    I agree. Way too much Grimm!

  • AnneM

    Grimm’s all over other Zap2It pages also. Must be a big push to sell the DVD.

    I hate the way u have the werewolves so weak against the vampire. I have been watching television movies a long time and I tell u werewolves are not weak. Werewolves are known to kill vampires except with yours. I also hate the way the story line how u let that crazy butchering man take that child. Its a crime against a child. Don’t we see enough of that in the news.
