THIS horror flick does a really poor job of trying to conceal the fact that it's a poor man's version of The Ring.

An American nurse (Sarah Michelle Gellar) finds herself caught up in a series of gruesome, unexplained murders while on work experience in Tokyo.

And the people who aren't lucky enough to die turn into glassy-eyed, dribbling vegetables.

Apparently there is an unwritten rule with horror films at the moment that they must include a creepy Japanese ghost woman or child with long hair and appalling eye make-up and The Grudge is no exception.

While there are a number of moments which will put you slightly on edge, this is by no means terrifying and doesn't cover any territory which has not been visited countless times before.

The acting is adequate throughout but you cannot help but feel the script and plot gave the actors absolutely nothing to really get their teeth into.
