Another one of the first contemporary classics in 21st-century Japanese cinema, directed by Takashi Shimizu, who filmed the same story three times: a few years earlier with a video version, this cinema version and then a United States remake starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, as well as the sequels to the first two. A social worker goes to a house where a bedridden old woman lives alone. The place is a bit hair-raising, and the woman appears to be terrified, but the degenerative disease she suffers from prevents her from communicating and she lives in a sort of limbo. Later on, the young girl contacts Toshio and his mother, Kayako, murdered years earlier.
