10/14/18, Showtime. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would, but boy, it's a mess. It can't seem to nail down whether it wants to be a black, black comedy, a horror movie, or both. You would think that Frank Oz and Paul Rudnick would be right for this, but it just goes off the rails really fast. The final shot is quite funny, though, and Kidman, Broderick, and Close all give fun performances that are worth a look.
It has a few notes of decent comedy, and the cast is pitch perfect, but the script just doesn't deliver on what a campy remake of a horror movie should be. And the already paltry political thrust of the original disappears behind its lazy "progressive" self-satisfaction.
