Im going to catch hell for this, but in all respects this was an ok film. Had the original film not been made, this version would not have received such negative criticism. The problem is, the original does exist, and it makes it so that the new film really holds no appeal. Nothing has been drastically changed (for the better at least), and American remakes just never seem to recapture the eeriness and creep factor of the Asian ghost movies. The music makes the film feel too cinematic, whereas the minimalism in the original instills in the viewer a sense of lonliness and despair, and plays in to the fact that the main characters other senses have been heightened from being blind by focusing on the ambient sounds rather than an overly dramatic score. This version does offer decent acting, great camera work, and a few off-setting visuals, but the computerized spirits reduce the effect and the whole film feels overly dramatized. Worth checking out as a means of comparison, but this one has very little rewatchability and will be forgotten soon enough.
