I go with the original, but ever so slightly. I like both movies, but they are brutal in different ways.
The original was more sexually graphic while the remake was more graphic with the violence. I think the original had a bit more impact in it since the daughter actually dies in it, as opposed to her showing up brutalized in the remake.
Both had brutal rape scenes, the first film being more so to me, just based off of the time frame of the movie. For 72, that was pretty shocking. Not that the re-make wasn't, but a 2009 audience was much more desensitized to that type of violence on film than a 1972 audience.
Way better villain than the newer one. Some of the scenes in the newer one may have benefited from modern gear, but I still say the tone of the original...given the time frame...wins this one. Feel free to disagree, you'd still be wrong...
