Whaaa?

Quote:
In conjunction with Maverick Films and Integrated Films and Management, Emmett/Furla Films, a wholly owned subsidiary of Family Room Entertainment Corporation, has announced that they are in final negotiations to acquire the rights to remake the 1980 horror classic, Terror Train. The original picture, which was directed by Roger Spottiswoode and starred Jamie Lee Curtis, follows a group of college coeds being terrorized by a masked killer during a New Year's Masquerade on a chartered train.

Emmett/Furla and Integrated recently partnered to set up a remake of the horror classic The Amityville Horror with NuImage and Dimension Films.

Co-chairs of Family Room Entertainment Randall Emmett and George Furla stated: "We are very excited to be re-teaming with Steve (Whitney) and Andy (Trapani) on another horror remake. We are also thrilled to be working with Maverick Films, who bring an extraordinary depth of creative resources."

"Suspense on a train is a classic formula that's been relatively unexplored in recent years," said Andy Trapani and Steve Whitney of Integrated Films and Management.

(I do believe that the article quoted above is actually LONGER than the original Terror Train screenplay.)

Ooh and I hope they get David Blaine to play the David Copperfield part.

Maybe someone will actually watch it this time.

the biggest irony, of course, is that this low-grade gory schlockfest will be produced by an outfit called "Family Room Entertainment". Because, really, what better to entertain the entire family with than a movie called TERROR TRAIN

Best line: "Suspense on a train is a classic formula that's been relatively unexplored in recent years." Someone said that. About Terror Train.

Wonderful.

Isn't this the movie with the funny nose and glasses killer?

You gotta be fucking kidding me.

Another remake, this time from a lame-ass teen-horror flick.

Geez... at least the old one had Jamie Lee Curtis, when she was hotter than hell.

OK, quick. Someone write a screenplay with me. What should we make it?

Prom Night? The Boogens? Ooh, how about The House on Sorority Row? The Dorm That Dripped Blood? Curtains!

That's it. I'm writing a remake of Curtains.

And then a remake of Chopping Mall.

Sure

I really don't like the idea of horror remakes, as I'd rather see them try and do something original. But I do like that they're remaking some movies that weren't so good, like Terror Train, Prom Night, and The Amityville Horror - because at least one of those movies had potential that wasn't fully realized, and maybe the on the second-go-round it will be. But stay the fuck away from the rest of the classics, k.

Hah, hah, hah, don't know why but that line struck me as hilarious. Having never seen the original, I immediately thought of someone chopping up Hercule Poirot on the Orient Express.
