All style and no substance, driven to its extreme. Gorgeous as fuck and on the point of being silly every single moment but somehow it manages to sneak by.
Having rewatched the original just a week ago I came to the conclusion that as far as remakes go, this isn’t bad at all. It condenses the story, blunts the message as hell but is slick and introduces some elements that I quite liked but can’t mention because of spoilers (it involves a body). So, not bad at all, if slightly hollywoody.
Il notti del terrore aka Burial ground is my all time favorite go to movie when everything else fail, I watch it at least once a year, it has that level of comfort. I'm not even going to bother to write a review this time, just tell you a little story.
Everyone who has seen the movie knows the effigy that is Peter Bark, the adult male with the horrendous haircut that plays the incestous Michael. You'll never forget him…
One of my dearest friends got married today and I couldn't attend because I am at home with a nasty fever. Which sucks. :(
So I decided to do the next best thing, nod off on the couch to his favorite movie of all time. My little tribute.
Here's to you Fred and Gregory. Five stars.
