How can the curse that generated over ten years of horror films be lifted in the sequel of a prequel? We’ve got a serious anachronism, here… Confused? Just wait! You should watch Ju-On: The Beginning of the End before seeing this. This movie uses an embarrassing amount of flashbacks from the previous film to make sure we’re not lost. Fans of the franchise will know where this is going, regardless.
The worst element of Ju-On: The Beginning of the End is present here as well; a daunting investigation on the infamous curse that overexposes a conundrum better left unsolved. Most of us are here for highly imaginative scares, good make-up, creepy sounds and ground-breaking effects. This movie generally prefers dialog, procedurals and twists that aren't twists at all.
The movie is well lit, well shot, well directed and the actors are convincing. Every technical aspect of this production is outstanding, aside the script. The first half of the story is slow, but things fortunately pick up in the second one. Do we eventually reach a previously unmatched apex and a satisfying resolution justifying a title like "The Final Curse"? I won’t spoil it for you…
