Setting up a 15th anniversary celebration, the Ju-on virus continues to spread through Japan.
We revealed a few weeks 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. The announcement was made at Tokyo’s Akagi Shrine.
In the latest entry, “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.”
We now have the film’s Japanese teaser poster for the film that eyes Nozomi Sasaki and Kai Kobayashi to star.
Filming begins tomorrow with a release date already slated for June 28.
Ju-on: Owari no Hajimari marks the seventh Japanese film, making it the 10th in the franchise (if you include the three U.S. The Grudge films).
