Now we all know that in the vast majority of cases, the remakes will never beat the originals. Overall, I thought the remake was okay. It did good in the first half until the ending just killed it.

It was awful. Seriously awful. The original was a Spielberg work so you know a lot went into it. The use of practical special effects in it was amazing and because the movie was a good 2 hours long they gave you time to get to know the characters and let them develop. In this one everything was rushed and the use of CGI for the tree scene was obvious and terrible. The actor who played the dad was horrible. There was no character development at all. Just another example of how they've become too reliant on visual effects to make a movie scary.0
