seen many scary movies to compare it to. I was genuinely scared and I enjoyed it very much. Anyone else see it? Thoughts?

    How old is your niece? My pre-teen daughter asked if we could go see it. I don't do well with scary movies - but she is really keen on scary stuff, so I feel reluctant to take them.

    My neice is 13 and she was very scared but handled it fine. I did have my reservations, but because it was PG-13, I figured it would be alright. She has two preteen brothers and I don't think that I would take them to see it though...

    I've seen the original japanese one - not the remake. I thought it was really good, and the czarina was terrified and had to turn it off. she came back though, curiousity being what it is.

    It's a damned good story and just proves that the Japanese know a thing or two about scaring the shite out of people.

    Check out Tomie (The Girl Who Can't Die) or something like that if you liked the Grudge.

    I just saw it last night and thought it was terrible. I didnt care the least about the characters and was simply bored and disappointed the whole way through. Prolly a good scary flick for the young teenage crown but for someone as old and sophisticated as I (feel free to laugh your ass off here), it was simply terrible.

    I will admit that I jumped in a few spots here and there but only because they HAD to throw in the occasional screaming face in order to get any reaction at all. It seemed like a VERY bad ripoff of the Ring is all (which was an excellent movie BTW).

    P.S. It would have been a much better movie is Sarah Michelle Gellar would have taken her shirt off at least once.

    Any movie that had geller with her shirt off would be a must see for me! unfortunatly this ain't it (nor scooby dooby either I guess!!)

    My son took his girlfriend to see it. He said it wasn't all that good. I used to love scarey movies but they seldom scare me anymore. The closest i've seen lately to a good scarey movie is 'Darkness Falls'. It's a story about the tooth fairy.
