It’s an odd, not completely unengaging show that tries hard to steer the franchise out of a rut by refusing to regurgitate much of the imagery we’ve come to associate with it but in its place, there’s something of an empty space instead.

In some regards, this messy but sporadically engaging series makes for the ideal embodiment of a film series that similarly struggled to remain compelling after the initial scares subsided.

If you have patience and the stomach for it, Ju-On: Origins a bold new direction for the franchise, carving out a new cinematic language and richer mythology while carving through its victims.

The best thing I could say about “Ju-On: Origins” is that it reminded me why this franchise just won’t die, while pointing to what it could look like for the next two decades.
