The reboot of Grudge won’t be hitting the movie screens until next summer, with a new trailer most likely not debuting until next year although the first image for the film has been released by Sony which has got all fans really excited.
Based on 2002’s Ju-On: The Grudge by Takashi Shimazu, the film told the story of a man who murdered his own family after discovering his wife’s affair with someone else. The spirits inside the house are so powerful that they return from the grave to teach the man a lesson. Birthing a curse, the spirits will go on to kill almost anyone who inhabited the house.
While The Ring kicked off the Asian horror remake trend of the 2000’s, the Ju-On franchise has a lot more feature films, video games and comic books.
Star Lin Shaye has promised that this wouldn’t be just another horror movie, but the most horrifying film of her entire career.
“Wait until you see this. It’s the scariest movie I’ve ever been a part of, not even maybe. Not even maybe,” Shaye shared with ComicBook.com. “And it’s the scariest part I’ve ever had, bar none. I think it comes out next August, I’m very excited about it. The horror fans are going to go insane, that I can promise.”
Shaye credited director Nicolas Pesce for his vision of the new incarnation.
“What will make it really different is Nicolas Pesce, who is the writer/director, who is extraordinary. I mean he’s a real visionary,” Shaye admitted. “I had a phenomenal time working with him. He was very open to my ideas, which he told me he never is. He said, ‘I don’t usually let actors do what they want.’ He said, ‘But in your case, there were no rules.’ I was inspired. The ideas I came up with were inspired by what he was creating. And he acknowledged that and allowed it.”
Grudge remake also stars John Cho, Andrea Riseborough and Demian Bichir.
