I want to hate it, I really do. This streak of remakes of genuinely good movies is driving me batty; it's one thing to take a movie, or television show, that wasn't that great to begin with and twist it around and rework it so that it becomes something new and interesting, but I've lacked an ability to understand the appeal of taking something that was good already and warping it so that it, inevitably, becomes less than it was before.
It feels like it could work. The idea was good enough to begin with, and it doesn't look like they're fucking with it overmuch (and it'd be nice to see it with a budget, and without the Keystone Kops, I'll admit)... I like the casting, too. Becca from Superbad, and Francis Wolcott from Deadwood? That's borderline inspired casting.
I was unnerved, close to scared, as the trailer reached its conclusion. Definitely intrigued am I, definitely want to know of a solid release date.
