Ju-on (2003)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
01.11.05

Ju-on (2003) This original version of 'The Grudge' didn't impress me. I liked the American version with Sarah Michelle Gellar MUCH more, primarily because it was more cohesive. A house is cursed after a husband brutally slays his wife and eight-year-old son. Anyone who visits it comes face to face with either the ghost of the woman or kid-and dies as a result. A volunteer social worker is assigned to fill in for another who is absent and ends up going to this apartment to check up on an elderly woman. Once there she finds a boy blocked in a room upstairs, so she calls back to her office to tell them this. Then, the old woman starts incoherently talking-and they come face to face with the woman's ghost. When the other worker from the office shows up he finds the volunteer in shock and the old woman dead.Then, others associated with the apartment start to die, including the last surviving policeman who had investigated the slayings four years before. As far as locations they looked pretty much the same in the remake. The actors, except for the psychotic father and the son, are all replaced as well. The effects in JU-ON are all physical-makeup mostly, while in the new version they heavily rely upon computer graphics.This original version of 'The Grudge' didn't impress me. I liked the American version with Sarah Michelle Gellar MUCH more, primarily because it was more cohesive.
