While I must say the poster for the remake, with a world-wide theatrical release date set for Halloween 2010, looks unpleasing, so does the teaser. The 1978 original is one of the most disturbing films I have ever seen in my life. So disturbing that I had to hit the fast forward button on my remote plenty of times. The remake just looks a bit to me like a made-for-Lifetime movie. I may just have to see the full length trailer when it is released to maybe get a second opinion, but right now I’m sticking to my guns.
The 2010 remake is directed by Steven R. Monroe and stars Sarah Butler, Chad Lindberg, and Daniel Franzese.
