Hmmm... Is that the OG Ju-on?
The Grudge? Grudge 2? Grudge 3 - The Search for Curly's Gold?
Aye, 'tis Ju-On. Not sure if The Grudge ends the same, as I've yet to see it."...Curly's Gold" made me laugh way more than it probably should have!
Isn't there about 12 JU-ON films by now? All of them sucking total ass?Sorry Shimuzu, but you're a hack.
Haven't they made, like, 12 of these JU-ON films?And they're still no closer to being any GOOD.
There are indeed many. I've only seen the first and I rather liked it, but I'm not salivating over watching the sequels...although the trailers for...what are they called? Ju-On Black and Ju-On White?...from last year or whenever looked pretty good.
Shimizu's JU-ON:The Grudge 2 (the sequel to the film version) is actually pretty interesting-he plays with time and space/rubber reality there in a very 80s Wes Craven kind of way. But truthfully, I don't think any of them were as effective as the original V-Cinema version.
JU-ON 2: Electric Grudgealoo is a movie waiting to happen.
^but it still couldn't measure up to Ju On: Megalodon.
I'd say the filmed version (aka the third one total) is a near-masterpiece.
Ju-On: THE GRUDGE 2 puts Shimizu on an upper tier of filmmaking.Though no one besides me has ever commented about the beauty of the final scene, I think it holds its own with some of the moments by Kurosawa, Mizoguchi, etc.
I actually think that with Marebito and Reincarnation, Shimizu-san left his Ju-on movies in the dust.Especially Marebito. That movie fucking rules.
Merebito is an odd film. Not sure if I'd call it a great movie but it definitely left a mark on me.
