The Grudge short films on Yahoo

Yahoo has a series of short films based on Takashi Shimizu's The Grudge 2 that hits theatres in a few weeks. The clips are hosted by Sam Rami, though he acts a little stiff.

Like almost all the remakes of Japanese horror movies, I liked the first version of The Grudge, JU-ON more. However, the remake was not without it few merits, Takashi Shimizu and Sarah Michelle Gellar among them.


I wasn't excited about the sequel until I saw that they were going to kill off Gellar's character and move the story further from there. This is a gutsy move that happens in Japanese horror franchises all the time, but Hollywood never sacrifices names for story.
