  1. Be back properly soon!

  2. I took a wrong turn and I just kept goin'

  3. Have you watched the original with Gregory Peck and Robert Mitchum. Great movie. Ah, man, not seen that for nigh on 20 years but remember it being a brilliant classic. Robert Mitchum played great baddies. He was especially good in Night of the Hunter. Chilling. (Definitely inspired a lot of Nick Cave' s southern preacher imagery). Not sure if the original is better - long time since I've seen it but but you really can't go wrong with Peck and Mitchum. Robert Mitchum did menacing just about better than anyone. Been a long time since I've seen either film too - think I was but a teen. I do remember being impressed by the original as prior to seeing it I was more used to seeing Robert Mitchum playing softer characters like the cuckold priest in Ryan's Daughter, so to see him play a baddie was a nice surprise. Both versions are equally good. You do find with old black and white films though that they did menace in a way that you don't really see/get any more. These days it's all about the violence and gore whereas back then it was more about the psychological aspect of fear and menace. Can you imagine if they did a remake of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, just to pick a classic example? It'd be more about the bitching and fighting and general nastiness than on the psychology of sibling rivalry. As for Peck, he was amazing in Boys from Brazil , especially as he was cast against type and had rare role as a screen baddie (he played Dr Joseph Mengle and was trying to clone Hitler!). Brilliantly sinister!
