You and I haven't known each other very long, so I'll let you in on a little secret that you might not know about me.
Remakes, in general, make me kind of angry.
And when it's a remake of a foreign horror film, well, that has a tendency to make me homicidal. Especially, taking into account, America's track record with remaking foreign horror films into absolute monstrosities.
Do you remember the abomination that was the 2005 American remake of Dark Water? Because I sure as Hell do.
So then why, you might ask, should I be even remotely black and white on this remake? Shouldn't I already be completely up in arms over it? I mean, 'Let the Right one in' is, hands down, one of the most AMAZING horror films of the last decade. What is there to be torn about?
This, you guys, this.
I am, in general, not the biggest fan of children. but this kid managed to wiggle her way under my anti-kinder skin some time ago, and has since firmly rooted herself near my cold, black heart.
(those of you currently going, 'What the Hell Spooky? I have no idea who that is!', did you see Kick Ass? Then you DO know who that is, she played Hit Girl, now stop your whining)
So what does this mean you guys?
It means that, as much as I am going to hate myself and feel dirty for doing it, this particular Creepy Confection is going to be dragging her sugary ass to see this particular remake.
Am I proud of it?
Will I still be doing it despite the fact that it looks like they've sucked all the life/joy/amazingness out of the original?
I apologize in advance everyone. I already feel used.
This is all your fault kid, I wish I knew how to quit you.
