“The Grudge” just scared the piss outta me.

So I’m in the hotel room and decided to watch some TV. Normally I don’t even bother turning on the TV when I’m on the road. Therefore, I am unaccustomed to anything making noises in the hotel room except me and maybe a cellphone or leaky toilet. But I was board, and “The Grudge” was on.

Remember that movie? Sarah Michelle Gellar vs. some angry Asian ghosts? Yeah, that.

I”m only half-watching the movie, but the sound is turned up kinda high. Nothing interesting is happening on the screen so I decide to to to the bathroom. Ahh, but this is one of those scenes where the ghost pops up in a reflection and makes that weird choking noise out of nowhere. So as soon as I turn the corner to the bathroom:

Ghost: “AAH-AAH-AAH!”
Dark Icon: “…AAAA! THE FUCK!? Oh. Shit.”

Guess ya had to be there.

….actually, this whole post was just me testing the updated blog software to make sure it still works. Although the above sequence of events DID really just happen.

    This was one of the few movies that actually scared me when I saw it. I was having a sleepless night so I went out to the living room and popped in the DVD around 11:30 or so. Left the lights out too. It sure as heck didn’t help me fall to sleep. I think I even turned on a light or two after the movie was over.

    I’ll have to watch it again sometime to see if it’s still that scary.

    BTW: I kind of like the new format for this blog. Any way to add a search capability to it? Sometimes I look for specific postings, such as some of the movie revies, and I end up just refreshing the screen until the random link gives me what I want.

    I thought the Grudge was decent. It certainly had some fear-inducing moments, and it’s good enough for me to keep watching when I see it on TV. But toward the end of that movie I kept wondering:
    “Why doesn’t he just kick that undead bitch in the head! I mean… she’s gonna kill him anyway, so it can’t HURT, right?”
