This is what I wrote to some friends earlier:

HOLY CRAP, The Grudge is, honest to God, one of the scariest films I've
ever seen! I am either getting very soft in my old age, or Sam Raimi
and Ghost Pictures did a KICK A** job! (Can't wait for Boogeyman!)

I was very scared sitting in the dark theater and wished I had someone,
anyone, sitting next to me (except the protagonist in Grudge. I saw the
movie by myself.) I swear, there were many many jump scenes that were
NOT expected! I felt foolish but my nerves did not care! I was on edge
the entire movie, from the opening credits, and the music was
fantastically scary. I keep thinking of that sound, though, and I DO

I actually gasped aloud a few times, and cried, "oh" at one scene!! Oh,
yeah, I even half-covered my eyes a few times! Word to the wise,
though: I thought some of the scenes were a little psychotic. My DH
hated Event Horizon and thought whoever wrote it was sick and psycho,
but I don't remember the movie so can't compare.

I can't say I "enjoyed" this movie b/c I was terrified, but it was very
very good and scary. The ending scene, too...whoa! For being a
32-year-old-mommy, I think I may have nightmares from this movie,
especially because of that sound. Please get out of my head ;)

In summary, this is not a slasher flick like I grew up with (Jason,
Freddy). This is a most-of-the-time spooky movie. Perfect for

Two great trailers for this movie were Boogeyman and The Ring 2!!
