According to the introductory note, "Ju-On" is a curse left behind by someone who dies in a powerful rage - a part haunting, part supernatural virus that infects anyone who comes into contact with it. More than just the premise, that's the plot in a nutshell.

Volunteer social worker Rika stumbles across the curse when she finds an almost catatonic old woman in a shambles of a home, a spooky little boy with a froggy voice and a veritable black hole of a phantom that seems to be sucking the life from the old lady. The story then jumps back and forth along the timeline in a series of chapters named for the characters haunted and hunted by the unsettled souls.

I watched this film because of it's american counterpart. I wanted to see the original since it's such a classic.
I did not enjoy this film at all, it's not that I don't like horror films I do or else I wouldn't have volunteered to watch it.
But this film is all over the place and very confusing. One moment your in the past, then the present, then the past again, the future and back to the present only to be brought to a future different then before.
The story is good but with all of the confusing time jumps I didn't have a chance to enjoy the film.
That being said it is a classic film so you should give it a chance, maybe you'll like it more then I did.
Happy Watching :)

I watched this movie as a horror fan, and I'm disappointed. The movie itself isn't bad, but it's quite confusing. The story isn't clear, and there's a lot of mysterious deaths(i guess?) bc i'm not even sure if they're dead, ghosts, curses or something else. Music is actually nice, it has some creepy note to it and acting is also fine.
You can watch it, you won't be bored, but you probably won't be scared too.
