John Carpenter's version of the original story is compelling and absolutely entertaining.

It's the kind of film that appears to have been made by filmmakers who don't understand a thing about storytelling, pacing, tone, or atmosphere, which is only made all the more shocking by the fact that it was directed by the legendary John Carpenter.

The real shock came when I noticed that a woman filing out of the premiere screening beside me had actually marked her rating card with an "excellent" grade.
