The Grudge

Just back from the cinema. We saw The Grudge, but we kept wanting to call it The Grinch for some reason.

Typical remake of yer Japanese original. All eyes, burps and the undead. For some reason all the characters kept calling Buffy “Karen”. I couldn’t quite figure that one out.

There are some jumpy moments, preceded by the standard wandering-alone-with-no-lights-on, creaky doors and choice selections from the BBC Sound Effects album of inexplicable noises. I have a very low threshold for films, so I enjoyed it, but to be honest it wasn’t that great. We very much enjoyed listening to the teenagers in the row behind us, who seemed genuinely scared. Ah, the youth of today.
