When the Godmother of Horror talks, we listen. When she goes on record to say that The Grudge is “real horror,” we absolutely listen.

In a short vignette that Sony posted, we get some glimpses of Nicolas pesce’s upcoming The Grudge.

In the short video, Sam Rami, Pesce and the cast speak briefly about the approach this film will take. Within those quick cuts we get Shaye telling us emphatically that this film is “real horror.”

Shaye’s words have us excited to see what Raimi and Pesce have in store for us this time around.

I know some of the cool kids are above J-Horror for whatever reason, but for me they have always been a sub genre that is easily able to get under my skin. Something about a curse that follows you around like a death plague is frickin’ eerie as hell.

Excited to see what Raimi and Co. have in store for us? Let us know in the comments section.

The Grudge opens theatrically January 3, 2020.
