The Movie: The debut production of Platinum Dunes, Michael Bay's attempt to remake classic horror, one movie at a time.
Why It Was Hated: The choice of music video maker Marcus Nispel as director set the house style for Platinum Dunes - glossy, bloody and nowhere near as unsettling or thought-provoking as Tobe Hooper's original.
Typical Online Review: "Confused yet? Bored, even? I sure was. For as many changes of scenery as TCMtR has, all of them look the same. I understand how that might be intentional--that's part of the horror, right? that there's no escape?--but how many near-identical shots of Jessica Biel running and hiding and shivering and sucking in her breath in terror are necessary to tell the story?"
