Remake News: American Werewolf, Bride of Frankenstein and More


An American Werewolf in London: While fans are reminiscing over Michael Jackson’s Thriller video, it seems just appropriate that a remake of John Landis’ horror film is in the works. (Werewolf was the inspiration for the music video.) In the 1981 original, two college students (David Naughton and Griffin Dunne) are attacked by the creature while backpacking. The survivor eventually goes on to attack other victims. Dimension Films has tapped Sean and Bryan Furst (Daybreakers) to produce.

Red Dawn Scheduled for Remake

Red Dawn

Almost 25 years after it was originally released, it’s been announced that is now up for the inevitable remake. Wolverines!

In 1984, the Cold War era movie - the first movie to be rated PG-13 - saw a group of high schoolers head for the woods after the Soviets and Cubans invaded America. With the weapons they had stockpiled, the teens did their best to wreak havoc on the foreign troops. (You can read my review of the Red Dawn Collector’s Edition here.)

Believing there’s no better time to revisit a story about an invasion on U.S. soil, MGM has greenlighted an update of its cult classic.

DVD REVIEW:  Red Dawn: Collector’s Edition

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Action, Drama, DVD Reviews

Red DawnVanessa Williams giving up her Miss America Crown….the Summer Olympics in LA….The Cars stealing MTV’s Best Video Award from Michael Jackson….and Tommy Howell drinking deer blood on Red Dawn.  These were things I distinctly remember from 1984.

I can’t even tell you how many times I watched Red Dawn around that time….nor do I really remember why.  Could it have been because my best friend loved Darren Dalton?  Was it because I was fascinated seeing Ponyboy Curtis from The Outsiders (Howell) turn into a cold-hearted Wolverine?  Was it the newly introduced PG-13 rating?  Maybe it was because young women (Jennifer Grey, Lea Thompson) got to help take down the Russians?  (This was the era of the Cold War after all).  So when I heard that they were coming out with a collector’s edition of Red Dawn, I was all over it.

For those who can’t remember the 23-year-old film, here’s a quick refresher:  The movie begins with Soviet paratroopers landing behind a high school.  They immediately start shooting at the students gawking through their classroom window.  It seems the Soviets and Cubans have invaded the US and have basically started WWIII.  A group of teens drives into the woods with the weapons they have stockpiled.  Although they struggle being away from their families, they eventually create their own insurgency and do their best to wreak havoc on the foreign troops.
