411Mania: The Town That Dreaded Sundown, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, is essentially both a slick remake of the 1976 original directed by Charles B. Pierce, and a sort of sequel to that movie. I don’t quite understand why it isn’t just one of those things as being both really doesn’t add anything to the movie (it actually makes parts of the plot kind of confusing). If you’re going to remake a movie why not just remake the dang movie? Once you get beyond that bit of weirdness, though, The Town That Dreaded Sundown is well made, scary, and features one of the best casts in slasher movie history.
