One of the best because it 'went there.'
Let me explain what I mean by saying that it "went there."
For the past eighteen years , or so , the horror/suspense/thriller genres have suffered because they've been too "politically correct." They always stop short of delivering the goods , so to speak.
Rarely in recent films do you see children being murdered. They're usually saved at the last minute or totally off-limits of being killed at all because it seems too shocking for the audience.
This film "went there" because of the fact that the children were actually murdered and that made this movie very "real" and truly horrific.
It's things like this that makes a horror movie a horror movie , not a predictable , watered-down , formulaic movie that we see all of the time nowadays.
I also like how I couldn't really predict what was going to happen next. I can always figure out what's going to happen next in the horror films of today because the directors have studied and copied from the horror films of the past instead of being original.
I haven't seen the remake but , let's just say I'd rather see a "real" film with great acting as opposed to the latest teeny-bopper actress wearing a pound of lipgloss and talking like a valley girl.
Everything about this film is great. The music is on point and the acting is fantastic.
