    Saw the preview for the remake of Last House at the theater yesterday.
    It's a bit of a wild choice to say the least. The original being one of the absolute meanest, hard to watch, "feel-bad" movies ever made. Makes Funny Games look like Sesame Street.
    Garret Dillahunt plays the bad guy.. Great choice.

    The original was a revolting movie then, and still is pretty hard to watch today. Like you said, pretty much an all-around "feel bad" film. When I heard they were remaking it, the idea was a bit baffling. It looks like the direction is going in a more conventional thriller rout, rather than the bona-fide masochistic experience that was the original.

    And I co-sign completely about the casting of Dillahunt as the main villain; he was brilliant in his duel characters on Deadwood.

    Can't give you spoilers, man. Lets just say its gruesome. Gore, sex, rape, guns, violence, etc...

    the characters have a real feel to them, almost as if they aren't just characters, but real people
