I guess this is FC's territory but I saw the trailer for this last night and I felt a need to comment.

I disliked the original (hardly a popular opinion, I suspect) but the remake looks even worse - the scenes in the trailer seemed taken straight from the original (aside from some hot chick in a bikini), but it's all PG-13 this time around (shocker), and it looks like there's a stepson, too, which would largely negate the point of the first film. I mean, the original had a really gory opening scene, a guy getting beaten to death with a two-by-four, and some fairly gory stabbings and shootings in the final act. So, how is this going to be PG-13?

I guess I can watch Shadow of a Doubt again, of which the original is largely borrowed from anyway.

Just a few days ago I was looking for the original, for some reason felt like I must watch it again. I won't watch this.

No interest.
I'll get around to the original (which I didn't even know existed until now) when I can.

Well I've been comissioned to review this likely piece of shit for the Pitt News, so hopefully I'll have an expletive-filled rant up in the next few days.

The original is a cult classic and quite well made and hugely popular among horror fans. The first sequel is almost as good. The third film loses it, though and ends up just being another slasher gorefest.
