The Grudge Review

Synopsis:

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 Grudge is a superb and twisted movie. The Japanese believe that if there is a lot of anger and rage at the time of death, the spirit that died curses the establishment that it died. The death is then repeated on the future living inhabitants/visitors thus continuing the cycle. I have seen a lot of horror movies, and this is one of the few that managed to freak me out. The spirits look, so jaw-dropping frightening. The ending is great as well where you start figuring out what was the cause of the horrible murder that occurred here.
