The 18th annual Fantasia International Film Festival is gearing up to take Montreal by storm with three weeks of inspiration and excitement starting July 17 until August 5, 2014. The full 2014 lineup of programming and special events will be revealed shortly, but in the meantime, here’s some new imagery to whet your appetite.

We revealed a few months back that Ochiai Masayuki, who directed Infection, Hypnosis and the absolutely atrocious 2008 remake of Shutter, is set to pen and get behind the camera for Ju-on: Owari no Hajimari, or The Grudge: Beginning of the End.

Today, we got our hands on new imagery from the latest entry in which, “An elementary school teacher named Yui visits the home of a boy named Toshio Saeki 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.” Nozomi Sasaki and Kai Kobayashi star.

    For the 100th time, the film is called “Ju-on: The Beginning of The End”, as stated in the press release that announced this. What is up with you and your agenda to retitle this movie for no reason? “Ju-on” does not mean “The Grudge”. “The Grudge” is the name of the US remake… Lame.
