Ju-on

SO. I finally grow the guts to watch this movie and..... it's not very scary. I don't know what I was expecting, really, but it was so hard to follow, plus I had quite a bit of trouble telling one skinny pretty Japanese lady from another (buh? I thought she just died? What?). Maybe the English version's scarier with the snazzy graphics and black, glazed eyes. The only movie that's managed to scare the bejeezus out of me recently is the original version of Dark Water. The no-sleeping-for-three-days-and-in- short-intervals-with-the -lights-on kind of scary. It works so well because you hardly ever see the ghost, just the tangible things it leaves behind. And ceiling stains are just plain eerie. Anyway.... long, black stringy hair is suddenly the new Scary Thing? Don't look at my drain. You'd die. *crooooooooooooak*



I'm using Bloglines and I still can't keep up with the hundred or so blogs I follow. Sigh.

Hahaha! I totally agree. I saw the Grudge, and while creepy, it doesn't really have much of a bite to it. The sequel looks a lot worse. The cat noises are actually humorous. Heh. Anyway, Great pic. I love your stuff.

I still havent seen this movie, probably wont, I am not a horror/suspense/thriller kinda guy...

Great drawing!! Made me laugh :D

LFW said...

yes, long black stringy hair is scary, and small children seem to be the new scary as well.

seems weird to me, I mean, children in general are not scary, just annoying.

And yeah, really creepy, gorey, horror stuff just is not my thing, I rather do something else. Good work on growing some guts.

Funny pictures also, you have the potential to be a great talent :P

your fan

That kid looks awesome.

And yeah, I didn't think Ju-On was very scary either. For my money, The Exorcist still makes me squirm, but I think it's mostly because of the trauma it caused me when I first watched it at a very young age.

Kevin Dalton said...

japanese horror remakes are so in nowadays, funny though if they just looked at the movies and used what makes them so creepy and made their OWN movies they wouldn't have to remake em. but coming up with new ideas is to much yah know? >_>

lovely work as always~

The American version of the Ring was pretty darn scary in my book.

However, the Grudge doesn't quite do it for me... I just think of those darn dead kids as little Smurfs.

CHRIS GEORGE said...

Clio, I love your take on the two characters from Ju-on. Great color & design.

Oh, and the American version of the movie... I just saw it. It was kinda lame.
