Love this movie. One of those rare instances where the reboot is as enjoyable as the original.
Great cast, great story. Always tense and a sense of paranoia (reminding me of John Carpenter's The Thing). Overall I think it could have been a little bit gorier (not to say there weren't any gory scenes -cough- the pitchfork -cough-). but everything else was incredibly enjoyable.
Great film. A little corny in places but they brought it back again with a cool ending.
Even better than the original.
This is a really great remake, dark, tense, gory, very much worth a watch!
