i must say,stick with the Jap version,it's much better than whatever hollywood churns out.
You people do realise that Takashi Shimizu made both the original Juon quartet and this "hollywood" "remake" not too mention he used the majority of his original sets as well as outside of the lead roles all the same actors.
Outside of Monetary backing and a few American faces this is a Japanese film all the way... With Takashi Shimizu being granted un-precedented freedom to do as he liked in making this Movie by its backers.
You also say - the original is better
Which original is that?
This latest film is not a remake of JUON: The Grudge - It is a combined hash of all four previous films (Juon , Juon 2 , Juon: The Grudge , Juon: The Grudge 2 )
Its a combination, Not a remake and that is the mistake Takashi Shimizu made here, not to mention him seemingly getting a bit carried away with having a bigger budget and thoughts of granduer at getting his shot at the world wide market
