The Grudge

--Reviewed by Lindy Loo

Saw The Grudge this weekend. Here's what I thunk.

Plotline: Sad and washed up. Sarah Michelle Gellar goes to work temporarily as a nurse for an old woman who lives in what turns out to be a haunted house. The house is haunted by a young Asian boy and his mother who slowly pick off people who come into contact with them.

Scariness factor: Like watching your grandma hobble towards you with a Casper mask on. There wasn't a real scary moment in the whole film which was extremely disappointing. They showed too much of the beings that were haunting the place--it would've best been left to the viewer's imagination. And never was I nervously sitting on the edge of my seat.

Originality: Blatant Rip-off of both The Eye (elevator scenes and creepy Asian child) and The Ring (girl with long hair hanging over face lurching towards camera).

Other High Points: None. (Except maybe for the creepy noise that accompanies the ghosts and only because it's easy to imitate and annoy people with.)

Other Complaints: Sarah Michelle Gellar does a shower scene and we don't get to see boobage. What kinda lousy horror movie IS this?

Grade: D

"Jack Frost" also had a shower scene with no actual nudity.

Does she even have boobs to show? She's one of those little bird skinny actresses.

How many movies has SMG been in where she could've shown boobage and hasn't? A ton. She's almost as bad as Jennifer Love Hewitt in that regard.
