Episode #210: Remakes for Debate III

May 5th, 2017

Death Game (1977) versus Knock Knock (2015)

It should be noted up front that the Sluts LOVE John Wick (& #2!).  Here is that episode as evidence.  Not sure how it wasn't mentioned, to be honest.

Right, right - onto the actual episode description.  Matt compares a remake with a different name.  Were they distancing themselves from the original (like Disney from the original Tron?) despite having many from the old film as producers?  The old title does kinda sound like a slasher title...  
If nothing else, these might sell themselves with women invading homes as the plot.  Some who have seen the older film may want to defend it, but we'd be curious if it feels the same to watch it today after 40 years.  Does the new version offer a different feel, or enough of a similar feel?  Tune in & find out!

Notes:  When he said Medea, he meant the Greek tragedy, not the modern comedy movie tragedies.
