'The Grudge' Reboot Looks Even More Horrifying Than The Original
The newest full trailer for The Grudge reboot has been released and we're not lying when we say it looks absolutely terrifying.
Directed by Nicolas Pesce, the reboot combines the most crucial and frightening elements of Takashi Shimizu's plot with a new storyline, which takes place at the same time as the 2004 flick but in America rather than Japan.
This time around, movie goers will follow a cop, played by Andrea Riseborough, investigating the reasons behind a woman murdering her own family.
In the wake of the murders, the family home has been cursed, with the rage and sadness from the crime inflicted upon the people who live there.
In the latest fear-instilling trailer, we see Andrea's character Detective Muldoon enter a unknown home that is nothing short of creepy.
The cop says as she makes her way to the kitchen: "Hello? Police department. Mrs Matheson? I'm Detective Muldoon. I want to talk to you a woman we found."
Eventually finding Mrs Matheson, the distressed woman, covered in what appears to be blood pleads with the Detective: "Will you feed me? William, he always used to feed me".
Now fearing for her safety, Andrea's character asks: "William was your husband? Madam, are you alone in the house right now? Are you alone?" before she makes a dart for the front door after Mrs Matheson shows her fingerless hand.
While Mrs Matheson screams pierce through the hall, what Detective Muldoon finds in the living room is far more frightening than anything she could have imagined.
The teaser then cuts to several disturbing scenes, solidifying that this horror won't be for the fainthearted. The latest trailer, which is rated 18s, follows the official trailer that was released in November.
Speaking of the new plot, Pesce told Entertainment Weekly in September: "We follow her, as well as two other storylines, that are all interacting with this grudged house in small town America...
"Like the old films, it's a tapestry of three different stories that interweave, and all take place at slightly different times, centred around this one house that's at the centre of this case that this cop is working on."
In addition to Riseborough, the reboot stars Jacki Weaver, John Cho, William Sadler, Demián Bichir, Betty Gilpin, and Lin Shaye.
The Grudge is expected to hit UK cinemas on 31st January 2020.
