Even though Nicolas Pesce’s The Grudge was Rated R, plenty of gore was left on the cutting room floor when the film hit theaters last January. For example, check out what happens to “Poor Sam” in the deleted scene embedded at the top of the article.
The Grudge arrives on Digital March 10th and on Blu-ray/DVD March 24th. If you missed the film when it was in theaters, you can see the trailer and synopsis below.
A curse born in Japan is simultaneously unleashed in the U.S. Those who encounter it are consumed by its fury and met with a violent fate. Producer Sam Raimi brings us the untold chapter of this horror classic starring Andrea Riseborough, Demián Bichir, John Cho and Betty Gilpin, with horror movie legend Lin Shaye (Insidious, Ouija) and Jacki Weaver, in the darkest, creepiest and most shocking film in the series.
