Awesome ‘Ju-on’ Poster Art Gives You the Evil Eye

the-grudge-726x248

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).

Ju-on (OV) (2000)
Ju-on 2 (OV) (2000)
Ju-on: The Grudge (2003)
Ju-on: The Grudge 2 (2003)
Ju-on: Black Ghost (2009)

    Wait, filming begins tomorrow and then it will be released just over 3 months later? Or did I read that wrong. Is it June 28 of next year?

      I wouldn’t be surprised at all if it was released 3 months from now. Japanese directors grind out movies like there is no tomorrow and I don’t think they spend very long making them. I’d be surprised if they spent two whole weeks filming this.

    That poster is awesome!

    Oh my god please stop it’s like you’re purposely trying to piss off the fans with this Mr. Disgusting. This is not the tenth installment of the franchise, it’s the seventh!! Stop repeating its the tenth. The Grudge Trilogy is not even a part of the Ju-on series (not that it’s bad or anything I’m a fan of both). I mean, you call REC 4 the fourth installment of its franchise (rightfully so, because it is) and don’t count the Quarantine movies, so why is this any different? THIS IS THE SEVENTH INSTALLMENT, people. So annoying.

    I love that poster so much. I want it on my wall. I’m very excited for this movie.
