I"m going to see it in a few days, I loathe remakes, but my family bought me the Evil Dead Remake because they didn't know my purist rage, so I watched it and while I don't know how you'd screwbar an awesome plot/script if it was handed to you with a how-to video on how to shoot the film, I thought the remake was a really fun movie, I'll give this director a chance regardless of how he had to get into getting movies into theatres. The trailers for this movie looked pretty good to me and the decent reviews so far don't hurt. I hope he makes more original films.

Horror remakes can be fun sometimes and have a better track record than comedies or action films mostly because the original horror subjects are obscure or just bad.

Anyway Evil Dead is an odd subject because it could have been a sequel rather than a remake. And honestly I don't know which evil dead it would have been the sequel to. 2 was a remake of the original and the creators for the last film said it could take place along side the ash character and the plans for movies were very confusing. They said they wanted a sequel to that newer film and army of darkness and now we have a fun campy show so I really don't know on all that.

And back to Don't Breath, I honestly didn't know this was a remake. I couldn't even answer if I had seen the old one. The premise did sound like something familiar.

I don't know jack about his movie, so forgive my ignorance... but why is this a horror movie? Some jerks break into an old vet's home, and... he he gives them a what for? Wrecks their $#!*? I don't know.

I guess I was confused by the wording. All that evil dead stuff confuses me as well. Any way original film with familiar director and producer that have a decent record for horror/suspense films and good reviews as well. I may have to see it.
