Japanese independent movie producer Takashige Ichise, whose films such as "Ringu," "Dark Water" and "Ju-on: The Grudge" have or will be soon remade by Hollywood had this interesting comment. " It's a shame that more Japanese films are not seen abroad. The problem is the budgets are not so big in Japan. So unless you spend the appropriate amount, the films just won't appeal to foreign markets." It's a shame that the Hollywood studios just don't spend a pretty penny on a good marketing campaign and release the original.
