    I’ve seen it already so here are my impressions:

    I’m a huge fan of the four Japanese Ju-on films and thought the two made-for-TV entries were the best. The American films were just kind of middle of the road, been there done that, fare. It almost felt as if Shimizu had started repeating himself with our remakes. The series really needed some new blood and Wilkins brought that.

    The biggest enemy here was the script. The plot was serviceable but some of the dialogue was a little on the stilted side. Also the actor playing Toshio seemed a bit too old, and the near-kabuki white make-up was a little too much as at times it was a tad on the distracting side.

    However, other than that I had a good time. Wilkins got the characters of Toshio and Kayako and knew how to use them. The lighting and the sound mix was spot on and the addition of some gore was appreciated.

    In short — Grudge 3 is better than the American part 2, and nearly on par with the first American flick.

    I wouldn’t put money on that hope. I’m hearing it’s pretty awful.

  • The Unknown Murderer

    Grudge 3. From the director of Splinter, starring Shawnee Smith.

    I didn’t see the second American film, but considering the above, I’m in.

    I’m not gonna bother with the continuing adventures of Catwoman and Smurfboy (TM) but I’ll grant that this sequel has pretty good chances of being better than the last couple entries in the endless saga, simply because it doesn’t have ultra-hack (at least as far as milking his own “franchise” is concerned) Takashi Shimizu at the helm.
