Oh boy am I pissed that they're remaking this... Funny how a film maligned on its initial release that also flopped at the box office is now considered a viable money-maker. Yes, it is rightly a cult classic, but how two-faced Hollywood can be! This was the movie for which they booted John Carpenter out of the big league. Well, there's no way Dwayne Johnson and team can emulate the batshit craziness and vim that courses through this beast's veins. The whole thing reeks of fanboy hyperactivity, a hive of ideas that swirl around in a terrific, nonsensical fog: Chinese black magic, triads, sewer monsters, green eyes, abductions, inflating/exploding bodies and a whorehouse to top it off. You can't copy that.
