Ju-on Beginning of the End 2014
Director Masayuki Ochiai brings us the seventh installment to the Ju-on franchise with Ju-on: Beginning of the End (2014). One of the best asian horror movie franchises so I am definitely stoked to see the film. Right in the beginning we see the spooky little boy. This is an official must see trailer packed with scary scenes. Starring in Ju-on: Beginning of the End is Nozomi Sasaki, Yoshihiko Hakamada and Misaki Saisho.
Synopsis: An elementary school teacher named Yui visits the home of a boy named Toshio Saeki who’s been absent from school for a long period of time. When she arrives, she re-lives the horrific tragedy which occurred in the Saeki household 10 years earlier. A cardboard box left in a closet holds the key to revealing a long-hidden truth.
Description from the Fantasia International Film Festival: "Young teacher Yui Ikuno is offered a substitute position following the sudden departure of a third-grade teacher. If the opportunity fills her with happiness, her student Toshio's repeated absenteeism quickly taints the experience. Her calls to the young student's home remain unanswered, and Yui goes there in person to enquire about his condition. Toshio's mother, Kayoko, reacts strangely, to say the least, and a child's voice convinces the teacher to go look at the kid's bedroom, which she finds, much to her surprise, condemned. Following this visit, worrying phenomena starts happening around Yui. Turns out Kayoko and Toshio's house is home to sordid secrets and all that dare enter it fall victim to the curse that haunts it. ¶ Such a rumour proves attractive to young schoolgirls looking for a thrill. Aoi hears from her older sister that the house she is trying to sell might be haunted, so she brings three of her friends to visit - and get a little scared. Amongst the group, Nanami is the most reticent to enter, but her friends ridicule her into following them. It is a poor decision, as her future, as well her friends', becomes seriously compromised... ¶ Fans of classic J-Horror, rejoice! The curse of Kayoko and Toshio is back! This new entry in the JU-ON series offers a fresh starting point, much like SADAKO 3D. Unlike that reinterpretation of the RINGU trilogy, however, JU-ON: THE BEGINNING OF THE END closely follows the narrative structure of its predecessors and through this, speaks directly to fans of the series and to our greatest enjoyment! The director and co-writer Masayuki Ochiai (HYPNOSIS) brings us back to the haunted house and reinstates, slowly but surely, its oppressive atmosphere through a refined and efficient use of mise-en-scene. On screenwriting duties, he is aided by Taka Ichise, a specialist in Japanese horror whose wealth of credits as a producer ranges from classics like RINGU and JU-ON: THE GRUDGE to lesser-known gems such as NOR via gomorrahizer
