Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar - ’The Grudge’ Movie - Msnbc.com Details

Thursday 7 October 2004, by Webmaster

Starring: Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jason Behr, Clea DuVall, William Mapother, Kadee Strickland, Bill Pullman

Director: Takashi Shimizu

The story: Sarah Michelle Gellar stars as a nurse living in Tokyo who, when she goes to check on a creepy house, is exposed to a curse that comes as a result of people dying in a rage. The film is a remake of the ultra-creepy 2003 Japanese film, “Ju-on.”

The buzz: Shimizu directed the original film, so the action should stay just as violent as it was in “Ju-on.” Japanese horror films tend to be a lot less straightforward than those made here, which makes them a lot more surreal and frankly a lot more fun. This seems like a good career move for Gellar, who finally gets a chance to use some of her “Buffy” skills on the big screen. No more “Scooby-Doo” sequels, please! You may remember Behr from the short-lived television show, “Roswell.”
