This was such a good remake. It used the gore and violence to its advantage and made something that really made you cringe. I know that isn't everyone's kind of horror, but for those that don't get grossed out by people hacking off their own limbs with an electric meat carver, it's perfect.
Nothing will ever beat an original, that's a pretty well known fact. But putting comparisons aside this movie had enough action to hold its own. I don't think it will ever need a sequel, EVER! So we will always have the original series to look back on for the ridiculousness it was. This remake, though, I feel was a little bit more serious.
I really enjoyed it, and it's a movie I go back to frequently when I'm in the mood for some horror.
