The Grudge game for Wii this Halloween

Don't go down to the Gellar.

Rising Star has told Eurogamer that spooky Wii game Ju-On: The Grudge will arrive here this Halloween, witch is in October.

As the name suggests, Ju-On: The Grudge is based on the scary Japanese film The Grudge, created by Takashi Shimizu. You might have seen the Hollywood remake that stars Sarah "Buffy" Michelle Gellar.

Shimizu will be a creative consultant and help players become the Yamada family, who must individually face a grudge curse accidentally placed upon them by their daughter who was exposed after a visit to an abandoned warehouse.

As if creeping around dark and bloody environments with freaky girls popping up in-front of your face isn't bad enough, developer feelplus will let friends grab a second Wiimote and push buttons to trigger in-game scares. The films - both Hollywood and original - are pretty scary.

For an idea of the effect the game has, check out The Grudge teaser trailer on Eurogamer TV.
