First Images from A Tale of Two Sisters Remake

As a matter of principle, I’m not into a lot of the Hollywood remakes of Asian movies. Especially when it comes to Asian horror movies, because invariably you, the American consumer, is getting a remake of an original that was little more than a rehash of the same-o same-o to begin with. If you’ve seen enough Asian horror movies as I have, you’ll come to realize that they’re all identical to the American Slasher genre — long hair ghost chick who likes to show up in the background and scare the crap out of people. But there is something different about the South Korean horror movie “A Tale of Two Sisters” (read our review of the original here). It’s not your traditional Asian horror movie, and I am intrigued at the idea of a remake.

Courtesy of IESB, two images of the film have surfaced, featuring co-stars Emily Browning and Arielle Kebbel, who plays the two sisters of the title.

A Tale of Two Sisters revolves around Anna (Emily Browning), the younger sister, who returns home after spending time in the hospital following the death of her mother. Her recovery suffers a setback when she discovers her father (David Strathairn) has become engaged to her mother’s former nurse Rachael (Elizabeth Banks). What should have been a happy family reunion becomes an escalating battle of wills between daughter and the soon-to-be step-mother. One night, Anna is visited by a ghost who warns her of Rachael’s intentions. Together Anna and her sister Alex (Arielle Kebbel) try to convince their father that his current fianc’ is not who she pretends to be and the family is in danger.

The sisters come for you in 2008.

    All remakes are fucking terrible.
    Also, they are not all identical, if people actually listened to the story being told, you’ll notice the amount of depth they have, rather than the remakes which throw in irritating pre-pubescent females with little or no acting skill other than running around in stupidly revealing clothing just to keep the audiences attention
    End of.
