Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up-This is the manga adaptation of the Japanese horror movie Ju-On, which was later remade for American audiences as The Grudge. Although fans of the movies will recognize some similarities-the house is haunted by the spirits of a mother and son who were murdered-the rest of the plot is different. The films focus on the house, while most of the action of the novel takes place at the local school. Much more attention is given to the new family here. The book opens with the murder of a woman and her son. Their house is soon sold to a new family. Each of the family members sees a creepy little boy and, soon after, each is attacked by a multitude of cats. The tale doesn't follow a linear time line, which lets readers learn more about the house and the grudge. The real-estate agent tries to sell the house, despite warnings about the evil there, and the prospective buyer dismisses the incidents as nothing more than childish pranks. The black-and-white artwork perfectly conveys the sense of foreboding. The eeriness and horror are conveyed in bold strokes, especially in the scenes at the school, where the mother's ghost is encountered.-Erin Dennington, Chantilly Regional Library, Fairfax County, VA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    MAINTAINS THE CREEPY FILM ATMOSPHERE

    'Ju-On: Video Side' is the Dark Horse Comics Manga adaptation of the original Japanese film 'Ju-On' which was remade for American audiences as 'The Grudge'. While there are some similarities in the stories such as the house haunted by the spirits of a mother and son that were murdered, the Japanese version differs with respect to most of the rest of the plot. Like the original film, this adaptation jumps around in time which can serve to disorient the reader a little bit. The general gist is that a new family has moved into this house and strange things begin to happen. They start seeing the creepy little boy at various turns...and the action is less centered on the house than it is in 'The Grudge'. Here the oldest son disappears while at school, prompting his girlfriend to go in looking for him. The daughter has a savage encounter with some cats and returns home missing a rather important part of her face. If you saw the Grudge then you probably know what I am referring to, and even in comic format it is still an effective, terrifying scene. As we shuttle back and forth in time we'll see the real estate agent trying to sell the house, even after his sister, a psychic, warns them about the evil in the home. When the new owner comes home from work one day he finds his wife cooking a rather grisly soup! I found Ju-On to be pretty remarkable in its ability to convey the terror from the film into comic format. The palpable feeling of evil is there, especially in the scenes at the school where the mother's ghost is encountered. This isn't easy to do, especially without the sound effects which played such a vital, unsettling role in the film. It's extremely well done although you may find yourself re-reading sections when the story jumps back and forth in time.
