    That was the original one. I mean the remake they did a few years back on TNT or something.

    I haven't watched either Salem's Lot and the novel is one of the few early King's novels that I haven't read.

    Oh, and if anything, that ass shaking scene in Wicker Man was one of the highlights of my youth almost as much as watching Lifeforce.

    Oh man, then you have to see the Soul/Mason one. I don't know about Lowe's version, but the original is the badass. Got so scared when i saw that I almost peed myself.

    Oh I've seen it. I think I watched it with my dad when I was like 8. I've seen it since as well. Just wasn't sure what others thought of the remake. I was surprisingly entertained.

    Too mainstream? Not enough Tom Hardy?

    Up yours.

    I voted for Trick'r'Treat because Winsomeore needs a reason to watch it. ****, I almost started writing a review. Nevermind...later.

    I checked out the summary at imdb. Looks like a Night Gallery-type of pic. Four stories for the price of one movie. Excellent value!!!

    I watched a very good Michael Caine movie this weekend. From 2003, "The Statement", with Tilda Swinton, Alan Bates, John Neville....just a great cast. Enjoyed it very much. Not a great flick, but, worth watching for Caine's portrayal of a pathetic old Nazi on the run.

    The Statement

    Re: The Wicker Man (1973). Looks like there are two versions out there:

    The version first released was almost completely butchered from an original, almost grandiose cut of 102 minutes to a more concise 87. Christopher Lee has always maintained that this was a crime against the greatest piece of art with which he had ever been involved. The original negatives were then accidentally thrown out!

    When a fuller version finally surfaced in 2001, Lee's contentions were (at least in part) proved. The film was overall improved, and save for a couple of points of rather clumsy editing (the flashbacks Edward Woodward has as the penny drops spring to mind) and the pointless scenes before the flight to the island, it ran more smoothly and made more sense.

    The film's greatest asset comes through in whichever version you actually see.
