will be a sell out.

I'd like Porkio to weigh

Re-makin' it must be really tough job. I even doubt whether the remake could actually surpass the original. Great movie, in a sense satirical.

Those of us who have, will fer sure demand much more. I was thinkin' what he might add:

-show death-scenes
-develop the motives between Paul/Peter' s sadistic inclinations further
-give an alternate ending

But remakes rarely are that successful. Take TCM 1974 and TCM 2003.

That's just one of the reasons why the TCM remake wasn't that good. Leatherface was reduced from the impersonalized and faceless Evil to some freak with a motive.

Thass right! He was inevitable Evil in its pure form, so were his family with Grandpa to the fore.

Some humane motive were introduced in TCM 2, but only for the sake of humour and absurdity. TCM 4 was a failure, there was no Leatherface but some clown or what and the primordial atmos"fear" was lost.

We will see what Haneke creates anew.

Oh, I'd think Porkio would be all over it.


I'm pretty excited about the remake. I don't think Haneke could top what he did in the original, but I think he might be able to make it nearly as good, just different.

That movie is still the most disturbing movie I've ever seen (and his other two Cachť and Piano Teacher are both a close 2nd, see those too). I don't know anyone who has seen it who has not walked away at the end feeling permanently altered by that movie. It makes all those stupid torture Saw-Hostel films seem like cartoons.

I think it's kind of cool that he's remade it for the US though, because, as the NY Times article points out, he's sort of the anti-Tarantino. Americans are used to seeing "cool" violence, whereas Haneke's violence seems so real that you feel like you're watching him kill your friends. And most of the time he doesn't even show anything graphic, certainly not by US standards.

The biggest issue I have with the remake though (take it as a grain of salt, obviously not having seen it yet) is his choice of Naomi Watts. The woman in the original version was very plain by comparison, and thus seemed utterly real, whereas Naomi Watts is just too sexy. Then again, maybe that's the only thing that might get your average American movie goer to go see the film, so I don't doubt that Haneke knows what he is doing.

Hmm, the remake of Oceans 11 was better than the original, and some would argue that the remake of The Ring is better than the original (I think The Ring remake is better dramatically, but the original is WAY scarier).

And I think Batman Begins was heads above all the other Batman movies.

And you're all going to hate me for this one, but Tim Burton's remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory matches the images I got in my head when I read Raold Dahl's book much better than the 70s kids movie.

Here's some bad remakes though:
--Ladykillers
--The Truth About Charlie
--Manchurian Candidate
--Solaris
--Texas Chainsaw Massacre
--The Hills Have Eyes
--The Omen
--Never Say Never Again (remake of Thunderball)
--Psycho
--Rear Window
--Dark Waters (the original sucked too)

I found Irreversible to be more inspirational/devotional than upsetting...

Seriously though, Funny games is more upsetting on the whole because it's not stylized (though the fire-extinguisher head bash and the rape scene in Irreversible are very traumatizing). Because it's all backwards, however, by the end it kind of ends up being its own therapy. If it were played in chronological order, I probably wouldn't be here because I would have killed myself.

I have it on DVD with detailed shootin' how rape and fire-extinguisher bashin' were made.

Grate movie in any sense and very probable to happen, Funny Games is deeper but more fictitious, every normal family would kill Peter/Paul (is Dickie his alter ego, bad brother?), their over-niceness would be too suspicious.

Fuck the Ring, get original Japanese "Ju-On", or "Infection" - the essence of making even bunny get scared™.

Ringu-ok, the Ring-not ok (just as any remake);

Yeah, dark room, stereo, atmosfear. In fact, I could sleep after watching both, after Ju-On I simply could not-had to check my bed whether that weird girlie was coming/staring/creeping or shrieking. I have had such a a FEELING of her presence, brrrrrr...

Ju-On is pretty fucking evil (the Grudge was yet another lame-o remake). That's definitely one worth owning. Not as good of a first-date movie as Irreversible, but close...

I'd also recommend pretty much anything by Kiyoshi Kurosawa, my favourites of his are Seance and Cure. His movies aren't as creepy as Nakata, he goes more for unsettling plots than scary imagery, but he's a master too. My favourite Hideo Nakata film is still Ghost Actress, his first one. Scariest damned ghost story I've ever seen. Hard to find though, they show it on the Sundance Channel sometimes.

These ones are usually main causes of remake's failure, hopefully Haneke will behave as an artist, not famous director and leaves what's the best in the film.

Indeed. Jesus Christ! What a devilish brainwashing these poor kids are exposed to.

We have these heretics here, but have never let them grow that strong-they are just one of more or less legalized sects. I thank God I am a Catholic. And more I thank I have never liked Pepsi-now I know the reason.

Ah, btw, someone should tell Becky Harry Potter is a fictitious character, thass one thing, the other: is more of a wizard/sorcerer, definitely not a warlock. Blessing microphones and computers qualifies as a very serious mental disorder and requires immediate treatment in a asylum as the patient might be seeing imaginative enemies in everyone.

I like Tim roth though.


I like that trailer, though I doubt it's the official one since the movie isn't coming out for several more months. The choice of Edvard Grieg's song "In the Hall of the Mountain King" makes it seem like it's fun and entertaining (didn't they use that same music for the preview for Elf or some other kid's Xmas movie?). People might actually go see it.

I hope it's as
disturbing as
the original and
I hope, and I bet
Haneke does too,
that Normals get
suckered into
seeing it and it
ruins their world
for a bit.

Asian Terror Theater.

Like the ol' French Grand Guignol.


I have checked it, it is Japan Horror Theater. Consists of three movies: Infection, Premonition and Reincarnation (is being downloaded).

Kairo was excellent, but more on the psychological side and with beautifully shot abandoned places where simply nothing had really happened, at the first look.

Hope it's better than the remake of The Wicker Man.

Nobody talked about the music in Funny Games, the only music in the movie (apart from Mozart at the beginning).
I recognized John Zorn at the first note, only Zorn can make such a deranged music (Naked City).

As for the movie itself, it made me think that "Them" is still my number one as the most stressful movie I've ever seen.

I'm still curious to see the remake though, would like to see how Haneke can recreate such a "realistic" atmosphere. I can't see it possible to be honest.

I finally got around to renting this movie. It did absolutely nothing for me. I made myself stick through it, waiting for the good part. or the scary part. or the interesting part.

I guess I'm jaded.

For those of you that were frightened by it, there's good reason. A couple years ago something very similar happened here to a wonderfully kind family. I'm very sure the shitbags who did it gave some sob story about a broken down car or something, and were invited in. Then, I'm sure they followed all of the killers orders with promises of being left alive. Mom, Dad, two lovely young daughters now gone.

I hope they never make a movie about it.


The last movie that scared the bejeezus out of me was "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer". That was about 10yrs ago. After that one, I made sure all the doors and windows were locked.

I'm wondering if I had seen "Funny Games" a long time ago if I would have liked it. I need to watch Henry again to see if I've been de-sensitized to the point that I can't enjoy a good scare anymore. That would suck.

Or, maybe I just didn't like "Funny Games".

Ditto on the stopping to help folks broken down on the side of the road. For some reason, I always get dirty looks from them when I drive by, like they're expecting me to stop! I don't get it...
