For anyone who’s not already aware, a new movie in The Grudge franchise is on the way. The movies are based on the Japanese Ju-On series, and began with the 2004 title of the same name starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.
This latest entry is produced by Sam Raimi and written and directed by Nicolas Pesce, and stars Andrea Riseborough, DemiÃ¡n Bichir, John Cho, Betty Gilpin, Lin Shaye, and Jacki Weaver. The movie is directly connected to both Ju-On and the 2004 American remake, but unlike the American remake, it will have an R rating instead of a PG-13 rating.

In April of 2018 Starz decided to cancelAsh vs Evil Dead after three seasons, and just days after that the longtime star of the series and the original movie trilogy, Bruce Campbell, decided to hang up his chainsaw and boomstick and retire from the role of Ashley Williams. It was a difficult time for fans of the Evil Dead franchise, to say the least.
But as Campbell said in his farewell message, Ash will never die. And as he said just a couple of months before retiring, if the show was canceled they would begin thinking about a new movie in the franchise. Now franchise writer, director, and producer Sam Raimi has offered an update, saying that producer Rob Tapert, Campbell, and himself are currently “working on some ideas” for a new movie. See what he had to say below.
It’s been announced that an adaptation of author J.A. White‘s children’s horror-fantasy Nightbooks is coming to Netflix.
The adaptation comes from The Evil Dead writer, director, and executive producer Sam Raimi and executive producer Rob Tapert, and it is being written by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis (The Curse of La Llorona, Five Feet Apart).

Continue below for a recap and review of Ash vs Evil Dead season 3, episode 4, titled “Unfinished Business.”
In the late 70s a group of friends got together in Morristown, TN, to create the low-budget gorefest to end all low-budget gorefests, The Evil Dead. Released in 1981, the film became a cult classic on home video and suddenly people knew the names of Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and of course Bruce Campbell. Six years later, on a budget ten times that of the original, the gang returned to the cabin in the woods and outdid themselves, crafting a half remake/half sequel that broke genre conventions and turned a one-off cult film into a now 5-decade-old franchise. The film was Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn, and it was released in theaters 30 years ago this week. (It’s available now on Blu-ray.)
