It's one of my favorite little creepy B movies, and while I was watching my Criterion dvd tonight I started having thoughts and visions of what a good director could do with this if he were to remake it. Not that I don't love the original as it is, you'd be hard pressed to find a creepier, unsettling or nightmarish little horror gem like this one. I'm just speculating for a moment. For our purposes here, let's all just forget that aweful 'Wes Cravin presents' version shall we, i'm talking a no holds barred, scare you to death, re-make. I thought of M. Night Shyamalan as the director, in his hands I think it would be incredible! It would of course be updated with better production values, better acting, better make-up and effects, and PERHAPS better writing and directing, but one thing I must STRONGLY emphesize: it would not be in the same generic horror movie vein as all the recent so called horror films made now. Catering to the audience of such mindless fare such as Valentine, Scream 3 and the like. Not this one. What I would like is to see it done seriously, with the intensity of say The Exorcist or even The Sixth Sense. I actually had the urge for a moment or two to find a way to somehow suggest to Hollywood to do this, or at least implant the germ of the idea in the head of someone who could write it and shop it around. Hell, if I were any good at writing i'd write the dammed thing myself! I'd really like to see something great done with this story...again.
