Red-Band Trailer For ‘The Grudge’ Released by Sony

Sony Pictures has released the red-band trailer for The Grudge, the latest attempt at a remake of the 2004 Japanese ghost feature Ju-On: The Grudge.  And just like the original, this film looks like it will creep the hell out of you (as well as give you pause entering someone else’s house.)  The trailer can be seen below.

The Grudge, this time produced by the great Sam Raimi (Drag Me To Hell, the Evil Dead franchise) and directed by Nicolas Pesce (The Eyes of My Mother), is based on the modern horror classic of the same name which was written by Takashi Shimizu.  The original film spawned an American remake in 2004, followed by two decreasingly-successful sequels.  Shimizu directed the first two, but was just credited as a writer on The Grudge 3.  He is listed as a writer on the latest picture as well, as it is based on the original screenplay.  The American films grossed nearly $260 million worldwide, but nearly 75% of that total came from the first film in 2004.

The cast of The Grudge includes Lin Shaye (Insidious, Ouija: Origin of Evil) and John Cho (Harold and Kumar, 2018’s Searching), along with a host of younger-trending performers.  The story, much like the original remakes, revolves around a house inhabited by an evil spirit that curses anyone that steps foot inside.  As each person suffers a horrible death, the survivors try to find a way to break the deadly cycle for good.  Hopefully the new version will not have that kid that would meow at the victims.

The Grudge is scheduled to hit theaters nationwide on January 3rd, 2020.
