This movie is a remake of a Japanesse movie, Ju On, with the same director.
This IS a horror movie. Remind me of the Ring and this movie sure scares the hell of many people. I believe this western version is already milded down for western viewer but still it scared the hell of many of its audiences (I based this prediction according to how many people are screaming while watching this movie and how many of them are saying “that WAS damn scary” after the movie was over).
The story itself is quite simple, it is about a haunted house. Thru out the film the history of the haunted house began to reveal and between that lots of people died… in a gruesome way.
Like the movie, it sure one good movie to watch if you are a horror movie fans. You never look inside your attic the same way again…
