Movie Info

When Nishina Rika (Megumi Okina), a volunteer home care worker, steps inside the house of a bed-ridden patient, she happens upon a bizarre ghostly presence behind a door that had been sealed shut with duct tape. Inadvertently, Nishina releases a mysterious evil force, and soon learns that a series of people who have entered the house went permanently missing shortly afterward. Eventually, Nishina's investigation leads to the strange story of Izumi Toyama (Misa Uehara), a former detective who handled the case of a man who had murdered his wife in the infamous house. In addition to fearing that she may be the house's next victim, Nishina is worried that the spirit is determined to leave its confines and murder Izumi.

Audience Reviews for Ju-on: The Grudge

  • Aug 15, 2014
    Despite its fragmented, diffuse structure and obvious lack of a narrative center, this competent Japanese horror movie manages to create an oppressive atmosphere with an intriguing mystery that can be pretty disturbing sometimes, even if some of it also falls flat.

    Arguably one of the scariest J-Horror movies ever made. While it's light on story, it works almost completely on a visceral level. The images are just downright creepy.

    It's structured way more complicated than it need to be, especially because it jumps back and forth through time between every sequence and it's frequently unclear when events take place, and it only has a few moments that are genuinely scary, but Ju-on is still a decent Japanese scary movie with a creepy vibe to it, even if it does seem a little weak when compared to masterful Japanese horror movies like Ringu and Audition.

    This was so boring. Inventive and innovative on the style of scares it delivers, but I DIDN'T get scared.
