THE WATCHER IN THE WOODS Remake Will Be Coming to DVD From...WHERE?

Ring around the rosies, it was.... Call me crazy, but I'm a bit baffled. How come I didn't know anything about this?? Well, it most likely was due to the fact that the remake starring the always fantastic Anjelica Huston debuted last year in October...on the Lifetime Channel!

I Don't Have Anything Against the Lifetime Channel, Mind You.... But a DISNEY HORROR CLASSIC?



It doesn't help that I generally don't watch cable, though. So this isn't a stab on Lifetime. But, hey, cool.

You may have seen me mention something about this film (and book) before, having been adapted into a 1980 Disney horror film (for kids!) before. The truly iconic novel was done proud by the House of Mouse, for sure, as the movie gave me nightmares about mirrors and rings around the rosies for months after the fact.

Not to mention an affinity for spelling a name on a window...backwards. Oh, yes.

But I do have to say the trailer as you'll see here does show some interesting promise. It's eerie. Just like how the story should be. It perhaps did Lifetime well, which is why only a year later we're getting this remake on DVD.

I Am, However, Worried That This Is a Remake of a Horror Classic


But as you know, I'm not against remakes. Above all iconic horror films, however, the true classics of my childhood do need to be left alone. But you never know: Anjelica Huston, man. Who knows: I may check out this remake of THE WATCHER OF THE WOODS and not have my entire childhood completely raped.

Fun fact: this remake was directed by Melissa Joan Hart. Sabrina the f*cking teenage witch.

Why THE FACULTY Has so Much in Common With Body Snatchers and Pink Floyd

The Faculty took the idea of the invasion and simply localized it. Instead of a planet -- everyone is in danger, no discrimination, nothing to signify what these aliens want or are looking for -- the alien(s) instead focused their effect on just those few teachers. Now there's an interesting high concept.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.

'It Follows': Not Just a Cautionary Tale About Casual Sex

And in all its basic-ness, you'd be shocked to realize that it's not just a linear-type film with one main idea. There are actually a ton of deep meanings behind all of the frames, the shots, the sequences, the scenes. With obviously the underlying principle, the whole point of it: meaningless sex is bad!
