But I don’t want to confirm that or else I might find it hard to sleep at night for a week. I’ve known that Japanese horror films are really scary. Not only are these people great with prosthetics, they’re also good in the so-called timing. They know it when to break a glass, when to let go of a scream, and most of all they know when the exact time to show off a scary figure is. I heard that these movies were really scary.

Another noticeable difference is that in the TV version, the individual episodes are more centered around the characters of the victims, whereas the cinematic versions revolve more around the concept of the haunted house. Thusly, they appear to be a bit more coherent, which definitely makes the story easier to follow. The American versions are both based on events happening in the first Japanese cinematic version (with some additional concepts and "typical American horror movie" themes thrown in), whereas Ju-On: The Grudge 2 (the second Japanese installment for the cinema) introduces completely new material that doesn't appear in either American installment. However, there's much more of Japanese symbolism that makes parts of the movie hard to understand (for example, concepts of reincarnation and karma). If you can only get one of the Japanese movies, I'd still suggest getting this one, as it adds most to whole mythology.

I always assumed the Sarah Michelle Gellar version was simply a translation of the original Japanese movie. But it sounds like instead the movies are more retellings of the story instead of literal remakes. That’s something that seems to be a very Japanese thing – I’ve seen Japanese movies based on television series that feature the same characters and basic plot but with very different twists and settings. It’s really interesting to see how these retellings compare, and I’d love to watch all six Grudge / Ju-On movies to see how they stack up against each other. I’m really interested in how the originals and the cinema versions stack up against each other. Do you know why they didn’t simply release or re-film the original two movies instead of creating new ones?
