The Grudge (2004) Review:

When thinking about “which movie was the scariest ever?”, The Grudge usually comes in my top 3 (and you are argue/comment on this!). This introduce the greatest thing about this movie…it is truly scary.

Once a movie succeeds at giving you the creep, nothing else really matter. I was totally immersed in the story. Many times I jumped and all along I couldn’t get my eyes out of the movie, thanks to the dark and oppressive atmosphere. The little boy, the noise of the woman…they are absolutely terrifying. Some scenes are really meant to scare you for long (the woman in the bed scene!). As if it wasn’t enough, the movie also has got an interesting storyline!  A great piece of real horror!
