Ju-On is a 2002 Japanese supernatural horror film written and directed by Takashi Shimizu. It depicts a young Japanese woman, Rika, who takes care of an old woman named Sachie. While she is at Sachie's house, Rika finds a young boy named Toshio. She eventually learns about a curse that anyone who enters the house will be killed by the spirit of Kayako. Rika must get herself out of the curse before it's too late. Ju-On is the original Japanese version on which the American film The Grudge (2006) is based. The Japanese version is arguably more intense than the later American version of the film. This film is rated R and is not recommended for children.
