) horror franchise. Japanese model and actress Sasaki Nozomi will play the lead role.

An elementary school teacher named Yui visits the home of a boy named Toshio Saeki who's been absent from school for a long period of time. When she arrives, she re-lives the horrific tragedy which occurred in the Saeki household 10 years earlier. A cardboard box left in a closet holds the key to revealing a long-hidden truth.
Ju-on originally started as a low-budget, made-for-TV film series. Its huge popularity sparked a wave of more and less successful sequels and remakes both in Japan and in Hollywood.
