Awesome! I love how sometimes the shots are bland, and sometimes they're essential, like this one. (This is from the third Ju-On, right? Not the first one that was shot on video?)

I like this one, even though it felt like they crammed in a few to many story-lines into one movie...but it's still creepy as all hell.

You have offended my family and you have offended a shaolin temple.

This is from the first film, I believe? Or whatever's been labeled such for the US release.

Yeah, this one's pretty perfect, although he is slightly less scary when you can see that his eyeliner's smudged. :D

They made two films that were cheap and shot on video for Japanese direct-to-video release, then the third film was shot on film and that's the one that was released in the US as "Ju-On: The Grudge". Then they made a sequel to that one, then they made the American version, and then they made a sequel to _that_ one plus a third direct-to-video one that I haven't seen, and two more Japanese sequels from different directors.

Film Club Selection:

The Creature From the Black Lagoon.

Because a) It's a classic.

b) B & W Horror is under-represented on your site.

c) It has monsters and they're always (er, mostly) good.

d) I've already done it so can cheat with a quickie link.

Okay, it's mostly d).
