Okay, remakes can either be good or bad, and this one was pretty damn good. I loved that Chris Sarandon got a small part in it, as he was "Jerry" in the original (which I love). It also made a lot of sense to me that I really enjoyed this when I saw that Marti Noxon (Buffy/Angel) wrote the screenplay, which makes me really happy. The effects were pretty awesome, the movie has the right mix of suspense, horror, and humor, all delivered at the perfect time. David Tennant was fantastic as Peter Vincent as well. I loved his job portraying that character.
I also loved the dig at "Twilight" between Anton Yelchin and Christopher Mintz-Plasse...who both also did great jobs with their roles. The movie had my heart beating, wondering what was going to happen next, and I purposely made sure not to have recently watched the original so that I could fully enjoy this movie. And I did. It will be a permanent addition to my movie collection, that's for sure!
