- Get the corpse from the well.

- Yes, sir.

Mr Yamamura.

Don't. I haven't seen her

since she was a child.

The well was on Dr Ikuma's estate.

It was sealed when they

sold the place 30 years ago...

...and it was never opened after that.

But that is Sadako.

There's no record of a "Sadako", not

in Dr Ikuma's or the mother's family.

What happened to Dr Ikuma?

He died right after

the place was sold.

I'm the only one left alive.

Burn her! Dispose of the ashes

wherever you want.

I'm afraid that's not possible.

It's a very strange case.

One of the people who found her

is dead, and the other's vanished.

And there's one more thing...

The time of death.

According to the autopsy

she died only a year or two ago.


That means that she was alive

down there the entire time...

For 30 years.

Everyone's talking about

this "video curse".

What happens in it?

I've heard that it's a creepy woman-

- who tells you that you will die

in one week's time.

They say she appears if you watch TV

late at night. Then the phone rings.

TV? What channel?

- Some localstation in Izu.

- Izu?

Do you really want to use this?

Why not?

You die if you don't

show it to someone within a week...

We'll have to get someone

to say that on camera.

- Still no word from Reiko?

- No.

The police called about her.

Is Asakawa Reiko here?

No, not at the moment.

Everyone's talking about

this "video curse".

What happens in it?

I've heard that it's a creepy woman-

- who tells you that you will die

in one week's time.

Excuse me!

Do you know what this is all about?

We haven't heard from her.

- A man named Takayama Ryuji died.

- Takayama?

Ms Asakawa's ex-husband.

The police have been here, too.

She's been gone for days.

- Have they been inside?

- No. They never asked.

Go ahead.

Ms Takano...

What's that?

A videotape?

Forgive me, father!

I had to save Yoichi.

Are you okay?

She asked me about a video

when I saw her...

She's a single mother, so they

don't assign her important stories.

That's right! Her boy!

He was in school...

- Ms Asakawa?

- She's not here right now.

This is the police. Ms Asakawa's

father was found dead this morning.

- Where's Mr Kadokura?

- Over there.

- Sir?

- Yes?

- Omuta, Shizuoka Police.

- Thanks for coming.

- Have you found the daughter?

- No.

- The woman in the well?

- We're reconstructing the face.

We're going to make a model

and ask around the area.

He found the body.

Hang on...

Do you want to see him?

People don't usually die like that.

- Are you recording something?

- Yes.

We're wondering if it

has anything to do with this note.

Reiko, I got rid of the tape.

There's nothing to worry about now.

He's been absent

more than ten days.

- What's the matter?

- Nothing.

Why are you looking for Reiko?

I want to find out

why Professor Takayama died.

I'll check around.

I'll call you if I find anything.


- Yes?

- It's the police.

I know it's late, but I'd like to ask

about Takayama Ryuji.

- Ms Takano Mai? First on the scene?

- Yes.

Can I come in?


That's right... Professor Takayama

taught math, didn't he?

- And you are...?

- His assistant.

Have you ever heard of

Yamamura Sadako?

- No.

- Her mother Shizuko?

- No.

- Ikuma Heihachiro?


Takayama Ryuji and Asakawa Reiko

were looking for something, right?

- I'm afraid I don't know.

- I see.

Asakawa Reiko's father

was found dead today.

In a similar state to Professor

Takayama. Do you know what I mean?

Go away, please.

They'd found a corpse in a well.

A woman who died a year or two ago.
