[Blu Ray] Only the hi-def obsessed should double-dip for this one, DVD owners can still sit pretty.

As a pure, light, PG-13 thrill machine, The Grudge is fairly successful. But it is not especially memorable.

Eschewing plot and a linear timeline for a stylish exercise in mood, Shimizu sets the scenes with long silences and chilling images.

The intent of Shimizu's US-produced feature debut is quite clear: do for Japan what Jaws did for swimming.

The Grudge is a decent horror diversion: barely a classic, but still pretty atmospheric and suspenseful in its own right.

Little more than a journey to the end credits.

To add to the tedium, the ever-bland Bill Pullman, who exits rather early, returns via flashbacks to mope around and be generally unimpressive--which best describes this movie as a whole.

Shimizu understands it is the unknown and the unseen that's scariest, resorting to gurgled growls and passing glimpses of greasy-haired demons to illicit shrieks and shouts from theater audiences.

Despite a few effective scares, this new Grudge never really generates the right amount of tension.
