Horror is more than what some people would have you think. In fact, it can cover so many different types of moods and thrills that it simply cheapens the genre to just think of FRIDAY THE 13th or even the SAW franchise. So why is it Hollywood can’t seem to get past the idea of trying to remake, repackage or whatever else they want to do with what was popular several years ago? Well, for one thing, “original” is a dangerous word. But it shouldn’t be. It seems like a no brainer to take an original idea, give it to skilled filmmakers and for a low budget, make something truly special.
I mention all of this because I believe that the latest collaboration between James Wan and Leigh Whannell may be that special something that horror fans have been waiting for.
