WHY? .. I get the need to remake something in another language .. but really?
When a producer uses contrived casting to lure viewers into a film, you have to know that the project will lack in other areas .. And the main area this film lacked into was depth. There is not love for the characters, passion from the actors to make the viewer fall for them .. and if it was just to spend money and be able to say that someone worked with someone and that someone funded a project of a remake, this is it.
There is no suspense as in the original film by Dario Argento. and sadly I was hoping for more, but wound up wanting to walk out and not just walk out, but actually ask for my money back sort of moment. It was that bad.
If you are stuck on an island and have one DVD to play and only enough electricity to watch this film -- save the electricity and stare at the sand because that will give you far more entertainment. The characters are that flat.
