But low on plot. That's how I would describe "The Grudge". Like "The Ring" before it, "The Grudge" is an Americanized version of a highly successful Japanese Horror flick. (Has Hollywood no original horror script-writers left?) Anyway, "The Grudge" is okay. Not great, but certainly not terrible. The characterisation is weak, with little or no explanation as to the whys and wherefores of the plot. A house "replays" events?? Please. Tell us something we don't know. Where the film scores is the score, (see what I did there?) the soundtrack is integral to the plot, in fact it could be called a secondary character. The acting is above average with TV's Buffy and "Roswell's" Jason Behr putting in good performances. (with what little material they have to work with) The Japanese contingent are universally good and Bill Pullmann is surprisingly heavy in a smallish role. While "The Grudge" won't be winning any awards any time soon, it is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
