    Glad you found it finally;) The sequel is more of the same but loses it's impact somewhat:( Still damn fine compared to the derge coming across the pond at the moment though.
    If you enjoyed Ju-On you might want to try:-

    Dark Water
    The Eye
    Audition
    A Tale Of two sisters
    Uzumaki


    All superb asian horrors imo:)

    The Grudge and Ju-ON have both been resoundly slated, i'm not so sure I will pay £5 for something that has received such a hammering.

    I thought the original Asian version JU-ON was very good although probably not everyones cup of tea. I'll probably rent the remake to see how much it has been watered down by hollywood before purchasing:(

    I've not seen the Yank version but the Asian original is well worth a look anyhow imo. Since the Yanks seem to be ruunning out of original ideas they appear to be raping the asian market and releasing higher budget inferior remakes like the ring. The Hollywood remake of the ring was OK but not a patch on the original and I'm not too hopefull myself for the grudge but I hope I'm wrong. :thumbsdow

    Maybe someone who's seen the Yank version can fill us in :)

    We went to see the Grudge a while back and were really dissappointed. I am a big fan of the yank "Ring". I think it was really well done, and to be honest, from what I have seen of Japanese ver, a lot better too.

    The Grudge uses LOTS of the same ideas but does nothing as well. Have you seen "The Ring" Seany ?

    We also went to see Bad Santa and Bridget. Scary to say, but Bridget was the best of them. I was looking forward to Santa, but the joke wore a bit thin pretty quick. Surprised it gets such good reviews

    I've seen the japanese version and he sequels. I liked the American version better to be honest. Maybe i'm missing something, but the faces pulled in the japanese version made me burst out laughing:laugh:

    The Yank version is not a great movie in itself, but i thought it was better then the original version

    Subjective of course
