Screener Squad: JU-ON: Origins

JU-ON: Origins Miniseries Review


The Grudge franchise is having a two-for year as first they put out a new American reboot film (that we didn’t screen but reportedly is not exactly essential watching) and now this Netflix cross-production that purports to tell the origin story of the famous Japanese haunted house and the murderous ghosts within. I use the term ‘purports’ because out of Chris, Bradly, Harmoni, and Ryan, not one of them could really tell you how this miniseries made this already confusing franchise anything but more confusing. Check out their review here.
