4.0 out of 5 stars
alternative remake, 10 July 2011
I was greatly surprised with this film, as i'am a fan of all classic horror and have seen practically everything from the 70's and 80s i was expecting this film to be another remake of a classic b movie which does not live upto its predecessor which tends to have no basis or apparent reason for it being remade in the first place....How wrong i was!
So i was greatly surprised this only followed the original films story very loosely, i also liked the music throughout the film i also enjoyed the characters for some reason..i didn't think that they were as irritating as they could have been...although a bit predictable when the action started the film carried its pace to the end, i thought the actors where performing well and i thought the effects where more than addequate.
The way i approached this film was ...Think of this as another sequel but in a different light...its a different house...a different story and the demons are quite different to the other films.
On an end note i did actually prefur this film to the original...i thought that it was a superior film in means of the acting the effects the story had a little more thought put into it and also the budget was there to make this film succeed in the way it did.
although this is still a throughback to 80's horror genre...so i would definately watch if your that sorte of fan, but don't expect something knew here for the modern horror fan.
