The 31 Days of Horror- #16

"One of the funniest horror comedies ever, and yet another remake that butchers the original..."

The Hidden Gem:
The Master says: At the point where one of the characters asks "Who's driving the car?" and they cut to a shot of an insane sheep driving the car while screaming "baa!", I fell in love with this movie. Genetically mutated sheep going berserk and killing any human that gets in their way... how can you not love that? Yes it's goofy, but man is it fun to watch and funny as hell. Australia seems to have had a knack this decade for giving the world some interesting and fun Horror flicks, and this one is definitely one of their best efforts.

The Train Wreck:
The Master says: Rutger Hauer should be pissed-off knowing that this tepid remake of his 1986 classic even exists. This went from being a gripping story about two ordinary people being terrorized for no reason at all, by a truly unbalanced maniac (original), to a couple of hip gap models being chased up and down the road by someone who sure looks like he's "crazy" (remake.) Bland, devoid of anything interesting, and a waste of Sean Bean's talent, this movie should be left by the side of the road... because it's The Hitcher, get it? Don't pick it up like you would a hitcher... never mind."
