"Ju-On (The Grudge) is one of the most frightening films I've ever seen. Shimizu crafted some of the most unique onscreen scares in his Japanese version. He was relentless in his delivery, leaving you no time to catch your breath." - Sam Raimi.
Let's face it, for those of us brought up on video nasties, Evil Dead director Raimi is something of a hero. For him to come out with a statement like that we've got to listen. Anyway, while he's busy remaking, you can get yourself down to the multiplex and see the original and then you'll be able to say to your mates "oh, haven't you seen the original?" when they're telling you about the remake - like we all did with Ringu!
The Grudge opens at cinemas nationwide on 2nd July.
