Original versus Remake: The Amityville Horror

Remakes are, more often than not, inferior to the original. Some remakes even eschew the source material altogether, foregoing the elements which made the original such a fun experience. Here, Best Horror Movies pits the 1979 creep-fest, The Amityville Horror, against its slightly lacking 2005 redo.

This article from Films and Things looks at the clichéd and senseless devices used by filmmakers to scare us, often rendering the film implausible.

Rosemary’s Baby and the Politics of Women’s Bodies

This fascinating article from The Huffington Post looks at the feministic themes behind Rosemary’s Baby, and its controversial director, Roman Polanski.
