Topic: town that dreaded sundown remake

since its suppose to begin filming this springs,it'll likely hit theatres somewhere between 2014 and 2015 , whos looking forward to it

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

Enh.  I'm a fan of the original despite its many flaws, but I don't see a need to remake it specifically.  It's based on the case of the Phantom Killer in Texarkana in the 40s, but there are a dozen Jack the Ripper movies and none are remakes of the other; I'd prefer a new movie based on the same case.

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

I'm not for one or  two reasons 1. i hated the original and 2. it's a remake.

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

This is the first time I heard of a remake... really? I'm too tired to check it out online so....

fuckit The original was pretty good so I'll keep it as that!

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

I enjoyed the original.  Not sure if a remake is needed, but like lon said, a new movie on the same crimes would be good.

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

haha well I really dont know.... I keep thinking of our old friend RIP who had the killer as his avatar man I miss that fuckin drunk!

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

I haven't actually seen the original, had it recommended to me recently though so I probably will see it soon. Like Lon said though, why not make a totally new movie based on the crimes? Originality is slowly dying and it's a sad, sad thing sad

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

Yeah, I'm with Lon and DG.  Ever since seeing it as a kid, and because my dad plays the Trombone, the scene with the knife on the end of the Trombone Slide has always stuck with me.

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

No..... originality is THE THING! ... but for some reason the new generations need a version they can relate to instaed of relating to the original version of a film... sorry but fuck the new generations, they suck lol

too right Beth!

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

Originality died in Hollywood a long time ago, but foreign and independent film makers are still going strong, hence all the Hollywood remakes of their films. smile

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

Its a sad sad thing in this hole world wolfy

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

See.... but why do you people keep buying tickets to see a remake???

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

I love the original, but I wouldn't mind seeing a remake. Hopefully they'll be able to bring back the grindhouse feel the original had.

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

Same here.  This was one of the first flicks of its type that I saw when I was very young (it was always late night creature features and Universal horror flicks up 'til my teens) and I remember seeing that and the killer seemed so ferocious during that scene.  I was only eight or nine at the time, but still.  Also, the sequence with Dawn Welles got to me, too.  Despite the heinous comedy relief and very little actual blood, Sundown does have a couple rather brutal scenes.

Re: town that dreaded sundown remake

Yeah, the way that he blew into the mouth piece, I can still hear that sound.  And having grown up watching Gilligan's Island, I always had the hots for Dawn Wells.  For my money Mary Ann's looks beat Ginger's hands down.  Funny, she use to own a house, more like an mansion, a couple of blocks away from my parent's house.  As kids, we use to sneak around the ditch that ran behind her house and peek through the hedges hoping to catch a glimpse.  Never saw her there though. sad
