Even aft watching the original in 2017, i got pulled into seeing this cos of two reasons.
After having already seen The Invisible Guest in 2017 n having posted a review of it, two things really pulled me into seeing this official remake : the top notch cinematography n Mr. Bachan.
The trailer looked as if they did more expenditure compared to the original n the movie proved it.
The plot is the same but with a small change, in the original, a businessman stands accused of murdering his lover as he was found with the lover's dead body in a locked hotel room. But in this case they made a businesswoman an accused.
The London locations r awesome, the marshland and woodlands of the rural area is picturesque.
The spooky hotel a la The Shining in the middle of nowhere really stands out.
Another good aspect is that there r no songs n dance, no hero bashing goons matrix style, no jingoism, no six packs, etc.
