When someone dies
in the grip of a powerful rage
A curse is born.
Once you see it-you can never forget.
Once it sees you-you can never escape.
Master Japanese film maker Takashi Shimizu brings you this American adaptation of his cult horror film series "Ju-On' & "Ju-On:The Grudge". But this is unlike any other US remake before, as Shimizu returns as director, retains the eerie setting in Tokyo and brings back many of the original actors. The result is a truly terrifying, claustrophobic and unique imagining of pure horror.
Karen (Sarah Michelle Gellar) has recently followed her boyfriend to Japan and has been summoned to her first job as a social worker - as a fill-in minder to a near catatonic woman who has been left alone in a secluded house. But even as she steps beyond the front door, Karen senses something is wrong within.
This house possesses an evil that is passed like a virus to all those who enter in an endless, growing chain of horror. The maelstrom has begun.
