"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.

Harase Kyoto (Noriko Sakai) is a successful horror movie actress but is afraid of being typecast in that genre. Now that she and her boyfriend Masahi are expecting a baby and are looking forward to their forthcoming wedding she is deciding whether to retire from acting because she can't break out of horror movies and that's not what she wants to do entirely.

Then following a guest appearance on a TV paranormal show filmed on location at an apparently haunted house and scene of a grisly murder, all the film crew are either murdered or disappear. Harase's boyfriend is killed in a traffic accident and she suffers a miscarriage. But when Harase visits her gynaecologist she is told everything is fine with her pregnancy... so just what is she pregnant with?
