Ghost House Pictures and Mandate Still Holding a GrudgeOne of the most terrifying J-horror franchises of them all, Ju-On (or The Grudge as it’s known here in the States), is still alive and kicking, and apparently there’s a new one on its way!

According to Bloody Disgusting Ghost House Pictures and Mandate are currently developing another remake of the Japanese fear film.

Now a little history – Before the 2004 American remake, entitled The Grudge, Ju-on was originally released as two low-budget straight-to-video Japanese television movies in 2000. Three years later, due to the success of the videos, Takashi Shimizu, director of both telefilms, made a theatrical version based on the videos, Ju-on: The Grudge.

Now it gets tricky as that version spawned a sequel titled Ju-on: The Grudge 2. Then a year later Takashi Shimizu directed The Grudge, an American remake. It is based on the theatrical version of Ju-on, but it contains scenes re-enacted from all of the Ju-on movies. (Wikipedia)

Continuing the franchise into infamy, Ghost House released The Grudge 2 theatrically in 2006 and The Grudge 3 direct to video in 2009.

Next up, another reboot, although it’s unclear if this is to go direct to home video or hit theaters. A Grudge 4 was originally debunked back in 2009. This will mark the eighth film in the franchise.

More soon!
