Ju-on: The Grudge Theme (Keyboard Cover)



Ju-on: The Grudge
In my opinion, Ju-on is the scariest horror movie series on earth. In the past I love to watch Ju-on, thinking that it's so freaking exciting. I don't think my heart can take that excitement right now. Haha... And I easily get goose bumps just by seeing some ghost randomly appears in the screen even when I don't listen to the sound. And if I do, I would probably punch the monitor.

Japanese are so creative in coming up with the freaky horror movie ideas. There're basically two scary half-dead ghosts (I don't know how to define because they're physically touchable onryō's).

One is the mother (Kayako) who's so strong that she crawls all the way from the compartment beneath the roof and above the cupboard, through the staircase, just to kill someone by dragging them to the 'dark side'. She's known with her frog-croaking mourn.

The other one is the son (Toshio) who's always half-naked and somehow associated with a black cat. He's also quite creepy because of this big eyes and powdered face.

Well, the purpose of this post is to share my rendition of the Ju-on main theme, which is some creepy melody on piano and a bit on strings. The original one has this effect that improves the creepiness with its increasing volume, which I didn't include in my rendition because its not really instrumental.

The atmosphere in the video is edited in Adobe Premiere Pro because I was afraid that I would be freaked out by myself if I used such low lighting. And finally, my outfit is to make myself look like a reaper, although it seems to fail because its just a jacket. Haha...

Enjoy. I think it'll only give you the heebie jeebies if you watch it alone with low lighting.
Not very advisable to watch before going to bed.
