"The ghost" 7/10


Iīll bet not many have heard about this one. Itīs above average actually.


First of all, i have to say that when it comes to shock and scares "The ghost" has NO originality whatsoever. Lots of water, a ghost lady with long black hair and a bad combover, the victims sitting scared on their asses instead of running like hell, and itīs all like farted out of "Ringu".
But the creeps and shocks actually works in this one, compared to so many other rip-offs. Especially the shocks works quite nice mostly thanks to some very effective drum-like sound effects. The 1 computer effect there is also looks pretty decent.

The story is even more far out in itīs supernatural ellements than many other asian ghost stories, even though it doesnīt quite hold "water";) at the end. I donīt wanna spoil it for anyone who would wanna see it, so iīm not going into any details.
I liked the sureal scenes such as the main characters nightmares and the mental hospital bed scene. That was nicely made. Another thing i can say about it is, that itīs actually a really cruel and sad story.

A really anoying thing about this movie though is, that many of the female characters look so much alike, that it almost gave me a headache to figure out who was who. "Is that the good girl, the bad girl, the same girl, the poor girl..... WTF?!!!".
You seriously have to keep focus from beginning to end or youīll get lost easily. Iīm not good at that, so i had to watch it a third time to be sure i got it all..... Still didnīt quite get the very end though.:rolleyes:

The acting was also quite good all the way around.... Except for 1 person maybe.



Thatīs all i have to say about that.

:cool:

I thought it was great! A tad confusing, but once I [sorta] got my head around it, awesome movie! A few good creep-out scenes, too:)

Happy to hear that.:)

And youīre sure it was "Ju-on" you saw and not "Ju-on: the grudge"?

In an office. Cant really remember exactly, but she went to the house pretty soon into the movie.

Few other bits I remember:

The REALLY creepy scene where one girl watches the shadow-thing [for lack of a better word] on a security camera.


Young girl scared to go out cause her friends who were killed want revenge.


Creepy catatonic grandmother type person.


Here's the cover of the DVD I saw [either R1 or Region Free]:

Yup! I thought so. Youīve watched "Ju-on: the grudge".

"Ju-on" is the first, my favorite and the most scary of the four, and funny enough also the most low-budget.

It begins with a school teacher visiting the home of one of his pupils who has been missing at school.

I think it will be hard to rent in a video store, because itīs a low-budget movie made for television. But if you can, then get your hands on "Ju-on: the grudge 2". It has the biggest budget and an even more complicated storyline than "Ju-on: the grudge1". It might also be the most entertaining of them all. In my opinion, the next best in the japanese "Ju-on" serial.;)
