This morning I watched Revenge of the Creature. This is one film that I hadn't seen it since I was a kid.

Dawn of the Dead remake...jeez...

I'm convinced there is no original thought in Hollywood anymore.

AND just what is WRONG with the Zack Snyder classic, young man...?!?

Seriously, you may be right on the originality thing. That may all change once a certain someone gets their break.

You know Sin -

I was waiting to be scared at the beginning with the little girl. Maybe it was the anticipation that killed the moment.

If this was the directors cut - where's the gut eatin? Hell - they even show that on NoLD on TV.

The pregnant woman was disturbing - really - what f'ed it up was that they HAD to show the baby. Wouldn't it have been more disturbing to not show the baby and then bash it's head in with a rifle butt?

The sign guy and the fat old lady were about the only redeeming factors of the movie - that and Ving Rhames who is an a** kicker in every movie he's in....(There's a class of actor who rarely does wrong in pictures - and I know it's personnel taste - but Rhames, Dinklage, Hopper, Glover, more recently Haig, Depp - argue all you want - again it's personel taste) These guys you can watch again and again - know your going to get them - and still enjoy it.

I dunno. Not here to argue. But so little excites me anymore - maybe therein lies the problem. Really - the bottom line is this: why do we get pissed because the studios redo a movie for the sake of a couple bucks? If you or I could figure out how to do it - wouldn't we?

I'd love to take inherent weaknesses in movies I've enjoyed - and try to make them better (curse me all you want - I think there is a decent 'seed' movie in Halloween III - Season of the Witch) but that is a fundamental difference between you, me, Zombie, vs. the studios. The studios are just updating the cast. I guess there is nothing wrong with that.

Funny thing is - is that people probably argued against Carpenter remaking the Thing.

You guys have gotten me excited about Halloween with Zombie - he'd just better not sell out.

But I'm more excited about Grindhouse - I trust Tarantino and Rodreguez (sorry about the spelling) to turn the genre on it's ear.

Sorry for the ramble.

Just to add after reading the post...

I like slow Zombies. I like slow mass murderers. No matter how fast you run - they catch up. It's like a nightmare - and I think that works a lot better than fast zombies and murderers.

Not to say there is not the exception - I thought 28 Days was a great movie. Fast domestic zombies don't work for me!

For whatever reason!

I'm with you on that, brother. I've mentioned before the slow, claustrophobic sense of dread and impending doom scares the %&*$ out of me.....

JT -
To me probably still the most disturbing movie I have ever seen is Night of the Living Dead and I've seen most all of them.

I have to be in exactly the right frame of mind to watch it - or I can't.

I can't say that about any other movie.

Yup - I've said that before. That and Carnival of Souls (although those ghouls move quite fast).
