“ Definately the best out of the lot and still holds up well by today's standards and still on of my all time favourite horror movies ever, violent and scary with a simple story line but a frightening outcome, just a shame that none of the other sequels lives up to this. ” - acidburn-10

Director: Marcus Nispel
“ A good remake probably one of the best slasher remakes out there, very slick and stylish and tons of gore which is always a good thing and decent performances from the cast but doesn't quite match the original in tension but comes close. ” - acidburn-10
