That eerie croaking noise is back in the official trailer for the latest take on The Grudge. The full trailer warns “when someone dies in the grip of rage, a curse is born. Once you enter, it will never let you go.”
The cast includes Andrea Riseborough (The Kindness of Strangers), Oscar nominee Demián Bichir (A Better Life), John Cho (The Exorcist), and Betty Gilpin (GLOW). Lin Shaye (Insidious: The Last Key) and two-time Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook, Animal Kingdom) also star in the 2020 horror film.
The R-rated thriller comes from producers Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Taka Ichise. Nicolas Pesce wrote and directed this version of The Grudge, based on the Ju-On: The Grudge written and directed by Takashi Shimizu. Nathan Kahane, Erin Westerman, Brady Fujikawa, Andrew Pfeffer, Roy Lee, Doug Davison, John Powers Middleton and Schuyler Weiss served as executive producers.
Sony and Screen Gems are targeting a January 3, 2020 theatrical release.
