Session 9, Arachnophobia & Final Destination.

....? Okay then.

Try:

The Ring
The Ring Two
Dark Water
Shutter
Pulse

Though seriously, get into some other films than those. Those aren't that great as horror movies.

Those aren't comparable? I say they are very much a notch above.

Comparable? They blow The Grudge out of the water...Well...I didn't care for Session 9. Maybe I need to re-watch it.

That is true. But the American remakes, just aren't all that.

I agree, I guess I agree with Chan-wook Park. I think American remakes of Asian films can be great but only if they really add to it, just replacing the names and places with American names and places is lazy and leads to a very inferior film. The best recent example of a good American remake has to be The Departed... and we could have many more if there weren't so many lazy studios.

Shutter was done by the executive producer of the grudge and the ring so I say you give that a try. Pretty decent movie. You can check out the trailer at http://www.shutterdvd.com/

Yep, and the paraphrasing I did was from his response when asked about it.
