Happy 2020, everyone! Back in December, I got the chance to sit down with some of the peeps from the new The Grudge film. It’s not a remake or a reboot, but also not really a sequel? It’s a sequel/reboot. A seaboot? I’m going with seaboot. From the new The Grudge seaboot, I first had the chance to chat with director Nicolas Pesce and actor John Cho, who plays Peter Spencer. Watch the video above to find out what inspires Nicolas Pesce, and what drew John Cho to the script. Come back tomorrow to see my interview with horror icon Lin Shaye where I find out about the secret pneumatic tube that delivers every new horror script directly to her waiting hands.
Check out the film’s trailer and synopsis below.
