95% of the remake was shot in order. They did this because a lot of the film takes place in a controlled environment and the level of blood and violence gets worse and worse as the film progresses. By shooting in order, they can throw blood on the walls and not worry it will mess up another shot where it needed to be clean. See more »
The double barrel shotgun keeps changing. It goes from having a pistol grip stock to a full stock. See more »
While the theatrical release was uncut, the German DVD release was cut by ca. 1 minute to to keep its "Not under 18" rating from the FSK. The uncut version was released with a SPIO/JK approval (resulting in various sale restrictions). See more »
It's a different film from the original,but this is an incredible Horror 7.9/10
I can't understand the Fanboys and the Fanboy wannabe's giving this excellent Horror any sort of a chance, because they have this infantile manner where they simply give a film 1/10 which is a pathetic attempt at proving themselves right. I know for a fact they have been hanging about the reviews to give a bad score for every review that says anything positive about this film. I watched the reviews myself one afternoon and there is a review which is one of the last reviews thanks to the Fanboys and when the header was changed to show admiration for the film it went from 98/277 to 91/277 over the course of a few hours. That is "proof positive" that this is going on. Pretty pathetic if you ask me.
This film should not be compared with 'The Evil Dead' because they may have the same/similar characters 'and' has been approved by Bruce and Raime but one is a comedy and this is clearly not. It's a hard core gross out Horror and has perhaps the most graphic scenes ever to grace the silver screen. This follows the story faithfully but lacks any humour at all. I have mixed feelings about Comedy/Horror because most of the time the Comedy is used to allow the filmmaker (I mean the "not very good" film makers) to use it like when they know they can't pull off any real scares so they dumb it down and have the actors doing the same take, more or less but get them to do it in a silly way. This movie is all scares and hacking bits off etc. If you're looking for atrocious acting and loads of blood then this film is definitely you.
Brilliant scary movie. I strongly advise you to go see this but make sure you have company with you for both moral and physical support.
You have been reading Buster Gonad and his unfeasibly large testicles.
