Day #21,996

Walk km 10074-10081 (11,915 to go): Commercial to Renfrew Station and VCC Clark to Main Street Station

Movie #1995: Ju-on (2000, Takashi Shimizu)

This is what you get when you enter "English subtitles" into Google and then do a video search.
This is a direct-to-video movie about ghosts and black cats and evil spirits and haunted houses and lots of bloody bodies. I'm not sure if this would make any sense to a Japanese horror connoisseur but it made none to me.
After looking at IMDB: I was amazed to find that instead of a direct-to-video that only a handful of people have seen, this is actually a very popular movie with tons of reviews and comments on IMDB. Supposedly, this movie was made twice: once in 2000 and again in 2002 (same director). The 2002 is even more popular than the original.
