If you want to see how it was done the first time, give this a look-see, even if all you get is a good laugh.

Remains what it has always been: creepy, sadistic, well-acted nonsense.

The new version's amendments, for the most part, are distracting and sometimes unintentionally funny.

Whether or not you find the central story either credible or frightening, you will still feel considerable queasiness over the medical sequences in the picture.
