Extremely creepy.
14 February 2004 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Ju-On" has to be one of the creepiest horror films I have ever seen.Essentially the ghost story,it tells four interconnected stories that are all tied to the same house and the events that happened there.The film is extremely moody as it has almost dream-like atmosphere.The manifestations of spirits in "Ju-On" are so sudden and bone-chilling that it will surely make your skin crawl.Personally I think that the idea of the blood curse of the house(the grudge)is well-developed and the acting is decent.It's nice to see also Chiaki Kuriyama as a schoolgirl Mizuho Tamura.So if you are a fan of creepy Japanese horror you can't miss it.Highly recommended.
