Well with the remake that is currently underway, don’t expect to see the same sort of brutality that was so prevalent in the original. Craven recently talked to Rottentomatoes.com and had this to say:
“I think it’s probably the film I’ve made the hardcore fans respect the most because it’s just so brutal,” Craven said. “We don’t want to do it quite that brutal because it’s also just a great story. Bergman did the story and before that it was a medieval story so we’re going to try to split the difference.”
Craven will only be producing the remake, so he has no say in what goes into the film. If you ask me, the filmmakers need to do this remake justice. In today’s films, we have seen much worse than what was in the original film, so there is no reason for this remake to be any less than the original.
