More Remake madness in the Horror world.
First, I Spit on Your Grave
It's a cult classic and should be left alone. However, others feel differently, Shock to You Drop said:
There were rumblings a few months back that shooting had begun on a remake of Meir Zarchi's version with Steven R. Monroe (It Waits) behind the camera to direct for CinTel Films. Now, IMDB (via Arrow In The Head) uncovered a list of the full cast for the feature which Anchor Bay Entertainment is co-producing.The next one is... The Amityville Horror. Yes, ANOTHER remake of this movie. BD Horror had this to say:
Sarah Butler, Chad Lindberg, Daniel Franzese, Rodney Eastman, Jeff Branson, Saxon Sharbino, Amber Dawn Landrum and Andrew Howard all star in the update of I Spit On Your Grave.
I just finished wiping away the tears of laughter as I just discovered that the Weinstein Company and Dimension Films are planning on remaking The Amityville Horror...again. Andrew Douglas directed the 2005 reboot produced by Platinum Dunes that grossed over $100m at the box office worldwide. I guess five years in the new 25? Our sources also tell us that there just might be a director already in talks to develop the project. Knowing Dimension Films, I'd expect this project to start and stop at least a dozen times before it ultimately fails. Alas horror fiends, don't stress it no matter how idiotic this sounds.
I'm not feeling these choices, but I might check out I Spit on Your Grave because Rodney Eastman is in it. He was Joey in Nightmare on Elm Street 3 and 4. So cute.
