If you're around 40, there is a good chance you saw this movie in the 80's and it scared you shitless. I think the original still holds up. I think if my seven year old watched the original, she wouldn't notice the cheesiness of the "peeling off the face" scene. She would however likely have nightmares for a week or so. Even as an adult, if my kid put her hand on a static filled TV screen and slowly say "Theyrrrrreee Heeerrrreeeee", I would likely sen her to a relative's house.

The only reason I'm curious about this remake of a childhood memory is that Sam Rami is involved. Check out the trailer and see what you think.
