Product Description

Two new sequels for Ju-on: The Grudge.

Ju-on: White Ghost A son brutally and methodically murders all five of his family members after failing the bar exam. He then hangs himself. At the moment of his death, he made a cassette tape recording in which he can be heard saying 'I'll go, I'll go soon...'. On the same tape can be heard the eerie sound of a young girl's voice. It is the voice of Mirai, who was a friend of Akane, whilst at primary school. Mirai was a victim of the mass family slaughter incident. Akane, who is now a senior high school student, has had a strong ESP power since childhood. Suddenly one day Mirai appears in front of her, wearing the yellow cap and red backpack of a primary school student. The terror is just about to begin...

Ju-on: Black Ghost Nurse Yuko is left in charge of a young girl called Fukie, and begins to experience strange things. Medical examinations reveal that there is a 'cyst' in Fukie's body. The cyst is actually an unborn one that is full of hatred for mankind and curses everyone around her. Yuko's neighbour is taken by a girl in black, and Fukie's father commits a murder and goes insane. Fukie's mother has to rely on the special psychic powers of Fukie's younger sister to help drive out the evil spirit. However, the exorcism eventually fails, and the worst grudge yet begins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ju-on" has returned at its 10th Anniversary!! 3 Mar 2010
By Steve
Format:DVD
Anyone who's ever watched the first "Ju-on" (the original Japanese version), before America came-a-calling to plunder the story and make one of their own would remember how scary it was. Several sequels later, from both Japan and America, comes another Japanese sequel.

But wait, from the title "Ju-on: White Ghost and Black Ghost", apparently there are two ghosts. What gives you say? Well, it has two separate movies in one, so that's already worth the price of ticket admission. Take it this way; if you don't like one ghost, you can always take the other.

On a serious note, however, the movie starts off with the story of the White Ghost. It begins with a family massacre. A son murders five members of his family when he starts to hear a cassette tape of a voice that keeps repeating, "I'll go. I'll go soon..." He himself then commits suicide, also recording a similar message. The White Ghost then starts to haunt everyone who is related to the house, visited the house, or has a connection to anyone in the house. However, the one who is most affected is Akane (Akina Minami) who has a sixth sense, and also a childhood friend of the murdered little girl from the massacre.

The second movie, of the Black Ghost has more in common with the original "Ju-on" movie. It is about a nurse Yuko (Ai Kago) who takes care of a patient Fukie, only to have the spirit of Fukie's unborn twin haunt her, hence the Black Ghost. And yes, it's a dark ghost, which thus explains its name. It also explains the origins of the ghost in the original "Ju-on" movie.

Certainly, both "White Ghost" and "Black Ghost" are worthy additions to the franchise, and serve as a fine reminder of why the series became so popular in the first place. The return of the industrious, pale skinned ankle grabbers is very welcome, as will be further sequels if this level of quality can be maintained.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh...my...AAAAAAAAARG...gosh... 16 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
Ok I am watching White Ghost as I am typing this and I have jumped about 4 times. It is SERIOUSLY jumpy! So far, the story line is actually ok, is linking quite well with the original Ju-On's but not too much to make it part of the sequel.

I like actually. I like a lot!

Terrifying though, don't watch alone at night!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two more Ju-On films 17 May 2010
By MarkusG
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD contains two films in the Ju-On ("The Grudge") series. I've seen two earlier Ju-On before, and these two films felt just as scary. As in the other Ju-On films, the plot revolves around a house where something terrible has happened. "Ju-On" refers to a curse created when someone dies in rage, and this curse spreads. You don't have to see the earlier films to appreciate this DVD as each film has a new plot.

Like the other Ju-On films, the story is told through short episodes showing the events through the perspectives of different persons. The episodes give clues to the mystery of what happened in the house. The storytelling is efficient and the use of special effects is economic, and the result is impressive. The creators of Ju-On don't need much gore or CGI to create suspense, a person behaving irregular can sometimes be enough. After a few minutes I at least feel the shivers. The action takes place in modern Japan and follows ordinary people: a nurse, a cab driver, a crime investigator, children and so on.

The DVD contains "Ju-On: White Ghost" and "Ju-On: Black Ghost", each about an hour long. It is pointless to go into the content as this will probably just spoil the experience. Don't read on the flip side of the DVD cover, just see the films. The transfer/picture worked fine on my projector. There is no extra material though.

Although we were happy with the delivery and packing we cannot say the same for the DVD itself. Not quite what we were expecting or what the cover effect gives you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Expected!! 3 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
When I first heard they were making another Ju On movie to mark the 10 year anniversary, I have to admit, I thought it would be bad. Then I realised they were making 2 movies, which honestly, sounded just terrible.

I bought it to give it a go and I was very pleasently surprised. While obviously its not superior to the original, its still a nicely told and polished production. Each movie is an hour long but there are still plenty of shocks and suspense to keep you watching. This Is why I prefer Asian Horror to Hollywood, you don't need tonnes of blood to make a good movie.

White Ghost just edges out Black Ghost for me as the storyline is more hard hitting but Black Ghost appears to be more faithful to the original Ju On.

If you're still wondering whether to buy it or not, I say just buy it. It's only a fiver!!
