Yet another unecessary remake?

They - Dreamworks - have remade The Ring, a rather good Japanese horror film.

At least we got to see the original: "having optioned the rights, Dreamworks effectively ensured the Japanese original will not be released in the US."

Remaking something that's been a hit - or doing a sequel - has always been seen as a smaller risk than doing something new.

Why else do the recent 'Psycho in color'? 'Les Diaboliques in color'? OK, the second one, like The Ring, also means you can do it in English for the subtitle-phobic, but still...

The end result will be like the Italian film industry, where someone complained that you could make Zombies 2 (or 3 or 4 or ..) but never Zombies 1.
