Cronenberg's Shivers due a remake
News has been announced that David Cronenberg's debut feature Shivers (1975) is set to get the remake treatment. In my opinion this is exactly the kind of movie that should be remade, a film with an interesting premise and great setting that was stunted by seriously low production values and laughable special effects. Of course it was of its time but there's nothing scary about a turd on a string! The remake will reportedly be directed by Danish talent Rie Rasmussen and we'll have to see if this turns out to be a superior remake...
Do you think Shivers will benefit from a remake? Am I too harsh on the original?
