Kudo, the director of a film studio, has traveled around the country investigating all sorts of urban legends and supernatural phenomena. One day, he receives a video in the mail. In it is an account of "Curse Village", a remote abandoned village in the mountains. A film crew heads to the village to look into the rumors that anyone who visits will go crazy and never be heard from again, but... This is the theatrical version of the popular series that goes in a different direction from conventional horror.
Sayo moves with her mother from Tokyo to the rural town her grandmother lives in. On her first day at her new high school, a classmate named Maho is the first person to come out and talk to her. Maho, however, is the girl everyone bullies. Not wanting to lose the good graces of her classmates, Sayo finds herself unable to help Maho. She goes home with her classmates, but returns to the school out of concern for Maho, who's been locked in the bathroom. When she gets there, she finds Maho, still locked away -- but dead. This tragedy, however, is only the beginning of the horrific incident about to happen at school.
