Comments: Given the new Blu-ray releases of the Ju-on films I decided to re-watch the series
Katasumi In a Corner - (3.5) ... Dead kid. Pretty cool short. Shimizu's already got his aesthetic going on

4444444444 - (2.5) ... Not creepy short, really, until ... introducing Toshio

Ju-on: The Curse - (4.1) ... It's mostly soundtrack and facial work that give this its edge in creep-y. It's kind of hard to follow until you give up trying to follow it and try to just be scared somehow

Ju-on: The Curse 2 - (3.0) ... More/less fragmented skits. Losing a little steam here but still has the vibe. Nostalgic for the day when this stuff was cool and new-ish

Ju-on: The Grudge - (4.0) ... Decent reboot with a pretty high level of creepy but it's fragmented nonlinear structure works against a full embrace

Ju-on: The Grudge 2 - (3.1) ... My enthusiasm waned. At this point I found myself wishing I was re-visiting other J&K-Horror from the period instead, like:
Dark Water, Ringu stuff, The Red Shoes, Suicide Club, Whispering Corridors stuff, Phone, One Missed Call, etc. Ah, those were days

Summary: Two schoolgirls are gruesomely victimized by a horrifying ghost.

Two schoolgirls, Hisayo Yoshida and Kanna Murakami, who are tasked with caring for their school’s pet rabbits, are sweeping the cages and feeding the animals when Kanna cuts her hand, so Hisayo leaves her alone to go get bandages. (A prequel to the first version of Ju-on, 2000.)
