Does the new ‘Grudge’ trailer get too gory for franchise fans?
Step right up if gore porn is your ideal night out at the movies.
A new gnarly trailer for “The Grudge” reboot has dropped, and it’s not for the faint of heart.
Anticipation builds as a detective, played by Andrea Riseborough, enters what is soon shown to be the ultimate house of horrors. She approaches a frantic but disoriented woman (Lin Shaye), who is standing in the kitchen covered in blood and asking to be fed.
Everything soon goes downhill for the detective — who discovers that all of the woman’s fingers have been cut off when she uses what’s left of her hand to grab for the officer’s arm. As the detective backs away, she soon finds a rotting corpse — maggots and all — seated in front of a TV in the living room. We assume television didn’t rot his brain, but the mystery lives on.
The question of how Shaye’s character’s fingers were chopped off then is revealed, when, after a maniacal laugh sequence, the screen flashes to her hand on a cutting board as she chops off her own digits. Not much is explained as to why she would self-dismember her digits and before the amputation can be processed — a series of other grotesque flashes haunt the screen, including someone being decapitated, a woman being thrown down the stairs and, yes, another rotting corpse, this time in a car.
Just before a shirtless John Cho taking a shower appears, the iconic black-haired girl from the original “Grudge” movies menacingly appears slowly rising from a bathtub.
The latest splatter film version of “The Grudge,” slated to hit theaters Jan. 3, is directed by Nicolas Pesce and based on the same material as the original film: Takashi Shimizu’s 2002 Japanese horror film, “Ju-On (The Grudge).” The American versions came out in 2004, 2006 and 2009, the first of which brought in over $187 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo. That 2004 remake follows an American nurse in Tokyo, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, as she unlocks a grisly supernatural and contagious curse.
