The previews for this look pretty interesting to me. I have never seen the first one though, so I don't know if I should see that one first or the remake. After someone has seen them both please post a recommendation.
I would reccomend you see the original first.. Its a great film that was made for what it is.. The remake just looks like a thriller vehicle for Nic Cage. Plus if you see the remake first and its shit.. It will totally ruin the original for you..
