The script made Farrell come off more as just a psychotic perv than a bloodthirsty vampire. I was pretty bummed after watching that remake. He just wasn't quite Jerry Dandridge enough.

I dunno, in my opinion, a lot of these remakes could have and should have been made as a stand alone flick instead of a remake. 90% of the time they only use the first movie as a basis for their "new and improved" ideas. They end up changing so many things that it doesn't even seem like a remake. I'm a firm believer that Hollywood should focus more on making new and original flicks instead of trying to cash in on pre-existing classics. But what do I know? I'm a movie fan, not a Hollywood accountant. Think of it this way, if AMC created a remake TV series based on Romero's Night of the Living Dead instead of Robert Kirkman's original The Walking Dead graphic novel, I think it might have tanked and not lasted past episode 3. There is so much good material out there for producers to work with. I just get baffled why they keep insisting on rolling the dice with remaking classics.
