Part of my birthday movie marathon! Movie #3
This review is for the UNRATED version!
The original had a stronger grasp of the elements that make up a truly terrifying tale! It's haunting atmosphere and chilling storytelling was by far the superior to this remake!
The original had a rawness about it that gave its horror a more genuine feel to it thus upping the believability factor!
The remake was not an unpleasant experience by no means! It was good for what it was! A couple scenes actually presented better visuals than the original.. example the accident scene and the jumping off the balcony scene!
Even though I saw the unrated version it was pretty unremarkable when it came to shocks and scares! Much too homogenized for my tastes!
My advice stick with the creepier and superior original!
