I really like the premise of this film....and for it's time it was pretty good, but damn, it has not aged well...the effects are atrocious...this is one of the very rare instances I could see a remake being a good thing.

I could see Robert Downey Jr...in the lead.

Plus kudos to Ken Russel for ALWAYS including naked breats in his films!!! yay breasts!!

remakes are not always bad....I remember being so offended they were redoing THE FLY when I was in high school....Huge Vincent Price fan that I am, but Cronenberg made it his very gooey and oozy own, and it ruled!!!

So maybe it could rule....Just update the effects for the last 40 minutes....and presto!!

A great WTF movie if there ever was one. And yeah, not all remakes are bad. You mentioned The Fly, a great remake, and there was the Dawn of the Dead remake that I surprisingly liked, being such a HUGE fan of the original. Hmm, letís see, I liked The Blob remake and I think itís funny as hell that Rob Zombie is going to remake it yet again. What, so now is it going to be a foulmouthed, white-trash blob? And how much you wanna bet itís going to be set in the 70s? lmao

Zombie pisses me off with his 70's setting...only because he doesnt get meticulous with the details...

HALLOWEEN....is set in the late 60's...at the beginning when Michael is a child, would have to be if it culminates on Halloween night 1978...

But Young Michael Myers is sporting a KISS shirt....KISS who did not drop an album before 1974...or anything.

I still cant help but dig Zombie's visual style and falir...and the swearing white trash thing...just makes me homesick.

The ending of this movie remains classic, no matter how silly the effects might now seem.

C'mon, A-ha ripped off that ending for the for "Take on me" video! How much cooler can you get?
