    No way. Agree with all ya. Should leave a classic along, not do so many remakes. They were fine before. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Side note: "I want to play with Youuuuuu".

    The movie has always been 'ok'. I remember when I was a kid, it was always something that'd be playing on weekend afternoons and my mom watched it probably a million times. It's not really scary like how the book was, as it never displayed just how high of a cost was paid in those Indian burial grounds.
    You get an idea but it never comes close to the horror that comes when Gage claws (itself?) free from the grave. It also doesn't capture the mounting insanity, that frantic and hopeless energy where he knows it will only do harm but still keeps using the tainted burial ground.

    I LOVE your suggestion. Ron Perlman would be perfect. Good on you! :)

    Joe Gordon Levitt for Louis Creed. I actually wouldn't mind seeing a remake.

    Fred Gwynne was absolutely amazing as Jud Crandall - I can't think of anyone else playing him.

    I thought we all kinda broke even with the original. I mean, the actors that played the Creeds sucked...just really, really bad, but Fred Gwynn was terrific.

    Do we need a remake? Well, the way they're doing em now, I'm gonna say Hell No!

    We probably would get Joseph Gordon Suckitt for Louis Creed, and then I'd have to murder someone. Sometimes, dead is bettah...

    The actor who played the wife - just horrible to watch. Worst I have ever seen.
    Actual painful for me. gah! Took away from how bad an actor the husband was.

    Fred Gwynn was perfect with timing and speech. ayuh.

    Remake? No. Read the book. It's all there.

    That would have been better.

    Good acting! Didn't see that coming!

    I loved the optics and the feel of the movie but was disappointed in the wooden lead actors. Mary Lambert was great, actually. She matched the mood of the book perfectly. I personally wouldn't have filmed the part where Gage was hit. I think the actors' expressions mixed with the falling kite would've been enough, self-explanatory. There's a reason it is only described after the event in the novel; just too shocking.
    I would like a remake if it was once again filmed in Maine and the cast were competent. But, as NN said, I'm happy with the book and my memories of first reading it.

    Is Mary Lambert the wife? erhg. I wanted to say her lines for her.
    Upset me. c'mon ... choke the words out.. Turn around slowly again- stiff neck sad eyes, and I'm gonna have to turn this off.

    I did not mind the truck scene too much. What got me in the book and the movie was

    Little Gage falling out of the coffin after the fight. Horribles.
