I remembered watching the original one when I was young. It was a good horror movie for that time. Why they have to make a remake of certain movies now is something I don't get. Don't you have enough imagination to make a similar story attractive? Because let's be honest, this movie is an exact copy of the first one, except that this one is boring and not scary at all. Sam Rockwell is bugging me through the whole movie. Most of the lines looked forced and aren't played good. I wished I would have watched the original again instead of this useless remake. Is this a lesson to be learned? I don't know. What I know for sure is that the originals are almost always better. Don't waste your time on this one, just watch the original instead.
