THE GRUDGE is getting a reboot

The 2004 film is getting a reboot. 2004. 2004. 2004. A REBOOT.

Eek! Jamie Lee is not happy. I'm glad I'm not at the other end of that glare... :-(

And I've always hated these JU-ON movies. To me they are nothing but obvious, hacky rip-offs of far better movies.

I think Takashi Shimizu has made, like, EIGHT of them so far and he's still no closer to making a good one.

Whoa, menopause.

Why don't they make a horror movie with Jamie Lee Curtis as the villain for once, and call it MENOPAUSE?
I could be scared from beginning to end, if it was made right.

I'm also curious why she's so angry at that fella across from her in the shots. Fascinating pictures, but probably private invasion, really.

Is there a fun story behind that image?

Women and they hormones, amirite?

I have no idea what's going on in these pictures, but they are good at expressing what I want to express on occasion.

It's not even JU-ON that's getting a reboot, it's THE GRUDGE. What the heck, I don't get it. I've never actually seen any GRUDGEs; I figure I've seen JU-ON so why bother? I like the OG film well enough, but the milking, oh, the milking...them teets is TIRED, Shimizu, give 'em a rest!

I don't know who the guy is across from her but I'm enjoying myself imagining it's Rob Zombie.

I agree about the Ju-On flicks-can we say BORING?
And @Jacques Dillinger: They did make a movie with J. Lee as the villian: MOTHER'S BOYS. And it's a humdinger!

Woah, this might be the scariest thing I've seen all year.

Yep. All three months of it.

I liked the first Ju-on, never saw any of the others. The Grudge, I've seen all of them. Unfortunately including the even worser third one. Ugh. How can you reboot a remake? Has that been done before?

Geez, somebody is going through Activia withdrawal.
