Apparently, it's a prequel/"prelude", that's to take place in the Norwegian camp seen briefly in Carpenter's '82 classic, though you wouldn't really know it from the trailer since you only hear American/English accents lol. Doesn't look all that hot. And I didn't really figure this one for being up for a remake or revisit. Kinda thought it was just slightly, barely enough, too cult and devoid of enough mass appeal to warrant a big-budget, large ad-campaign for a new addition. Still wanna rage at the idea of this, and the trailer does nothing to quell that. I'm sure I'll still end up seeing it though, just so that I can accurately know how much I should rage at it.
And yes I realize the hypocrisy of being mad about this being in the realm of a remake and being angry about that even though Carpenter's is a remake BUT THAT DOESN'T MATTER TO ME because his also isn't meant so much as to be a remake as it was meant to be a truer telling of the original-ORIGINAL source material--the book. So there.
