If you love Japanese horror, watch this. It is done wonderfully. If you like slasher or jump scare horror, I would still suggest it, but it might not be up your alley.

A return to a famous house that does not feel important, but somehow it achieves a decent level of dread. [Full review in Spanish].

...you might find yourself annoyed that the story is pretty inscrutable. All this to say I did enjoy JU-ON: Origins...but I wasn't as in love with it as I thought I'd be.
