Then why remake it?

Surely theres plenty of screenplays floating around based on origional story's with the potential to be the next horror classic.

Like it or not their selling the maniac remake of the noteriety of the origional.
This means either

1.People have no clue the origional existed.
2.They hated the origional and the prospect of seeing a remake leaves them cold
3.They love the origional and have certain expectations of what the film will be like that never materialises.

Hell, its the director of p2, so it might be even grislier!

Either way I doubt Bill lustig objects considering the cash he'll be paid!

An accurate comment to be sure and one i agree with.

Looks like i'll be sticking with Lustig's legendary and loathed original.:)

Still haven't seen the original :shocked:

Skipped past the old Anchor Bay disc in That's Entertainment the other day too :tsk: . . .

Go for an import release of Maniac as ABUK's DVD is snipped.;)

Kyle makes a good point about EJ.
He was good in Sin City so maybe it can work but at the same time this movie could suck so bad even with the best actor for the job in it.

understandable that people liked him in Sin City, but he still looks like a seven year old and has no where near the sleaze and creepiness of Joe Spinell, which for me made the film.

So... who we gonna cast instead?

I was thinking Doug Hutchinson, he's great in sweaty, creepy, psycho roles (The X Files, Green Mile...) - though I recently remember reading he has turned into some kind of car crash reality tv star or something :tsk: . . .

Or maybe Joey Pants! I haven't seen him in anything in ages (probably not since The Sopranos)!

Nah, there's only so many times you can die inside with all these remakes. I think I was done around the time of The Wicker Man. The novelty of being outraged has long worn off - now it's a minor shrug and carry on with my business . . .

I died inside when I sat through the original MANIAC. A terrible film. The remake can only be an improvement imo.
