oldboynikku’s review published on Letterboxd:
A 2.5 hour prentious mind-fuck of a remake. It’s artsy element constantly outshines the horror, but it still has some nice horrifcly done scenes and delivers the nightmare fuel. What I DIDN’T like about the film was on all the technically levels. The editing was so weird, the cinematography and shots were awful, and the directing was full of terrible choices. Even the script/story wasn’t sure what it was doing or what it wanted to be. There were added storylines and characters that made absolutely NO sense and delivered nothing but wasted time onto the original story. If you’re going to be a protencious arthouse style horror film, at least gather the skills to pull it off. I wouldn’t dream of attempting something like this, and neither should they. It’s infortunate because it has some very redeeming elements to it.
