Ghost House Pictures Developing Another Installment of 'The Grudge'

The Grudge

Frankly, I'm not sure that anyone out there is still paying attention since the last attempt to keep the franchise going in 2009 was a straight-to-video sequel, but apparently Ghost House Pictures and Mandate are currently working on another installment of The Grudge horror series. However, this new film will be actually be series a reboot. This comes after the weird history behind the franchise which originated with two Japanese television movies called Ju-On. Japanese sequels followed, and after The Ring remake hit theaters, the series was prime for the American remake with Sarah Michelle Gellar we know today.

Since then The Grudge 2 was apparently thought to be good enough to hit theaters in 2006, but since The Grudge 3 video release in 2009, the series looked ready to be taken out back and shot. Of course, Bloody Disgusting is saying that The Grudge will simply be rebooted, but without any details as to how or, more importantly, why. After several less successful American remakes of Japanese horror films hit after the surprising reception of The Ring (films like Dark Water and One Missed Call among them), I was glad to see the trend die down, but for some reason this franchise keeps limping forward. However, there's a chance this reboot could also go straight-to-video, so it might not even matter.

    Damn Ethan! That screen grab is freaking me out!
  • I love this franchise, I'll watch it even if it's bad. I don't care at this point. Even the straight to dvd managed to scare me on a FTV so, they're doing something right for me :)

    I used to be afraid of that crawling woman and the meowing they are like my eccentric neighbors and I pay them no attention. Let them make another, I'm sure the universe won't implode.

  • In the office alone and the screen shot is giving me the creeps. 
  • Why reboot this classic. I really enjoyed the grudge. It was one of the very few horror movies that actually had effective spooky scenes.
