It doesn't pass Screenwriting 101, taking its first turning point and not running with it and upping the stakes, rather repeating it over and over... until the hour mark. Of course that makes it dull and boring, and its melodramatic character-building scenes (and soap-opera acting) doesn't help matters. Normally deviating from the original film would be noble, but sadly this film needed to be even more generic.
This remake of the cult classic look more amateurish and lackluster than the lowbudget black and white film ever did. Worst is the acting that is non-existent and the script that rewrites the story into a unwatchable mess about rape that gets drown into tons of fake dreams, hallucinations and misdirection making this film unbearable to watch.
