All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Ju-On: Black Ghost / White Ghost (2009)

AKA: Ju-On Kuroi Shojo / Ju-on Shiroi Rojo

Director: Mari Asato and Ryûta Miyake


Premise:
Two short movies surrounded the myth of Ju-On, the idea that when a person with a deep grudge the curse can manifest and take on a life of its on and anyone who runs into a ghost killed by this curse is then killed which allows it to spread.


Black Ghost has a woman losing her unborn child then finding a cyst that is part of her unborn twin consumed in her mother's womb.
White Ghost sees a man murder his family then committing suicide with a recorded message.

My Take:
I love the concept of the Ju-On but it's starting to be a bit much. Both shorts have their issues and some good qualities including some nice scares.
If you're a fan of series then give these a watch, if not then move on. White Ghost is probably the better of the two.

Rating: In the middle
