Never quite attains excellence

"Thanks for the effort..."

There's plenty for horror enthusiasts to enjoy about 2002's Ju-on, a Japanese horror film that made a lot of waves around the world upon release and was frequently compared to 1998's Ringu. Directed by Takashi Shimizu, this is a well-made genre offering which provides a handful of thrills and chills within a fascinating narrative framework. It's a stylish ... read more

Unbeknownst to me, "Ju-On: The Grudge" the the third in a series, and it is always a tricky thing to watch a sequel out of order. Fortunately, the film works well as an individual, and I understand that each film is different thematically.

Although not particularly smart or logic-heavy horror, 2004's "Ju-On: The Grudge" contains a couple of good scares and ends up being a fairly ... read more

Next to the "Ring", "Ju-On" is easily the most infamous horror franchise to stem from the early 2000's J-horror boom. The series has incredible longevity, inspiring not only a slew of Japanese sequels and reboots, but a full franchise in America as well. As could be expected, the films have grown rather rote and predictable by now, but the original Japanese film remains to be considered a classic.... read more

“Next to the "Ring", "Ju-On" is easily the most infamous horror franchise to stem from the early 2000's J-horror boom. The series has incredible longevity, inspiring not only a slew of Japanese sequels and reboots, but a full franchise in America as well. As could be expected, the films have grown rather rote and predictable by now, but the original Japanese film remains to be considered a classic. And while it is a decent enough offering of supernatural horror, it's far from perfect. It's non-linear narrative is at once the aspect that makes it original, and one of it's downfalls. Because we're simply moving from victim to victim, the film takes on the feeling of a slasher film. At some point we're just watching different, completely un-developed characters be stalked and bloodlessly kille” read more

"Re-watch - Aug. 30th When I found out Terror Tuesday was screening this I had to go. I never got the chance to see it on the big screen in the past, but I'm here to tell you that it's even more effective that way. The film isn't perfect, but I dig the odd construction of the story and the horror elements really hit the mark every time. And just to keep track of it, this is the first time Terror Tuesday has screened a film made during this century. That was kinda cool."
