The original Japanese version was the scariest movie, as I couldn't go sleep that night. The image of those white face haunted me that night. Story is simple, and as a whole movie, it wasn't that bad. It's the sound effect & the image of those scenes... Friend forwarded me this link, and immediately after I realized what it was, I closed it. <http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/thegrudge/site/flash/> Part 2 is already available in DVD in Japan. I'm debating whether I want to watch it or not. Let me know if you liked US version. The director is the same, so if you have a chance, watch the original, too.
