Although Paramount had trouble rebooting The Ring series earlier this year with Rings, which was a bit of a dud both critically and commercially, Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures is now taking a stab at rebooting their own imported J-Horror franchise as well. The U.S. remake of Ju-On: The Grudge starred Sarah Michelle Gellar and […] »
Back in March 2014, it was announced that Ghost House Pictures would be rebooting its remake of the Japanese horror The Grudge, and now it seems they are finally ready to move forward with Deadline reporting that Nicolas Pesce (The Eyes of My Mother) has signed on to direct.
Pesce made his directorial debut with The Eyes of My Mother, and is currently in post-production on his second film, the psychological thriller Piercing, which stars Mia Wasikowska and Christopher Abbott.
Created by Takashi Shimizu, The Grudge has spawned nine feature films in Japan – most recently Sadako vs. Kayako, a crossover with fellow J-horror Ring. The English-language remake was released in 2004, and was followed by sequels in 2006 and 2009. »

True to its name, The Grudge is a cult horror franchise that refuses to relent.
Not since the release of 2009’s lacklustre The Grudge 3 have we welcomed a new entry into the supernatural series, but that’s all about to change very soon. According to Deadline, The Eyes of My Mother filmmaker Nicolas Pesce has climbed aboard to write and direct The Grudge for Ghost House Pictures, which will be based on a spec script from Midnight Meat Train writer, Jeff Buhler. Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Taka Ichise are all on board to produce the horror reboot, working in tandem with executive producers Roy Lee, Doug Davison, Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane.
Little is currently known about the plot, but it’s safe to assume that Ghost House Pictures’ reimagining of The Grudge will chronicle the titular entity as it moves from one grief-stricken victim to another, leaving »

“The Grudge” is an interesting case study in a horror franchise that has had difficulty sustaining itself beyond a single film. The Japanese original spawned six sequels, but none of them have been as memorable as the first film. When the property went stateside for the 2004 remake starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, it was a big hit, tallying up $187 million worldwide. However, that goodwill didn’t last long as the follow-up, released two years later, couldn’t even crack $100 million globally, and everything pretty much stopped there.

According to Deadline, the latest film in The Grudge franchise is set to be directed and rewritten by Nicolas Pesce, the filmmaker behind 2016's The Eyes of My Mother, a big hit on the festival circuit and a film that our own Heather Wixson called "a hauntingly provocative slice of gothic cinema" in her review.
Pesce is expected to provide additional work to a previous screenplay written by Jeff Buhler, who adapted Clive Barker's The Midnight Meat Train for the screen and also co-wrote the upcoming Jacob's Ladder remake.

The planned reboot of horror franchise The Grudge is pressing ahead at Ghost House Pictures, and we’ve got news now on who will be writing and directing it.
Nicolas Pesce, best known for The Eyes Of My Mother, is set to rewrite the existing script and take on directing duties. His job will be to bring fresh life to a franchise that’s seen three English language films so far, following the successful Japanese originals.
It’s expected that a new cast will be recruited this time too, and that Sarah Michelle Gellar won’t be back.
There’s no word yet on just when we can expect the new The Grudge. It’s a fair bet that all concerned will want to get it moving fairly quickly, though.

It was just over 10 years ago that 2002 Japanese film Ju-on: The Grudge was remade here in America as the Sarah Michelle Gellar-starring The Grudge, but another new take on the franchise is already on the way. Deadline reports tonight that Nicolas Pesce, the man behind last year’s The Eyes of My Mother, has […] »

Nearly six years after The Grudge reboot was first announced by Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures, a director has finally been found. Filmmaker Nicolas Pesce, whose critically-acclaimed directorial debut The Eyes Of My Mother debuted at Sundance last year, has signed on to direct The Grudge reboot, and rewrite the script. While no production schedule or release date has been announced yet, it seems this horror reboot is finally moving forward in the right direction, after years of languishing in development hell.
Deadline reports that Nicolas Pesce will rewrite the existing script, which was first worked on by Jeff Buhler (Midnight Meat Train), who came aboard to write the script in 2014. No details have been given about the existing script, or Nicolas Pesce's new vision for the project, or how it may diverge from the original Japanese movie, or the American remake. The original Japanese movie, Ju-on: The Grudge »
The 2004 movie The Grudge was one of the first big hits of the post-Ring wave of American remakes of Japanese horror movies, and now a whole new generation is getting a chance to be scared by spooky Japanese houses and little cat boys. As reported by Deadline, Nicolas Pesce has been hired to write and direct a reboot of The Grudge, with Sam Raimi on board as a producer and Midnight Meat Train writer Jeff Buhler writing an earlier draft of the script.
We don’t know any other specifics about Pesce’s version of The Grudge, but he is the man behind the artsy horror film The Eyes Of My Mother. Based on that film, it seems safe to assume that he’ll bring some sort of stylish edge to the cat boy, and with Raimi on board, maybe he’ll go crazy with the violence as »

If the new trailer for upcoming horror, Polaroid is anything to go by we think we’ll be sticking digital cameras for the foreseeable… Prepare to feel that antique chill run down your spine.
Based on a short by Lars Klevberg, the horror delves into a new type of haunting with an evil entity taking residence inside an antique Polaroid camera, an entity that preys and devours all those that innocently dare to pose for a picture picking off high school teens like it’s dining out on a pack of Haribo.
The cast includes Mitch Pileggi as the adult “voice of reason,” who seemingly exists just to tell the kids “No, that antique polaroid camera is not causing all of your suspicious deaths” – to be subsequently proved wrong in front of his very eyes. It features Javier Botet, the Spanish actor who has made a career »

"Sometimes to deal with tragedies we make up urban legends." The Weinstein Company / Dimension Films has debuted the official trailer for a horror film titled Polaroid, about an Polaroid camera that kills people. Well, not exactly. The story is about a high schooler who finds an old Polaroid camera, and anyone who gets their picture taken by it will die in a "violent and tragic death." Not the most original concept, but seems like it has some good kills in it. Starring Kathryn Prescott, Mitch Pileggi, Grace Zabriskie, Tyler Young, Keenan Tracey, Samantha Logan, Priscilla Quintana, Madelaine Petsch and Javier Botet. This is based on the horror short Polaroid also from director Lars Klevberg, who is making his feature debut here. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Lars Klevberg's Polaroid movie, direct from TWC's YouTube: From the producers of the The Ring and The Grudge and based on »

Dimension Films has released the official trailer for their upcoming horror movie Polaroid, which is set to hit theaters on August 25, 2017. It was announced at the beginning of this year that production had started for the movie in Halifax, Nova Scotia and now we have the first trailer and official release date set. Polaroid is produced by Roy Lee and Chris Bender, the team responsible for The Ring and The Grudge. Lee believes that Polaroid could be the start of a franchise. The trailer does hint at a cool horror series in the same vein as Final Destination, even giving a hint that there could be a prequel sometime in the future.
The trailer comes to us via The Weinstein Company's YouTube channel and it's a little over 2 minutes of suspense and super creepy sound design that often sounds like somebody struggling to breathe mixed in with the unmistakable sound »
As readers of R.L. Stine's Say Cheese and Die! books in his Goosebumps series know, not all old cameras can be trusted, and some can even be deadly. Such is the case in Dimension Films' upcoming horror film Polaroid, which is teased in its first trailer ahead of its theatrical release this August.
