Ju-on: Kuroi Shojo (2009)

aka: Ju-on: Black Ghost / The Grudge: Girl In Black

The Ju-on series continues, this time as two short films each one hour in length; the other is reviewed here.
Kuroi Shōjo is the weaker of the two. It has that terrifying guttural noise that makes my skin crawl, but the remainder of the scares are predictable and lacklustre. The story would've been an interesting premise on paper, but it’s pretty shitty onscreen. Even though there were moments near the end that showed promise for the director’s future, as a horror it fell flat. It's one for Japanese horror-loving completists only.
