|Ju on The Beginning of the End|
This is the 7th installment of the Ju-on franchise. The movie, in Japanese, is also known as 'Ju-on: Owari no Hajimari' An elementary school teacher named Yui (Nozomi Sasaki) visits the home of a boy named Toshio Saeki (Kai Kobayashi) who's been absent from school for a long period of time. When she arrives, she re-lives the horrifying events that occurred in the Saeki household 10 years earlier.
So what is a Ju-on? It's a curse, a grudge, that is created when a tortured human dies as the result of an unspeakable evil deed. The Japanese describe this as a lingering powerful rage or extreme lonesome sorrow that is manifested as a ghostly spirit, what they call Onryo. Onryo spirits are typically female, who have suffered in the hands of their lovers, be it abuse, neglect, murder etc After death, these women, once powerless in the living world, now become strong, vengeful, angry and demonic (sounds a bit like my mum if I haven't cleaned my room) towards all who tread their path. "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned"
So, being a devout Horroratti (i.e. horror addict), for me, the jumpier and bumpier the flick, the happier and Chattier the chick!!!! I think I'm going to give the Ju On series a 8 on 10.
Having said that, I have only seen 3 out of the 8 Ju-on series'. (I feel ashamed to call myself a paranormal addict) But, after the first two, you know exactly what to expect in the final few. Bummer!!!!!!!
Japanese and Korean Horrors are definitely the most authentic, spine-chilling, curdling, movies ever made. However, if you plan on streaming these online, and you don't know the local language, you may end up having a right laugh with their English subtitles. I mean, what does, "I Police, Someone You" even mean?
I'm pretty sure this girls name wasn't Seven Seas! (Unless the script writers wife had a pregnancy craving for cod liver oil tablets at the time).
And please can someone explain to me what the following timeline is about? All I understood is 'Males are just wrong'. I think I agree.

|Males are just wrong|
This doesn't mean that the 7th instalment won't give you the heebie jeebies. There is something about this Ju-on that is spine-chillingly petrifying. With screechy cats that are turned to popcorn in the microwave, and squeaky nails carving deep into wooden table tops (I could pull my hair out with that sound) - to croaking ghosts that want to make you curl up into a teeny tiny embryo under your duvet - but will that really keep you safe from the boogie monster?
|Miss, may I share this bed with you?|
Talking of things that go 'bump' in the night, what do you guys think of my ghastly alter ego AKA The Vampire Mad Hatteress? Fit for the role? :)
