Oh, remakes. We try not to dismiss you offhand, we really do. We try to be open to the possibility that you may actually be valid as films in your own right, and that you might offer us something new and interesting that we didn’t get from the original film on which you have modelled yourself. Now and then, you manage to do so. But sometimes… damn it all, sometimes you really don’t do yourself any favours.

Watch the trailer for Who Can Kill A Child, then watch the trailer for the upcoming remake Come Out and Play, and prepare yourself for a truly overwhelming sense of deja vu. And almost certainly an even stronger sense of “why fucking bother.”
