‘The Grudge: Beginning of the End’ Trailer Is Crazy Scary!

The Grudge: Beginning of the End - Ju-On: Beginning of the End

Setting up a 15th anniversary celebration, the Ju-on virus continues to spread through Japan.

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 the official Japanese trailer that’s beyond jam-packed with scares. I seriously can’t believe how good this looks considering how tired the J-horror franchise has become. Seriously, even without subtitles, watch this shit and prepare for chills!

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.” Nozomi Sasaki and Kai Kobayashi star.

It opens in Japan 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)
Ju-on: White Ghost (2009)

JU-ON- THE BEGINNING OF THE END

    Very interesting! If you think that the last two were terrible, it seems that this is a decent effort back to creepy awesomeness. However the bed and stairs scenes have been vastly overplayed and lost their impact through time! The sound effects of the ghost though are still scary as fuck!

      The last ones was horrid, just like the last of the Ringu series. But this one looks pretty promising.

      White Ghost was very good!

        Ok not that terrible – it was a figure of speech :D But the first one for me is still the best :)

  • Rob

    Not going to lie this looks terrible imo….didnt find one thing scary about that trailer…well except for the cell phone (tablet?) thing at the end wth is that? haha

  • marklola12 .

    this looks stupid and not scary at all lol

  • ThunderDragoon

    I’m so excited for this. And I kinda want that Toshio thing for my phone lol.

    The film is called “Ju-on: Beginning of the End”, not “The Grudge: Beginning of the End”, all of the Ju-on films have kept the word “Ju-on” in the English title, as with this one. Like, do you get off on reporting about this film using a title you guys pretty much gave it? This is the only site that keeps mistitling this film over and over again, you guys need a break + “The Grudge” is the name of the remake series which is why they’re not calling it “The Grudge” in the US, and Ju-on doesn’t even translate to “Grudge” in the first place. The more you know! (and it’s still the seventh film, not tenth, not every remake is an entry in a franchise, do research a bit)

    Trailer looks crazy though, it reminds me of Sadako 3D or Tomie Unlimited. Hopefully it will be more like the latter.

    do people really find these movies scary? i’m not bashing anyone, i sincerely want to know. the only semi-creepy parts of these movies (IMO) is the sound the ghost makes (at the end in this trailer). and i’m not liking the cat being put in the microwave.

    • Evan3

      Agreed, that crushed throat noise alone was worth the Grudge series, but overall, this was never that scary.

  • MMctz

    As the biggest Ju-on fan around… (I say so)… I think it looks like shit.

    Hands sticking out of odd places is all I saw as far as scares go… pure Asian horror generica anymore. And something that seems silly to me… they just swapped Kayako’s moments from the originals and put the infinitely less scary Toshio (who I consider comedy relief) in her place. Ugh!

    Such a pointless remake… bring on 5 (preferably by Shimizu), not this Syfy-quality cash-in shit like this and Sadako.

    • Evan3

      It is true, of all the ghosts, Toshio is the least scary.

    • ThunderDragoon

      It’s better to have this than the American re-remake that they’re doing without Kayako. She is the franchise. Without her, it’s nothing.

      • Christensen

        The American ~reboot~ (not a “re-remake”, The Grudge was never remade or rebooted once before and it’ll be a reboot of that series as said 16548 times) will introduce a new plot because Kayako’s story got wrapped up in the first three movies, and American audiences have kind of gotten over the Kayako character and ghosts like her in general so they’re gonna be starting up a new storyline with new and hopefully scarier ghosts and it’s the perfect way to go. Everyone always mixes her up with Samara and other characters alike so it’s not like she’s a super recognizable character associated with the brand exclusively, it makes sense to start anew. The Ju-on series tried this with White & Black Ghost but I hope the The Grudge reboot is a bit less random and more persistent that those films.

        And I agree Toshio is the least scary ghost, he always felt like a side character to me.

    Kitty no!

    Can’t wait to see this!

  • zombie84_41

    I’ll watch it on DVD. I don’t want to spoil the scares. I gave up on these movies too because after awhile they were all boring

  • Radioactive Empire

    This could be another case of Sadako 3d, a new sequel that destroys the japanese horror classic.
