WHITE GHOST In a certain house, a son who failed the bar examination kills five members of his family one by one. He then dies by hanging himself. At the moment of his death, he made a cassette tape recording in which he can be heard saying "I`ll go. I`ll go soon..." On the same tape can be heard the eerie sound of a young girl`s voice. The curse of The Grudge has been re-awakened. BLACK GHOST Nurse Yuko is left in charge of a young girl named Fukie, and begins to experience strange things. Medical examination reveals that there is a ?cyst` in Fukie`s body. The hatred of the unborn one is feeding off of the young girl, and cursing the people around her.
