So, Lee picked up the 1980 version and I got to thinking which of these I like better. Easy pick for me, the 1980 original. I've seen the 2005 version and I have the DVD in my collection, but it doesn't hold a candle to the original for me.
Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Atkins, Adrienne Barbeau, and John Carpenter directing. Scary and fun movie that really gets you on the edge of your seat at times. Original all the way for me, but what about you?
I've only seen the 2005 remake, and I have to say I really enjoy the film? Is it great? No, but I get to sit there and be entertained. I'm going with undecided though because I do want to see the original.
Watched the original a couple of times since this was posted and I've caught the remake and fell asleep to it a few times on TV as well, lol. The original really kills the remake. The characters are better, the story is better and the story just seems to flow better. This is another movie that really flies by.
