"Creepshow" Falls Prey to the Remake Machine

by | October 21, 2005 | Comments

The Hollywood Reporter greets us with news of yet another horror remake. If "Dawn of the Dead," "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," "House of Wax," "The Amityville Horror," and "The Fog" haven’t yet burnt you out on the whole remake schpiel, then get ready for a remake of the 1982 George Romero / Stephen King collaboration known as "Creepshow."

"Although in the original anthology the stories — which were written in the old 1950s EC Comics style — were unconnected, the plan is to structure the new movie a la "Go," where individual stories will have interconnected characters and situations."

Forgive my disruntled demeanor upon hearing this news, but perhaps someone at WB needs a refresher course on what the word "anthology" means. With "interconnected characters and situations," you have what’s generally known as a "long story."
