How We Determine Our Grades

Ghost stories have been haunting movies for many years. The Others and The Sixth Sense are two that are bound to send shivers up your spine (but should be carefully considered before showing to teen audiences). Alfred Hitchcock masterfully creates suspense without supernatural means in the films, Rear Window and Lifeboat.

Home Video Extra Features

The Grudge 2 comes to DVD in two editions. The original theatrical version is accompanied by deleted scenes, a cast and crew Reel Change Montage, and three featurettes: East Meets West, Grudge 2: Storyline Development, and Ready When You Are, Mr. Shimizu. If that is not enough scare for you, there is also an Unrated Director’s Cut. This version offers all of the aforementioned bonus materials plus two additional featurettes: Holding a Grudge: Kayako & Toshio and Tales from the Grudge (with an introduction from Sam Raimi).
