Japan for the Uninvited

Japanese culture from a bemused foreign perspective

Ju-on (2000)

While ‘Ringu’ reintroduced the world to Japanese horror, the underground success of ‘Ju-on’ has proved that the industry is no one-hit-wonder.

While trying to help a catatonic old lady, a volunteer care worker stumbles across the evil secret of the woman’s house, and unleashes the malevolent spirit of a dead boy.

Like ‘Ringu’, ‘Ju-on’ spawned an expensive Hollywood remake, ‘The Grudge’. It was released in October 2004, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.
