Because it sounded better than “holding a ju-on,” but that’s what this story is really about. Ju-on, the Japanese film series that inspired the American horror series The Grudge, is continuing this June (the 27th, to be exact) with TWO new films! Nippon Cinema has both a trailer and a summary of the new flicks:
Ju-on: Shiroi Roujo, written and directed by Ryuta Miyake, stars Akina Minami as a high girl with a 6th sense named Akane who starts having disturbing visions of a childhood best friend who recently died in a family murder-suicide.
Ju-on: Kuroi Shojo, written and directed by Mari Asato, stars Ai Kago as a nurse named Yuko who cares for a young girl who has a strange cyst inside her body. The cyst turns out to be the leftover grudge of an unborn baby and begins to spread to the people around them, driving them mad.
