Anyone know when this is out?

Re: Asian horror cinema

Uhh maybe I haven't had enough coffee and don't understand the question right... But here goes... The Ju-on movies were the original Japanese version, written and directed by Takashi Shimizu. The success he ended up having as a result of both Ju-on movies, got him the attention of larger studios, one of which offered to allow him to do a brand new English version of The Grudge.

If you have already seen the American Grudge versions, you're gonna watch the Ju-on ones and you will get that "i've seen this before" feeling. Some of The Grudge (US)  is *slightly* different but not by much, it very very close to some of the original Japanese.

As I usually feel, the Japanese versions were better lol. Might be my dislike of Sarah Michelle Gellar... Still though, this along with the Ring, I think the original language versions were better. smile

Re: Asian horror cinema

Think he's talking about the new 2014 Ju-on movie "Ju-on: The Beginning of the End"

Re: Asian horror cinema

Ahhh ya. Not sure on that one though.. It doesn't look like Takashi Shimizu had much to do with it. Didn't write or direct this one at all. Not even listed as executive producer or a story consultant. o.O Wonder what the story is behind that with him not being involved at all.

Re: Asian horror cinema

I'm betting that new Ju-on will prob show up on asian-horror-movies.com soonish and we'll be able to see what it's like. big_smile

Re: Asian horror cinema

Watching one of my all-time favorite Asian horror flicks right now -- the original Ringu from 1998.
