Win tickets and be terrified at our previews of The Grudge


We’re chuffed to be hosting preview screenings of The Grudge in Auckland (Event St Lukes) and Christchurch (Hoyts Riccarton) Wednesday night, 29 January.

(Not in those cities? No worries. We’ve also got in-season double passes up for grabs.)

Playing nationwide 30 January, this new take on the Japanese haunted house horror comes from producer Sam Raimi and director Nicolas Pesce (The Eyes of My Mother). Starring Andrea Riseborough (Mandy) and John Cho (Searching), this one’s rated R16 for violence and horror. So leave the kids at home.
