Trailer Talk: The Grudge (2020)
One of my favourite films is ‘Ju-On: The Grudge’; while I’m not a fan of the haunted house subgenre, I thought this one was genuinely scary. The American remakes were, surprisingly, also quite good so, after hearing about yet another ‘Grudge’ remake, I was excited to see what new ideas the film would have…
‘The Grudge’ 2020 revolves around a young detective and a single mother who are trying to uncover what happened after a mother murdered her family. However, they discover that the house in question is now haunted by a vengeful spirit that dooms anyone who enters to a violent and painful death.
After seeing the trailer, this looks like a shot-for-shot remake of the original film. I’m hoping the clips shown have been chosen to just jog people’s memory of what the concept is, but I would like to see some new ideas introduced. The January release date is also worrying; January is notoriously known as ‘the dumping ground for films’ specifically horror films. Therefore, that doesn’t give me much hope that this will be very good.
The trailer promises a ‘twisted new vision’ but, after seeing the trailer, I beg to differ. I just hoping I’m proven wrong.
‘The Grudge’ will be in cinemas 31st January 2020.
