I got back on this subject after seeing High Tension, but it's been something that's really been bugging me the last few years. Sometimes a film is dead-on without credit, other times it's really similar but slightly adjusted. High Tension - Intensity by Dean Koontz (no credit given, direct adaptation) Into the Blue - remake of The Deep Disturbia - appears to be a remake of Rear Window (subject to change if plot is really different) The Girl Next Door - Risky Business (I really liked this remake, but still there was no writing credit that I know of or any open acknowledgement of RB) Bug's Life - Seven Samurai (not really a big issue for me since it's a kids version, but still it would be nice if people acknowledged it more) DePalma alone has several Hitch "remakes" ***SPOILERS FOR THESE FILMS, CAREFUL**** Dressed to Kill - Psycho (shower reference is even made to the lead who will be killed early in the film in a different location, very, very, similar manner, including the killer in drag) Blow Out - Rear Window (he witnesses a murder he thinks, joins forces with a herione to solve the case, puts her in harms way and is unable to come to her aid when she gets in danger trying to get evidence while he is watching/listening) Body Double - Vertigo (wow, maybe hide the plot point from the title at least, husband gets away with murder by hiring a look-alike to pose as his wife for a fall guy to watch and then witness the murder, sexual attaction is used to get the guy to watch/follow her) There are plenty more, some I can't remember and others I'm not sure about. I know there is the Lion King thing for Disney, I haven't seen the original to be sure. Haven't they had a couple of these in fact? So which ones come to mind for you and how do you feel about this odd practice? Let me add that changing settings such as Elizabeth being Godfather-like (aka the ending mostly) it doesn't bother me nearly as much, taking a story and reinventing it in a new location or new situation can be interesting, like Yojimbo-Fistful or even Seven Sam-Mag Seven.
