Let’s get the obvious out of the way first. Yes, this is indeed a remake of that 1976 horror classic and yes, director Kimberly Pierce has done as little as possible to distinguish her update from DePalma’s horror masterpiece.

If you are going to go through the trouble of remaking something, then put your stamp on it and make it your own.
