Fat children covered in flour just are not that scary.
JU-ON: The Grudge. Ah, where do I start? JU-ON: The Grudge (the game) is very loosely based on the Japanese horror film of the same title. While I couldn’t find much to recommend about the original other than the presence of the lovely Masaki Ito(h), star of numerous J-dramas, word of mouth was apparently good enough to garner a (far superior) Hollywood remake with Sarah Michelle Gellar. Please save this one for your records, as this may be the only time you hear me mentioning a U.S. remake being superior to the original…the sole further exception being the vapid but entertaining Point of No Return over the turgid La Femme Nikita (hell, who would you rather look at, a svelte Bridget Fonda or an emaciated Anne Parillaud?) Unfortunately, however, we are not discussing the merits of said film here, but rather a very sorry excuse for a belated cash-in video game.
