Hollywood Splat Pics and Horrific Indies
Will 2010 be a festive romp of eye-gouging, throat-slitting, and disemboweling? Or will it be another crap-tacular lineup of lame remakes and boring PG-13 drivel? Let's see what the year has in store.
Theatrical release date: February 12
A tornado of delays, negative rumors, and other bad press have threatened to engulf this remake -- excuse me, re-imagining. Are Universal execs micromanaging dicks, or is the film so bad that it needs all the help it can get? No one will know for sure until February 12, when The Wolfman finally hits theaters. One good omen: Danny Elfman's old-school classical score has been reinstated in the film, after it got pulled at the eleventh hour. (After all, Elfman has created some great horror scores, including nearly all of Tim Burton's films and the Tales From the Crypt theme, to name a few.) As a huge fan of the original incarnation of The Wolf Man (the 1941 version starring Lon Chaney Jr.), I pray to the full moon that Universal can pull this off.
