It looks like The Grudge will continue with an all-new reboot of the franchise. Nicolas Pesce is directing this next iteration, which will once again be produced by The Evil Dead director Sam Raimi. While there isn’t too much known about the film yet, there was a teaser trailer unveiled at NYCC. Luckily ComicBook.com reported what exactly happened in the trailer for those unable to attend. Read The Grudge trailer description down below!
Here’s what they were able to describe from the trailer, which sounds like a truly dark and horrific vision:
The first Footage is done much like IT: Chapter Two’s first trailer, featuring a scene of Riseborough’s detective investigating the home of Shaye’s elderly lady character. The detective quickly discerns something is wrong, as Shaye is shown to be disheveled and panicked, eventually revealing blackened, severed fingers on one hand, and the maggot-ridden corpse of her husband seated in a chair.
A montage of footage plays that shows the familiar iconography of the series, with a shower scene and ghost hands featuring John Cho, and the familiar sight of the horrible long-haired ghost girl rising up from watery depths. There’s also a lot of shots of real bloody injury and death being featured, hammering home that this an R-rated version of The Grudge that fans hoped for.
In the new film which occurs concurrently with the 2004 American remake also titled The Grudge…
The new plot finds Andrea Riseborough (MANDY) as a cop in a new town who comes across a seemingly-unexplainable case that leads her to a house that has been grudged.
The Grudge will bring a new curse to theaters on January 3, 2020.
