The Grudge (Ju-On) in October

Premier Asia have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Grudge (Ju-on) on 4th October 2004 priced at £12.99. JU-ON: a curse born of a grudge held by someone who dies in the grip of powerful anger. It gathers in the places frequented by that person in life, working its spell on those who come into contact with it and thus creating itself anew. Now… the chain of horror begins…

Written and directed by Shimizu Takashi this horror phenomenon has already inspired an equally frightening sequel and a big budget Hollywood remake. Released on DVD with a low-price RRP of just £12.99 many of the extras previously hinted at are no longer present, but with retailers such as listing a more expensive two-disc set for February it would seem the full two-disc edition is still in production.

For now, the single-disc special collector's edition will offer the following:

  • Digitally remastered and restored 16:9 anamorphic presentation (enhanced for widescreen TVs)
  • Dual language format (original Japanese language version with remastered English subtitles and English dubbed version)
  • Optional DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 audio
  • SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • Audio commentary by Asian cinema expert Bey Logan
