not to be confused with the new retarded american version.
this is far the best ju -on grudge's yet. --asian version
this is also japanese and subtitled. not to be confused with the new one in theatres.
you may or may not know- but the japanese versions of the grudge came in 4 parts.
1) ju on : the curse (made for tv)
2)ju on: the curse 2 (made for tv)(remade today as grudge 2)
3) ju on: the grudge (remake in america the grudge)
4) ju on: the grudge 2
this one (4) is the best of the series and far most the creepiest.
In this movie the story really has no relation to the first aside from the basic theme. It starts out with a couple driving home one night. The female is a pregnant actress who just recently wrapped up a shoot in the notorious house. Apparently a TV production crew wanted a familiar face to host a horror-themed show that covers the legend behind the supposedly haunted house. Well it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the crew (including the actress) have marked their death, because the movie (like the first) tells the stories of each individual by going backwards, leading to the events of the crew just arriving in the house, then brings us back to present day.
Some scares from the first are used again in this flick, but with a slightly different twist, so it's not exactly the same-old. Although I didn't find neither of the two movies scary, they did manage to dish out some solid creepy scenes.
i really enjoyed this one.
and hope other asian horror fans will as well
