Japanese Horror

I'm a fan of the wave of Japanese horror movies that has been lapping at our shores the last couple of years. At the very least, it has sparked some new interest in horror, and The Ring and The Grudge were two of the best horror movies of recent years.

In that vein, Rene Zellweger is going to star (with Tom Cruise producing -- hopefully there won't be a John Travolta/Battlefield Earth effect) in a remake of a Japanese horror movie about a woman who sees the supernatural after a corneal transplant. That's a venerable (or just old, depending on your point of view) plot device, but I think there's some potential in it.
