I'm not keen on kids in most contexts - I blame movies like Ju-On, Children of the Corn, Village of the Damned, and The Omen for that. The latest instalment in the Ju-On franchise had a limited release in Japan on June 28th, and is now making it's way to the Fantasia International Film Festival July 18th - August 6th in Montreal.
An elementary school teacher named Yui (Sasaki) visits the home of a boy named Toshio Saeki (Kobayashi), who's been absent from school for a long period of time. When she arrives, she re-lives the horrific tragedy which occurred in the Saeki household 10 years earlier. A cardboard box left in a closet holds the key to revealing a long-hidden truth.
If you haven't seen a trailer yet, it's because they're all in Japanese...BUT I found you one with subtitles because I care about you like that.
I don't know about YOU, but I LOVE the Japanese language, and I'm going to try to see this subtitled instead of dubbed.
Directed by Ochiai Masayuki, this sequel stars Nozomi Sasaki, Sho Aoyagi, Kai Kobayashi, Reina Triendl, Miho Kanazawa and Haori Takahashi.
What do YOU think? Will YOU be searching out this NEW Ju-On?
