Wait, didn’t they already remade the Japanese horror flick “The Grudge” in 2004? Then did a sequel to it in 2006 and a second sequel in 2009? I must be out of my mind, because now I’m reading that Sam Raimi and his Ghost House pictures are going to remake … the remake?
Yup. They’re remaking the remake. Yes, it’s a new low in Hollywood, ladies and gentlemen.
The original Japanese franchise (called “Ju-on”) was created/directed by Takashi Shimizu, who actually also directed the first two American remakes of his own movie. Shimizu himself has since moved on, and recently directed the live-action “Kiki’s Delivery Service” and has the American horror flick “7500,” about supernatural shenanigans on a plane, stuck somewhere on some distributor’s shelf since 2012.
It would only make sense for Shimizu to also return to direct the remake … of the remake … of his original movie … again.
Jeff Buhler will script this latest attempt to squeeze blood from a stone. I’m going to go out on a limb and say this new version will feature a ghost lady and stupid American kids getting killed in grisly ways.
One can only hope the remake of the remake ends up being as scary as this real-live “Grudge” event, captured on tape (demon spirits are real after all!):
