Curse of the Demon Remake
Continuing with my frenetic posting pace...Actually, I've been tied up with work/life, and have been feeling generally disgusted with issues surrounding the horror genre, so, I haven't updated for awhile. Let's see if I can get back on track.
Interesting news item on esplatter.com (I wonder if they catch as much grief over their website name as I do? Hmmm.), Kenneth Branagh is planning a remake of the classic fifties horror film Curse of the Demon (also known as Night of the Demon) based on M.R. James classic story Casting the Runes. It should be a good choice for a remake, since the original, directed by legendary auteur Jacques Torneur, is not only a very good film but fairly obscure nowadays. It is also referenced in the lyrics of the theme song of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Here's hoping for the best.
