Black Xmas...

Having seen the original many moons ago, and then again fairly recently, I came across the remake on Sky Movies recently and figured I'd tape it and have a look ... what a shock, it's as shite as the vast majority of all of the other rape & pillage remakes out there at the moment.

Shite script, shite acting, shite directing ... it's just a load of shite really. It either rips out entire chunks of the original flick and just pastes in new actresses, or it goes off into weird new territory that both makes little sense, as well as acts as a hardy new yard stick, for new levels of yawn.

Seriously, why bother at all? Even the title was lazy. Shite, shite, shite, shite ... SHITE.
