    I liked it. The ending scene was unexpected and shocked me. 6 years 8 months ago

    Way darker than the original film as it is so clearly more noirish than the first one with more iconographies borrowed from the horror genre.

    Also, a lot more enjoyable than the original, with the intriguing cinematography and the whole dark lighting thing going on whereas the first almost all consists of standard medium shots with a lot of scenes shot in the morning and in bright light.

    The narrative is also very different and the ending here is definitely more terrifying and exciting.

    Also, for those who haven't noticed, Kevin McCarthy; star of the original film, has a cameo in this version.
