Generally there are very few films which are impressive in horror genre but this one is surely one of the finest attempts by Japanese Director Takashi Shimizu to make you feel horror with fine visual & sound effects.

The film is a remake of a Japanese film ‘Ju-on” made by Shimizu & stays in many horror film lovers favorite list. The film is based on Japanese mythical premise that when a person dies in extreme sorrow or rage, emotions remain becoming a stand upon that place. Death becomes a part of that place killing everything it touches. Once you are part of it, it will never let you go. Shimizu has done well job by weaving mysterious & strange incidents on the same myth with some creative gory visuals & spine chilling sound effects. The plot of the film is told through a non-linear sequence of events with certain other sub-plots.

Recommended to all who haven’t seen it yet.

Ratings- 7/10
