The Invasion Continues With The Straw Dogs Remake


Here's the new poster, which I think is pretty horrible, for the upcoming remake of Sam Peckinpah's movie of the same name. That movie, as I mention elsewhere in the Lair was one of the original home invasion flick, and what with class flicks such as Kidnapped out there I can only wonder how this will turn out. In an ideal world it'll be a solid remake along the lines of Last House on the Left or I Spit on your Grave. However, if the trailer is anything to go by I think we are in for a tiresome time...

SYNOPSIS
David and Amy Sumner (James Marsden and Kate Bosworth), a Hollywood screenwriter and his actress wife, return to her small hometown in the deep South to prepare the family home for sale after her father’s death. Once there, tensions build in their marriage and old conflicts re-emerge with the locals, including Amy’s ex-boyfriend Charlie (Alexander Skarsgård), leading to a violent confrontation.
 

Thanks to Marc at Brutal as Hell for bringing the poster to my attention, however bad it is. As for the trailer, you can make your own minds up....

Straw Dogs is set for a September 16th release.

Interesting, remakes will always happen you just have to hope there good. Plus who knows maybe they'll base it on the book The Siege of Trencher's Farm (1969) a little not making it a so so remake, anywho I suppose I will watch it, I like James Marsden.

The 1971 original was a ludicrously over-rated pile of dog-shit.
