Ju-on: the Grudge II



A familiar trend in all the Juon series is the non-linear storylines. This version is no different. But what sets this apart is that all the characters stem from one event, and all their lives are affected by it. The plotline twists in clever turns that you can't help but grin at certain parts of the film.

We are introduced to Kyoko, an actress who we find out is pregnant, and her boyfriend Masashi. Driving back one night, they suffer a car accident (later revealed having been caused by the boy Toshio) causing Masashi to fall in a coma, and Kyoko to miscarry. At least, that's what seems to happen. Kyoko has been steadily haunted by Toshio, who at one time ominously touched her belly as if to tell us something. However, after a routine physical check-up, Kyoko discovers she is still pregnant, much to her confused delight.

TOMOKA – A young woman, Tomoka, hears thumping in her apartment, always at a specific time. This bothers her, and tells her boyfriend about it. Dropping by one night, he hears it too - always at the stroke of 12:27. They brush it off as a mere prank, but strange things start happening to both of them as weird visions and the now-familiar croaking over the phone visits them both.

MEGUMI – A TV crew sets up to do a special on the now-famous haunted house. Included in this roster is TV host Tomoka, producer Keisuke, hair and make-up stylist Megumi, and guest star Kyoko. While filming inside the house, sure enough, weird things start happening. They pack-up for the day, and while fixing some wigs at the studio, Megumi has a hair-raising experience.

KEISUKE Masashi awakens from his coma, but is still in a catatonic state. All this sheds an ominous light over Kyoko's pregnancy. Things get even more troublesome for her when TV producer Kaisuke tells her that several of the crew involved in their TV project has either died or disappeared. The two decide to investigate, and discover that Kyoko's pregnancy might have a bigger part in the grand scheme of the curse.

CHIHARUA young girl has recurring nightmares about the haunted house. When she is cast as an extra in a horror film starring Kyoko, she realizes the set is the same house she's been having nightmares about.

KAYAKOIn the climactic final sequence, the mystery of Kyoko's pregnancy is horrifyingly revealed, wreaking havoc on a hospital maternity staff and a hapless TV producer.

The Grudge (english remake)



The Grudge describes a curse that is born when someone dies in the grip of a powerful rage or extreme sorrow. The curse gathers in the place where that person died. Those who encounter this murderous supernatural force die and the curse is reborn repeatedly, passed from victim to victim in an endless, growing chain of horror.

The Grudge 2 (english remake)



In The Grudge, Kayako Saeki was a young Japanese woman who developed an unhealthy obsession with an American professor named Peter, who was working in Japan. She chronicled her obsession in her diary, which was found by her husband Takeo. Takeo then broke his wife's neck and drowned their son Toshio in the bathtub, then slashed their cat's throat. He wrapped his wife in plastic and placed her body in the attic. He then placed Toshio's body in an upstairs closet, before hanging himself. Kayako's demonic spirit haunted the house, using Toshio and their cat to terrorize and ultimately destroy anyone who came into contact with them, except for a young American social worker named Karen Davis. The Grudge 2 finds Karen in a hospital after attempting to burn down the house following the death of her boyfriend. The movie encompasses three stories following the lives of Karen's sister Aubrey , three schoolgirls living in Japan, and a family living in Chicago in different time periods.
