Movie: The Grudge

A few days ago I was in the mood for a really scary movie. Now, let me paraphrase this and specify exactly what i mean.

Not a lot of blood. No splatterfest. No march of the undead feasting…

I like horror movies more subtle, i am more scared by imagining what might have happened, compared to seeing somebody get skinned alive.

The Grudge, an american remake of an all japanese movie, remade by the original director, did it for me. It was scary, the acting was ok (hey, it’s a horror movie, not an Oscar winning Drama with Anthony Hopkins), and the effects were good. The movie got below average scores in IMDB, which is beyond me to explain, but this might be genre specific (Event Horizon scored as well, and that is one of the worst movies I have ever seen :)).
