This was the first scary movie I ever watched and the reason I became obsessed with all things horror. My best friend Jessica and I would then every weekend ask our parents to take us to Blockbuster to rent another flick but none ever stood the test of time quite like this one.
When I first found out they were remaking my all-time favorite, I had reservations. "LEAVE IT ALONE!" was my initial reaction. Then I found out who had been cast. Jon Lithgow?? Are you kidding?? This version looks to be more closely tied to the book, which is a major plus.
I'm already loving it based on the trailer, so let me know what you think!
PS - below is the main reason I was terrified...that dadgum sister...
