The Grudge

It's been 10 years since The Grudge hit theaters in 2004, and in the horror world that means it's time for a reboot. Deadline has word that the Takashi Shimazu horror film starring Sarah Michelle Gellar will get the remake treatment courtesy of Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures banner and Good Universe. Midnight Meat Train writer Jeff Buhler is behind the script, but a director hasn't been hired yet for the project. The film followed Gellar as a nurse living and working in Tokyo, who is exposed to a mysterious supernatural curse that locks a person in a powerful rage before claiming their life and spreading to another. Read on!

Since the Raimi-produced remake of his own cult classic Evil Dead proved to be pretty decent, this might not be a bad idea. The Grudge was one of many films from the 2000s that remade Japanese horror films for American audiences (it was based on Ju-On). We just wish studios would take more chances on original horror rather than relying on bringing back the same killers, monsters and stories from the past. But it wouldn't be Hollywood if there weren't remakes every year, so we'll just have to deal with it. Do you care?

    Fuck yes I care. Love those movies, originals and remakes. Also, hasn't horror done all right for original IPs lately? Since Grudge came out, a few that spring to mind are Saw, Paranormal Activity, Sinister, The Conjuring, Insidious, Last Exorcism. Partially thanks to Wan, but not entirely.
