Until this film, I had never seen a quality 3-D film. The 3-D effects in this film were sick, twisted, and absolutely amazing, doing wonders for this film, and enhancing the film experience ten fold. 3-D has definitely come a long way since the 80's, and I couldn't be more thankful. Until now most 3-D has been a headache, in more way than one. I won't mention too many of the effects, but I will mention a couple of my favorites, which were: the scene where blood and a mans entire lower jaw flies into the audience, and another when a bullet comes out into the audience, appearing so life-like that you just knew you could reach out and grab it!
The storyline to this film, was changed quite a bit from that of the original. So many things were added and altered in this storyline, that it was almost like it was a completely different movie altogether. Something I quite enjoyed, as it was fresh and not a carbon copy of the original.
In conclusion, I'm not really a big fan of remakes, in fact there have been very few that I actually did enjoy. Dawn of the dead, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, are among the few, and now I can add this to the list. Now when I see it in 2-D, on my home Flat screen, my opinion may change, but I hope it remains the same and that they give it the same High quality 3-D treatment that it got in theatres. As far as remakes go, in my book, this is one of the better ones, so I rate it 4 out of 5 stars.
