Here’s one news of an old horror movie remake that fanboys won’t be able to get their panties into a bunch about — George A. Romero, king of the zombies, wants to remake his 1971 horror movie “Season of the Witch”, also known as “Hungry Wives”. The movie follows a suburban housewife who turns to tarot cards for a reading, then becomes drawn into a world of witchcraft. Don’t you hate it when that happens?
“I’ve always felt that it’s not really a complete work,” Romero said about Witch at the recent Los Angles Comic-Con.
“We sort of managed to get a rope around it and finish it in a halfway decent way, but it’s the only one that I’d like to redo.”
I’ve never seen the movie, and haven’t heard it being heralded as a horror classic, so a remake shouldn’t piss off too much people. And for those who do get ticked, well, the guy who did it wants to redo it, so what’s your problem?
