I was waiting on my car to get fixed so i picked up an copy of EW from a few weeks back. It mentioned that Wes Craven was going to start on a remake of PUlse(Kairo) after he finished a project with Kevin WIlliamson(woo-hoo). So i guess the RIng remake started a trend. I'm not a fan of remakes, especially being a film that is one of my favorite horror movies of all time. But i have to say i'm a little intrigued at an U.S. version directed by Craven.
I know Pulse doesn't have the following of Ringu, but i would credit it with being one of the greats when it comes to Asian horror. Right up there with Uzumaki, Audition,and Ringu.

Screw that! Craven should do something original for a change. The fact of the matter is that Hollywood simply cannot replicate the mood of these (once) unique horror films, let alone Kiyoshi Kurosawa's work.

I honestly would prefer them just to release the movies in the U.S. instead of giving second-rate remakes. And i do agree with you tyler, but i still cant help to be intrigued.

Because Joe Six Pack goes "Damn them foriegners and them thar movies... I aint paying my good ole US of A dollars on them!"
It's even worse if they're subtitled!
"Damn them writings on the scren it moves TO fast for me... and I done finished 6 grade when I were 20!"

Wes Craven is a worthless hack. He has done nothing worthwhile for horror. It seems he will miss the chance to drive a nail in the coffin of american horror yet again.
