A Horror Classic
2004's The Grudge (a remake of the original Japanese film, Ju-on: The Grudge made in 2002) is considered a modern horror classic. Told in a nonlinear, The Grudge tells the story of an American exchange student played by Sarah Michelle Geller who stumbles upon a terrible curse. If you ever wondered if screaming ghost children with way too much hair are terrifying, the answer is YES. The film spawned two terrible sequels, but the original (well, the first remake) holds up.
A New Reboot
Well, The Grudge is getting a reboot, and it looks even more terrifying than the original. Starring John Cho and Andrea Riseborough, this new take by producer Sam Riami might be even more chilling if the new trailer is any indication.
Could It Be Even Scarier Than The Last?
Twitter is blowing up over the trailer, and the response is largely positive. While the trailer does feature the classic hand coming out of the head gag, it also has a lot more blood than the original. This new vision ups the ante and goes for an R-rating, so expect more gore along the way. The film hits theaters on January 31st, 2020. Will you be watching?
