Movie: Ju-on: White Ghost & Black Ghost (2010)

Everybody knows who or what Ju-on is. IMHO, Ju-on is one of the most reputable horror movie ever filmed in the Japanese horror movie industry. Even the Americans produced remakes of "Ju-on" with the title "The Grudge" - the meaning of ju-on.

Some of us might confuse "Ju-on" with "Ringu" (Japanese) or "The Ring" (American). Here's how to differentiate the two movies.

In "Ringu", you watch a she-ghost climbing out from a narrow well with long hair covering her face. She's Sadako (Japanese) or Samara (American). In "Ju-on", what you see are basically white-faced ghosts, especially that of a little boy. Also, you'll hear that freaking throaty "aaaaaaakkkkkkk" sound from the ghosts. :S

This year, the Japanese feeds horror movie fans with a new sequel from Ju-on. So, we've Ju-on: White Ghost & Black Ghost. In a nutshell, there are two separate movies, i.e. one ghost in each movie with the white ghost taking precedence.

The thing is... this movie is very confusing. Allow me to explain.

The idea of using flashback sequences is good. Each sequence focuses on a character and how he/she is killed by the curse, either directly or indirectly. The white ghosts (take note that I'm using the plural form) are the results of a family massacre. The black ghost is the result of an unborn twin.

The confusing thing is... certain parts of the second movie are related to the first movie directly or indirectly (again). It's as if the scenes were filmed backwards, i.e. against normal timelime by starting off with the latest incidents and drilling down to incidents that happened 7 years ago in the same house. However, not all plots are related correctly or logically. Some plots are hanging in the air, adding on to the confusion, leaving me wondering what is what.

Okay, 'nuff said. My point is... if you're not a big fan of horror movies, give this movie a skip. This advice comes from myself, a horror movie fan. :)
