New Release: Ju-on White Ghost/Black Ghost Blu-ray and DVD

Ju-on: White Ghost/Black Ghost movie scene

There's more J-horror lurking on the horizon in Ju-on: White Ghost/Black Ghost.

Well Go USA released two Japanese horror films bearing the Ju-on name in a two-movie package. Ju-On: White Ghost / Black Ghost, consisting of the 2009 films The Grudge: Old Lady in White and The Grudge: Girl in Black, was released on Blu-ray and DVD on May 17, 2011.

The two movies are not official sequels to the Takashi Shimizu’s original Ju-on films from the early 2000s (which launched the J-horror craze and a slew of American remakes in the U.S., which has since settled down a bit). Still, they both look to be pretty creepy and complete with the ghostly, scary-as-hell images of long-haired children that frightened the hell out of us when we first saw the films years ago.

Here are quick synopses of the two films:

Ju-on: White Ghost directed by Ryuta Miyake revolves around a cassette tape made by a young murderer just at the moment that he was committing suicide. His eerie voice on the tape proves to be pretty powerful on its own when it awakens the spirit of a young girl he had previously murdered.

In Ju-on: Black Ghost, directed by Mari Asato, a nurse left in charge of a young girl begins to experience strange visions and occurrences, prompting a medical examination with reveals malignant and evil cyst

Both films played in theaters in their native Japan and across Asia but arrived on U.S. shores as DVD premieres.

The Blu-ray and DVD of Ju-On: White Ghost / Black Ghost carry the list prices of $26.98 and $19.98, respectively.
