Really good remake/retelling, but l'm not quite as blown away as most seem to be. Maybe its because the original has always been one of my favorite horror films, and Joe Spinell one of my favorite actors. l do like Elijah in the Zito role, but the kills here seem a little fewer, a little less bloody, and the movie as a whole didn't quite disturb me the way William Lustig's original 80s classic did.

This one also seems to lack the tension from the original. Maybe l'm comparing the two films too much. Kinda hard not to, though. This was good, but The Hills Have Eyes remake was better. 7/10

I'm truly mystified by the positive reviews. I had every belief that this would be just another polished up remake turd. I'm happy to be wrong.

I'm just trying to help you out. When you write stuff like that, it's hard not to imagine you as some morbidly obese mouth breather sitting in your parent's basement all day fapping to porn with one hand while eating pepperoni pizza hot pockets with the other....it's like you've never seen a real woman naked before...

Excellent score, impressive camera work, and I really enjoyed Wood's take on the character. Much better than expected.

Edit: Not that I expected much because I'm not a fan of the original, but as for it's contribution to the current horror scene; top notch stuff...

8/10

I'm 6' tall and weigh 175. I work fulltime and have a girlfriend. Nothing wrong with admiring a hot chick. Now, you seem like the type of person that wouldn't know what to do with a hot chick if she gave you an instruction manual. You freeze up when a chick talks to you and you're a spitting image of Waldo. It's prob because you're waiting for the right opportunity to "come out". Just go ahead man, everyone is doing it now. No one will hate you.

Saw it today and it was better than I thought. It's beautifully shot and Wood did a great job as Frank Zito. Nora Arnezeder is pretty damn good looking too. 8/10
