I just watched the original ASSAULT last night for the first time. Very cool movie. Don't know if the remake is going to capture the mood but I'm willing to give it a shot. Now, re: the original. I had read about the scene with the little girl but it still caught me off guard. No way in hell would they do something like that today. Also, I really hope they use the original theme. So cool and catchy. I'm still humming it today. BTW, I read an interview Fangoria did with the remake's director. He said he approached Carpenter and asked him for advice or suggestions. Carpenter told him to just take the basic concept and run with it in his own way. Don't make a scene by scene remake, otherwise, why even do it. So the new director is making some changes. He's giving the bad guys a face and names (I personally thought it creepier not knowing who they were up against) and Bishop won't be the cop this time. He'll be the main prisioner. Oh, and he also said they would throw the name Napoleon somewhere in there (Napoleon as those who watched the original know, was the main prisioner in the original ASSAULT).
