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).
