News out of this past weekend's International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival at the Harkins Centerpoint Theate in Tempe - Linda Blair, there to introduce THE EXORICST, hinted that a remake of the film is in the works.... and judging by the look on her face, she's not happy about it!
It has officially gotten out of hand.
Remake The Hitcher, fine.
Remake Halloween, You're off your rocker but whatever.
Go ahead and remake Nightmare on Elm Street if you want. You'd be an idiot but sure, if it makes you happy.
But The Exorcist? Remaking The Exorcist? You do remember it won two Oscars and is remembered by many if not most as the scariest horror film ever made? What's next, Jaws? Is there a memo going around in Hollywood that horror movies are beneath contempt and therefore only sources of income from stupid people? That's REALITY shows you're thinking of. I mean, you wouldn't remake The Godfather would you? Why would you even dream of remaking The Exorcist?
