SMG as Karen Davis is fantastic in this. This and Ju-On: The Curse are probably my two favorite Ju-On/Grudge movies. The extended Directors Cut is the definitive version of the film to watch, the theatrical cut can leave to some questions. Definitely worth a watch during Halloween :D

Remaking a remake seems a little pointless, and if you have seen the original, this is inferior in pretty much every way. The script has some terrible dialogue and the additional CGI enhancements only make the film less creepy, not more. The film attempts to create a more streamlined connected plot to ensure that Gellar can remain the central protagonist throughout and spends far too much time trying to explain ever little aspect of the mystery, often repeating them in case the audience missed it the first time. When the film does work however, it is in reworking the very effective creepy moments that made the original stand out from the glut of similarly themed Japanese horror films that followed Ringu. But for those familiar with the genre, all these moments do is serve to remind how pointless the film is. For viewers who simply can't abide subtitles, this is worth a watch despite the script. For everyone else, check out the far better Ju-On (2002)!
