    Reader comments on Ju-on: The Grudge

    Subject: Re: true story
    Date: Dec 12, 2011
    Sender: JimmyPrevious | Next

    Many people do not believe in these things because they have not experienced it. When I was 13 I tried killing myself with pain killers and I was dead for 23 minutes. Then I was revived. I started to see things I never seen before and had a psyhic ability. At my school a student hung himself in the school theatre a long time ago because he did not get a role in macbeth...whenever there was a macbeth play he was always hanging from the balcony. Ive seen, felt and heard things. Most of these ghosts are harmless, they are looking for help, or comfort, or to find out what happened, some cannot move on

    Re: true story

    According to most legends, myths, and possible happenings, especially among the asian population probably because we are more spiritual, the ghost in the movie matches the EXACT, (not kidding cause i overheard my dad and uncle talking about how it was good to be in America when i was little...I'll never forget...), description given to me by grandparents with their own experiences and relatives who claimed to have seen it and heard it back in the homeland (I was born in the U.S. and they were originally from the Thailand,Laos, and Vietnam area). They said they saw something that looked like a child but made a different sound, like that of a cat, long black hair, and big eyes that just stared and never blinked. (They were out hunting when they saw it.) What they say sounds to be very believable because they say that it was a personal experience and there were also other people who were there too. Besides...many other peoplehave claimed to see the EXACT same thing. All in all...maybe it is real...maybe it is not...It's probably just make believe to keep people away from certain places, right?...
