While driving, the pregnant horror-movie actress Kyôko Harase and her fiancé are in a car crash caused by Toshio. Kyôko loses her baby and her fiancé winds up in a coma. Kyôko was cursed together with a television crew, when they shot a show in the haunted house, where Kayako was brutally murdered by her husband years ago. While each member of the team dies or disappears, Kyôko is informed that she has a three-and-a-half-month-old fetus in her womb.
I thought this part was a little bit better, than the previous Ju-on: The Grudge movie. The only downfall, with this movie, was it started off slow. Though, after the first segment of the film, the movie starts to pick up rapidly.
As for the storyline, I thought it was a great ending, to the series. The only thing was the very end. That was one weird way to end the series, in my opinion, but it was very unique and something I wasn’t expecting to happen, until I saw this movie.
As for the acting, like most of Takashi Shimizu’s work, I didn’t notice any flaws or any errors. I don’t recall seeing too many Japanese movies with bad acting, unlike a few of Hollywood’s films, in the US.
If you haven’t seen this movie, it’s definitely worth watching. If you have seen all of the previous movies, then you’ll enjoy the ending, as well.
As for the entire series, I would have to say Ju-on: The Curse 1 & 2 were my favorite, of the series. I thought The Grudge was too much with special effects and not enough scare scenes, but that’s just my opinion. Either way though, I enjoyed all 4 movies and thought they were all put together very well. Compared to the US version, I would recommend the original Japanese versions over the US’s because Hollywood couldn’t put together a perfect remake to this movie, even if their lives depended on it.
