The latest instalments in one of the most successful J-horror series of all time is heading to the UK, with the news that the newest in the The Grudge series; “Ju-On: White Ghost “ and ”Ju-On: Black Ghost” are set for release there on DVD, via 4Digital Asia. This double bill of cursed retribution and horror was directed by Ryuta Miyake and Mari Asato respectively, and whilst the mastermind of the original Ju-on series Takashi Shimizu wasn’t directly involved in the filming, he apparently supervised the production of both. Two Grudges for the price of one, are released on April 19th.
Ju-on: White Ghost A son brutally and methodically murders all five of his family members after failing the bar exam. He then hangs himself. At the moment of his death, he made a cassette tape recording in which he can be heard saying “I'll go, I'll go soon.” On the same tape can also be heard the eerie sound of a young girl's voice. It is the voice of Mirai, who was a friend of Akane, whilst at primary school. Mirai was a victim of the mass family slaughter incident. Akane, who is now a senior high school student, has had a strong ESP since childhood. Suddenly, one day Mirai appears in front of her, wearing the yellow cap and red backpack of a primary school student. The terror is just about to begin...
Ju-on: Black Ghost Nurse Yuko is left in charge of a young girl called Fukie, and begins to experience strange things. Medical examinations reveal that there is a "cyst" in Fukie's body. The cyst is actually an unborn one that is full of hatred for mankind and curses everyone around her. Yuko's neighbour is taken by a girl in black, and Fukie's father commits a murder and goes insane. Fukie's mother has to rely on the special psychic powers of Fukie's younger sister to help drive out the evil spirit. However, the exorcism catastrophically fails, and the worst grudge yet begins.
