Trailer Drops For 'The Grudge' Sequel And It's Even More Terrifying Than The Original

It's being billed as one of 2020's most terrifying flicks and it comes as no surprise after watching the first official trailer for The Grudge reboot - prepare for your heart to skip a beat.

Set in the United States this time around, movie goers follow a cop, played by Andrea Riseborough, investigating a series of suspicious deaths all stemming from one house, where a woman murdered her own family.

In the wake of the murders, the family home is now cursed.

The goosebump-inducing trailer, which was released today (28th October) begins as John Cho's character, an unsuspecting real estate agent, enters the cursed home, only to be lured towards the bathroom by frantic voices.

As he gets closer to the deep dark water, hands emerge and grab him. Shaken by the experience, he calls the authorities - and that's when Andrea's character enters.

The first look is filled with heart-stopping, skin crawling and many, many hide-behind-your-hands moments as Andrea's character utters: "I think something followed me home" as she gets way in over her head by the spooky investigation.

Directed by Nicolas Pesce, the new instalment is set to combine 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.

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 and Cho, the reboot stars Jacki Weaver, William Sadler, Demián Bichir, Betty Gilpin, and Lin Shaye.
