(I have not seen all of the Japanese Ju-on films, but I've seen most)

And the American films are most likely not going to be cannon. The first is a pretty direct remake.

And regardless of quality, I don't think it can reach the lows of the third American Grudge film.

Yeah I agreed. As far as I know, Japanese films can't hold up to Hollywood nor their neighbor's film industry. I mean I seen films from South Korea and Mainland China that can probably outdo Japanese one in term of production values, budget, and cinematography. It doesn't help that most of the recent Japanese films are not being exported outside of Japan. I mean even streaming sites like Dramafever (which has both Korean and Chinese film catalog don't have any Japanese film aside from some catalog of J-dramas). So I'm not sure if Ju-on: The final film will get a US release.
