In honor of the ten year anniversary of the release of the Japan's Ju-On franchise (known in the states as The Grudge), producers Takashi Shimizu and Taka Ichise decided to oversee two new entries in their undying ghost series. Naturally, American audiences wouldn't be interested in anything distinctly non-English, so Kadokawa Pictures saw fit to re-title the films Ju-On: White Ghost and Ju-On: Black Ghost. Never mind that American Audiences will probably take those two titles to have some kind of a racial connotation, what's amusing about the name changes are the official plot descriptions that accompanied the news.

Ju-On: White Ghost sounds like the standard "family torn apart by savage murders, their souls are now restless" conceit of the series, but Ju-On: Black Ghost...well, it's perhaps best that you read the official description. From Bloody Disgusting:

"Nurse Yuko (Ai Kago) is left in charge of a young girl named Fukie, and begins to experience strange things. Medical examination reveals that there is a 'cyst' in Fukie's body. The hatred of the unborn one is feeding off of the young girl, and curses the people around her. This is the grudge of someone that could not be born... Filled with an unimaginable 'hatred', people are killed one after the other with a curse. "
