Took me a while to figure out what you were talking about.

I saw the trailer when I went to the movies last month. Looked pretty scary, but King's work hasn't always translated to movies well. I'd probably wait until it is streaming.

I suspect there is an inverse relationship between age and an interest in horror movies.

I won't pay for It.

I'll watch It whenever it comes on Amazon Prime or TV.

But there's no point in the remake. No one can match Tim Curry. It's like remaking Rocky Horror. Or every lame production of Streetcar Named Desire that doesn't have Marlon Brando. Or making another Batman movie featuring the Joker without Heath Ledger. Pointless.

This. The Shining is the only one that worked well, mostly thanks to Jack.

I sat one seat away from him at the (hardtop) movies once when we saw the Joe Bob Briggs Drive in Movie Festival. My exwife sat on the other side, and she's a big fan of his but didn't want to sit next to "the creepy looking guy", especially when he was using a yardstick to measure the applause of the contestants for the Miss Custom Body portion of the program. She was pretty disappointed to find out it was him when we read about it in the paper the next day.

It seems like every film released in the past 5 years has been a remake, sequel, reboot or reboot of a reboot.

Well when writers are fired, and bean counters think they have "the formula" for sucess in Hollywood... that's all you're gonna get... recycled ideas...

There's an idea I ran across before that says there are a certain number of stories, and most movies are variations on these plots. It sure makes sense when you think about it.

I gather that the other directors didn't know Jack?

Didn't hurt to have Stanley Kubrick directing either. I liked The Stand mini series.

I forgot about Misery, which was on par with The Shining...IMO.
