22 June 2006 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This film has been accused of plagiarism, which is absolutely the case. Overlong, unambitious, and frankly scare-less, this hodgepodge amalgamation of some of the more recognizable moments in other J-Horror flicks is basically a waste of time, albeit 75 minutes. Lifting far too obviously from the Ju-On series, and even tipping its hat to Kairo and Ringu, "Ju-Rei" is a cheap knock off. Unreasonably long periods of absolute inaction help stretch this to a (barely) feature-length runtime, including an infuriating THREE MINUTE sequence of a young woman hiding under a blanket. The camera opens scenes five to ten seconds before the action begins, and holds on them long after the action and actors have moved on to the next set piece. A single and mildly effective single shot of a darkened stair case in a child's school provides the film with one memorable and nicely done moment, but that's just not enough by far. Downright awful production value and a story as thin as a single strand of long black hair fill in the rest of the short runtime. If you're a fan of Asian horror, skip it. If you're not a fan, this could turn you off to the whole thing. Dreck.
