The upcoming reboot of The Grudge from Nicholas Pesce is on the way for early next year and, as promised, the official trailer for the film was released early this morning. This first footage doesn’t pull many punches and teases plenty of scares, including a few that harken back to the original film. Give it a watch above and read on for more details on the movie.
Set in America, the reboot follows a police officer in a new town who comes across a seemingly-unexplainable case that leads her to a house that has been cursed by a vengeful ghost, dooming all who enter with a violent death.
The Grudge is directed by Nicholas Pesce, who also wrote the screenplay with a writing credit additionally going to Jeff Buhler. Starring is Andrea Riseborough (Mandy, Black Mirror), Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight, The Nun), John Cho (Star Trek films, The Twilight Zone reboot), Betty Gilpin (GLOW), Lin Shaye (Insidious), and Jacki Weaver (Bird Box).
The film is expected to hit theaters on January 3rd, 2020. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates until then!
