I watched this film recently and it scared me,no doubt about it.This film is one of the scariet films ever made and thats what the experts say and i don't disagree with them.
The story is about a house that harbours a curse and releases it upon any people who enter it,with frightening consequences.
The dvd i watched was the region 2 version that was released on DVD on February 21, 2005 it is a newer version that has loads of extras on it including an alternative ending and you can watch the film dubbed which isn't bad at all really.
If you are wanting to purchase this version i have just described,check it has these options on it and check the release date is the one that i have stated in this review,because there are other versions out.
Not many horrors better than this one,excellent.

A good friend of mine believes that there are no such things as scary movies, that movies can only unsettle you at best, but not actively scare you. Well, having watched this particular slice of Japanese horror, I would say that this comes pretty damn close to being actually, genuinely scary.

Ju-On (to give it its Japanese title), is essentially a good old fashioned haunted house movie, but with an amazingly modern twist. Told via a series of interconnected chapters, linked to the house and concerning the effects of the haunted house on a series of women who come into contact with it, the film has a slightly nonlinear structure, which means to get the most out of it you really have to pay attention, but this investment in time pays of handsomely. The Grudge concerns the after effects of a brutal murder carried out in an apparently average house in an average suburb. A husband murders his wife and then kills himself, and as we later find out, the couples young son is never seen again, although it is never verified whether or not he is dead (just adds to the mystery). However, as explained at the beginning of the movie, when people die violently in the grip of great anger, a mark is left, something of that person's anger is left behind, and effects anyone who comes into contact with it. As a result of this, further occupants of the house were the murder took place become the unwitting victims of this curse.

The cast are uniformly good, although the real star of the film is Yuya Ozeki as Toshio, the little boy who now haunts the house (and indeed anyone who enters the house), turning in a performance that manages to be deeply creepy simply by using facial expressions and his physical presence, rather than going for any Hollywood style over the top nonsense.

I was watching film 2004 with Jonathan Ross the other day when he reviewed the american remake. He mentioned it was the same as the `Ring`, where it has come from a Jap` original. Being a fan of the `Ring` series I immediately bought this dvd.
I was well impressed with it. Eventhough the american one has been `beefed up`, you cant beat the original for its sophistication and somewhat uncomfortable subtle eery atmospheric horror scenes. Quite alot is left to the imagination rather than being subjected to seeing full on `in your face` horror. This is what makes it so realistically scary, where the horror is brought so close to home and seems to happen so very easily - which certainly makes it play on your mind afterwards, especially if your just about to go to bed.
So if you want a film that will leave you a bit bewildered and chillingly shaken up then I recommend you see it. You`ll be discussing it for ages with others who have seen it trying to interpret and analyse the story in your own way. Cheers.

Ju-On continues what has become a tradition in Japanese cinema - it has been rapidly remade by Hollywood, presumably because it is recognised as having great potential (for profit) but is seen, in its original form, as too difficult for western audiences. Well, it is a strange film, and not an easy one to follow, particularly if you have to keep up with the subtitles. Trying to explain what happens and why it is disturbing is a bit like playing peek-a-boo - one moment you think you've grasped it, the next, the story is as ephemeral as cigarette smoke.
A social worker visits an untidy house to find a confused old woman. She hears noises and, when she investigates, discovers a black cat and a feral boy locked away upstairs. The enigmatic weave of the mystery is then elaborated as we follow the tales of other visitors to the house ... some before the social worker, some after her ... each of whom assists us in unlocking the story of what has happened to the child and what will become of the social worker.
The horror, here, is never defined. Ju-On follows in another Japanese tradition - horror, evil, the inexplicable are portrayed as timeless qualities. Fear is in the unknown, so is horror being unable to understand what is happening? Now you see it, now you don't.
The plot is decidedly disjointed. You are unable to decide, from moment to moment, where the story starts ... or where it will end. We have a feral child who plays a macabre version of peek-a-boo. Now you understand it, now you don't ... until the next scene offers some explanation. And further confusion.
There is no music, no special effects, no dramatic sounds, hardly any action. The story unfolds in slow motion. It's scary in places, it's strange throughout. Some spirit of vengeance haunts the house ...
