Ha! You wanna laugh? - This truly demented, little, Japanese, ghost story tells us (with total dead-seriousness) that a house (or dwelling) will automatically become cursed (with a haunting) if someone happens to die there in either a fit of hellish rage or in the despair of great sorrow.

Oh, really!!?? - Well - If this is so, then, can you just imagine how many places (especially hospitals and senior's homes) that would be carrying curses right at this very moment??

Wow! If this was the case, then the total number of cursed places, worldwide, would truly be a staggering number. I'd say there'd probably be a cursed residence in just about every single neighbourhood, from here to eternity, and beyond.

Anyways - With its story moving along at an absolute snail's pace, The Grudge (and its mega-cheap scares) was pretty awful horror, for the most part. I mean, it wasn't even a slightly interesting ghost story, if you ask me.

As it turned out - More than anything else, my main effort while watching The Grudge was to actually stay focused enough in hopes of remaining fully-awake through the blasted thing.
