The Hollywood Reporter
Director Takashi Shimizu chooses cruel psychological suspense over gore and succeeds in spinning a minimal plot into a panorama of malice. Full Review
Dave Kehr
The New York Times
Because there is a new hero to identify with every 10 minutes, the viewer isn't drawn into a sustained suspense, but is merely subjected to a series of more or less foreseeable shocks. Full Review
Derek Elley
A haunted-house one-trick pony. Full Review
Jami Bernard
New York Daily News
Its shapelessness and the cultural differences in acting style will keep this version filed under "cult oddity." Full Review
Jonathan Curiel
San Francisco Chronicle
Bluntly speaking, Ju-On is anything but frightening. Ridiculous. Unbelievable. Unintentionally funny. It might as well be a parody of a horror film. Full Review
