Repetitive for old Ju-on fans, exciting for new fans
28 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie last night and I have finally seen the entire Ju-on franchise. It is without a doubt the scariest horror franchise there is. There are 11 movies in total, 8 Japanese ones and 3 American ones. A 12th movie in 4D, which is a cross-over with the famous Ringu franchise, is set to be released in July in Japan.

As far as the Ju-on storyline goes, this is the first sequel to the Ju-on reboot from 2014 and it is a quite a good effort, if you look past the repetitive nature of the movies. What is clear about this movie from the first few minutes of the movie, is that this movie has a lot of jump scares as opposed to its Japanese predecessors. It has almost completely abandoned its reliance on atmosphere, but it's still there to be found. However, it doesn't exploit these moments like Western cinema does, which is a good thing.

Due to the fact that there have been so many Ju-on movies, I didn't think this movie was as scary or frightening as the other movies were. There is something called over-exposure which leads to desensitization. The scares were pretty good in this but none of them got to me, unfortunately.

Definitely avoid the trailer if possible, as a part of it shows you the last seconds of the movie. Had this not happened, the ending would've been more terrifying.

Hopefully Kayako Vs Sadako will be filled with plenty of atmosphere like the previous Ju-on movies were instead of having to rely on jump scares.
