This movie should have been excellent. The subtle 1942 version lacked little except more bite and a modern update should have provided just that. Add the excellent David Bowie theme song and a sexy (and frequently nude) Nastassia Kinski, how could you go wrong? Well, this travesty of a movie managed to get everything else wrong. The suspense is totally lacking, the dialogue is boring, the pacing is slow, there are huge logical flaws everywhere concerning the characters motivations, actions and the rules to which the transformation applies. A few attempts at humour are cringe-worthy (look, boats), the actors deliver uninteresting performances and the directing is all over the place. I disliked this movie, and I was sure there was no way that was going to happen!
This should have been made by Brian de Palma :(
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
