The "Cursed House" of the Saeki family, who met a gruesome end... All who set foot within are cursed and will die. The long-running JU-ON/THE GRUDGE J-Horror franchise will reportedly come to an end with JU-ON -THE FINAL- (呪怨-ザ・ファイナル-, Juon -Za Fainaru-). The 11th film in the series will open June 20th at the Shinjuku Wald 9 and other cinemas across Japan from distributor Showgate. Alongside THE RING (リング, Ringu, 1998), JU-ON kicked off the Japanese Horror boom of the late 1990s. Created by Takashi Shimizu, the story was introduced in a pair of television shorts in 1998, then expanded in two direct-to-video films in 2000 before being launched as a theatrical series in 2002. In 2004, Shimizu directed the American adaptation THE GRUDGE for Sony Pictures, a box office hit that spawned both a theatrical and video sequel. After a five year hiatus, the series returned to Japanese cinemas last year with JU-ON: THE BEGINNING OF THE END (呪怨 -終わりの始まり-, Juon: Owari no Hajimari, 2014). Now BEGINNING OF THE END writer/director Masayuki Ochiai returns to conclude the story. Continued...
