I've got a grudge against them making another movie!

Ajumma loves Asian horror. The Japanese film Ju-On and American remake The Grudge made me scream out loud and jump a foot. I would watch them with the lights on while vacuuming and still feel disturbed by vengeful, twitchy Kayako. The Grudge 2, however, is one of lamest horror movies ever made. It's hard to believe that Takashi Shimizu is behind the camera on both films. He should have taken cues from the Pang brothers who directed the frightening film, The Eye, and the equally creepy sequel, The Eye 2. Hopefully The Grudge 3 director Toby Wilkins will take the story back to its original scary roots, but that doesn't appear to be the case.
