I thought this one was excellent. Very disturbing imagery. Some of it stays for days. I've never seen the remake and I'm sure I never will. There's just something about J-horror that doesn't translate well to american film versions. It's like pouring a lot of water into a cup of perfectly made cocoa (that's the best analogy I could think of at the moment :)I like the comparison to M.R. James. I think I'll watch it again, in that light.
Yes, I agree that remakes are pointless because they fall so flat. Still, I'm reliably informed that some people can't watch movies with subtitles. I suppose it's a question of what you're accustomed to.
