OK, I have to admit, I expected the remake to be your typical Hollywood hatchet job, but it wasn't. They actually got it right, and it turned out far scarier than I expected it to.
Abby vs. Eli was a dead heat, Eli was a little more empty, whereas Abby was a little less...dead, if you'll pardon the pun. Owen was the weaker link in the pair, as his situation seemed more "Hollywood" tough times, where Oskar was being brutalized.
- I have to say it, I liked spoken English rather than subtitles. Yes I'm an enlightened soul but with subtitles you lose the vocal inflection.
Well, jeez, you call yourself a film fan? Take the effort and learn Swedish to enjoy the movie properly like I did!....
