This film re-establishes Kayako as the primary antagonist of the Ju-On/Grudge franchise, after serving as a secondary villain in the two most recent installments prior to the crossover. See more »
When Yuri is taking a shower (around the 58:16 mark), her hair is all soapy with shampoo and is on the top of her head; the very next moment it appears all rinsed, down around her shoulders and only damp, not sopping wet. See more »

Sadako is an evil that curses and kills anyone who watches her video. Those seeking to stop her from collecting her victims are also killed. Kayako is an evil who kills anyone who comes into the house where she was murdered. Her son Toshio, who was murdered at the same time, is also an evil being that helps his mother but doesn't have her strength.
In this film we see Sadako and Kayako's latest marks trying to find a way to avoid their demise. A man and young girl with special abilities try to help the girls by having Sadako and Kayako fight each other. Each victim adds to their number of kills and they both want these victims for themselves.
Ok. So, I love both these characters. Both ladies can hold their own when it comes to being creepy, evil and decent body counts. I would assume that this is the Japanese version of Freddy vs. Jason. I love that this is creative but this is creepy horror as opposed to blood and gore horror and folks should understand that before watching it.
I thought this was written well and the acting was ok. I liked it but I was also disappointed in some ways. We didn't get to see much of Sadako or Kayako and what we did see was so dark it took away from seeing them duke it out. I understand that the low lighting is used to help set the mood and keep some of the effects from looking cheesy but I wanted to see more of what they were working with. I wanted to see these two really fight. It also seemed as though they were setting things up for a sequel and while that's great and I'll watch it if they make one, I wish the story could have had a bit more depth.
It's not a bad film but like I said, I was a little disappointed. If you like these characters check it out. I hope they make another one.
