I have a question for you: Did you actually, literally shudder when you read the post’s title? I did, when I read the news. Deep, deep down in my very soul, I shuddered. However, there is one small comfort to all this: Hollywood isn’t behind it. No, they haven’t fallen that far, yet. This is an indie production.
The infamous Manos: The Hands of Fate, arguably- No, screw that. It IS the worst movie of all time. Anyway, it’s being remade by Staticosche Productions. Their teaser trailers — which, while revealing nothing, can be found here — peg it for a winter 2008 release, but I wouldn’t bet on it, myself. And much like the Plan 9 remake, they’re aiming for a serious, scary take on the original story.
There’s no mention of Torgo in the brief synopsis on their MySpace page, but if he’s not in the film, shit will get busted up. Mark my words: Riots in the streets. And there’s still no word on when Hollywood will bottom-out and release their big-budget remake. As you can see above, Brad Pitt would make one sexy perverted mangoat. Which is, incidentally, just the way Angelina likes ‘em.
