Trailer Reaction | The Grudge

It’ll never let you go

The Grudge (2020)

Plot: A house is cursed by a vengeful ghost that dooms those who enter it with a violent death.

Director: Nicolas Pesce

Starring: Betty Gilpin, Andrea Riseborough, Lin Shaye, John Cho

Genre: Horror

Release Date: January 31st 2020

As someone that loves the original Japanese Grudge films and found the early ’00’s American remakes to be more than adequate, it’s hardly a surprise to see a reboot in the works, especially given the films ability to scare you with only a death rattle.

Before watching the trailer I knew this film is set to be filled with jump scares, creepy visuals and dread, all three of which I wasn’t disappointed to see appear in the trailer and while I do prefer my horror to largely jump scare-free, sometimes a popcorn scare-fest is just what the doctor ordered. I’m also excited to see John Cho in another dramatic role after thoroughly enjoying him in Searching.

Reminds me of: Devil, Ghost Stories, The Ritual
