     October 22, 2019


Worst. Shower. Ever. At least, that’s what’s being teased in the latest poster for The Grudge reboot starring Andrea RiseboroughBetty GilpinDemián Bechir, and Lin Shaye. The latest poster for the forthcoming reboot arrives on the 15th anniversary of the release of the 2004 English-language remake of the modern Japanese horror classic which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Fans of Gellar’s The Grudge will recognize an infamous moment recreated specially for this new poster. That moment? When Karen (Gellar) feels a hand gripping the back of her head while she showers. It looks like director/writer Nicolas Pesce (Don’t Breathe) has kept this unsettling bit in with his new spin on the horror story, which will function as a reboot. Fingers crossed more eerie moments from both the original movie, Ju-On: The Grudge, and the remake make it in and this poster is just a teaser of the tip of the terrifying iceberg.
