The Grudge 3 (REVIEW)

Mainstream horror, in my opinion, is currently going through one of the worst creative droughts since the 90's. Over the past twelve months, genre fans have been subjected to one low-budget, direct-to-video sequel after another as shady producers and opportunistic studios attempt to cash in on previous successes.

Toby Wilkins On "Splinter", "The Grudge 3"

Toby Wilkins directed one of the best horror films of 2008, "Splinter", a film just recently released on DVD after a limited theatrical run. Coming up in May, he'll also be taking on the latest in the "Grudge" franchise, so he sat down with us recently to talk about both films. Check it out.

Give people the chance to see a film on their own terms, in as many ways as possible, and hopefully it will find an audience.

You made short films for a long time before moving on to features. Is that a format you really enjoy? What was the motivation for sticking with it so long?

"Ju-On" Sequels, New "Grudge" in US

Two new "Ju-On" sequels are set to hit Japan this year. The series, which spawned the US remake "The Grudge" and its sequel, is wildly popular in Japan and has inspired countless sequels and interations. These two new ones are titled "Ju-On: Shiroi Roujo" and "Ju-On: Kuroi Shoujo", and both are hitting theaters in Japan on June 27th. It's right around the 10th anniversary of Takashi Shimizu's original film, so I guess they figured why not celebrate with two more.

I enjoyed the trailer quite a bit, but is it me or does it look like these were both shot on video?
