Obviously doesn’t hold a candle to the original, and some of the acting is pretty genuinely bad, but it knows what it wants and it goes for it. What it wants, here being: To be hamstrung to keeping in step with its predecessor but also being wildly different enough to piss anyone off who was expecting an actual “remake”.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
Eye eye, what we got ere then?
There’s a running eyeball motif throughout this revamp/reimaging of Bob Clark’s much revered culter of the same name (1974), after sitting through it you may, like me, feel like extracting your own eyeballs and playing ping-pong with them!
Bunch of pretty sorority girls get menaced and mangled by a deranged killer who has come home for Christmas…
This lacks everything that made Bob Clark’s film so effective. The less is more approach has gone, thus there is very little suspense, and in place is a gigantic back story for the killer. The characterisation of the girls, some acted by some very capable actresses, is practically non existent, so very little emotional heft to draw you into a state of caring for them. There’s some good gore on show, but since tonally the pic is all over the place, it’s never once scary or ironically funny.
A poor show all round. 3/10
Yet another VERY disappointing “Re-make”
I had very high expectations for this film. I thought that this might be the one “Re-make” that is the exception because of the involvement of the original film maker, Bob Clark, serving as assistant producer. BOY was I wrong!!! There are some exceptional murder sequences in this flick but that is not enough. Once again, as is the case in so many “Re-makes” the storyline has been almost completely changed! The producers do not seem to realize the elements that made the original film scary in the first place which are now missing! Such as the fact that, in the original you were never quite sure who the killer was and they never revealed it. Now not only do they reveal it, but they add an entire background that is so laughably unbelievable that it dilutes the film’s ability to frighten the viewer. The over-the-top gore sequences alone do not make for a frightening movie and the “twist” ending is quite laughable! What they add to the ending of this movie is utterly ridiculous and absolutely unnecessary! Aside from exceptional gore effects, the only other saving grace is the presence of Andrea Martin from the original film as Mrs. Mack but they should have really tried harder to make the characters from the original more like those in the original…and the phone calls, a crucial element to the terrifying experience of the original, are absolutely laughable! Skip this one and watch the original.
Scooby Doo has more compelling believable story lines
I am a fan of all sorts of horror films including stalker / slasher type movies and this is perhaps the worst modern example of one of these I have ever sat through. None of the characters are likable so you do not care if they are murdered, in fact there is so little character development that they are all interchangeable. Despite some reasonable gore there is so little tension that it drags on for what seems like hours.
In the end it simply does not work because of so many unbelievable situations. They are stalked around a sorority house that is miles from anywhere (are you not supposed to share these to live NEAR a campus ?). Even when dead bodies start to pile up they still go off into the dark on their own to check out noises !!! Every situation is ridiculous, how the killer fools the guard at the asylum for example. No one would ever act in the way the guard does and this theme follows the whole film through.
You do wonder how the inept script was ever green lighted. One to avoid, even for fans of the genre.
