WILL IT BE a WORTHY THRILLER...OR a HITCH-CROCK?? THIS WHOLLY UNNECESSARY RE-MAKE (FROM a DIRECTOR WHOSE PAST CREDITS INCLUDE BRITNEY SPEARS MUSIC VIDEOS!) MAKES 2007 3-for-3 for BAD MOVIES: THREE WEEKS, THREE OBVIOUS CHOICES for WORST NEW MOVIE of the WEAK...

Another of the executives major faults is that they're getting increasingly impatient with the remakes they insist on.  I think there should be a gap of about 30 years between an original and a remake so that each generation can smoothly have its own version.  Taking a film only 20 years old runs a high risk of alienating the first ones' base, many of whom are still in the Holy Demographic Estate themselves.  The trailers have done nothing to inspire any confidence for me in it, either.  I don't think'll it'll be a major nominee--far worse horror films have sadly seen the light of day over the last 12 months--but it might be worth a nod or two somewhere.

Let's see, Primeval + this movie + now, Blood and Chocolate makes that 3 bad horror movies of 2007, which makes it about 300 lousy horror movies. But soon, we'll have another one added in. That would be THE MESSENGERS, which is my pick as worst new movie of the weak of February 2. You've seen the TV ads for that film, Head RAZZ, and you think it will be lame as well? 

Response from Head RAZZBerry: Wanna know my opinion of MESSENGERS (or express your own) -- Here's a LINK to our Forum regarding it. And yes, it was picked as Worst of the Weak...

The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.

You can't judge things by their trailers. That's what I did with Saw, refusing to watch it because I thought it was mindless blood and gore, which is pointless. Then I decided to watch it and it was one of the best movies i've seen! And The Messengers is a thriller and I'm protecting it because the girl from Panic Room stars in it! The Hitcher won't get a razzie nomintation because critics didn't think it was half bad.

Ok, moviewizguy, perhaps you just don't know anything about horror movies. I've seen this one, and in my point of view, it looked like a mixture of TCM and The Amytville Horror.

I never watched the original movie - IMO, anyone dumb enough to pick up a hitcher (in a hollywood movie! :P )  deserves what they get. It just never appealed, and I like horror movies in general.

Why in the nine hells would I want to see a remake? Yet another case of a Stupid Hollywood Idea On a Cocktail Napkin.

Unfortunately I couldn't nominate or vote on it in the Razzes, as it makes my list of Movies I'll Never Watch (Titanic is #1).

The critics might not think it was half bad, but I do.

I saw it. Mediocre, but it may potentionally be a "Worst Remake or Sequel" in my opinion. Don't see any other awards for it though. I mean, it's Sean Bean, guys. He's a great actor. Terribly wasted here, but it wasn't his fault.

Why oh why do these studios keep on making these uninspired horror movie remakes? "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "The Hills Have Eyes", "When A Stranger Calls", and so many others that I can't think of at the top of my head. The next horror movie remake is "Halloween". It's directed by Rob Zombie, who actually made a very good horror movie called "The Devil's Rejects". I hope he does a good job with "Halloween" because the original is still one of the most frightening films I've ever seen. And I hope they won't make 30,000 sequels after this one either. How many times does Michael Myers have to be killed until he's dead. He's been blown up, shot, stabbed, his head was chopped off, he's been hung, and every possible way a person could die. Ughhhh!!!!

Well, they haven't tried shoving an H-bomb down his throat or having him eaten by a rabid lion yet, if they want something to shoot for...

This was OK, but not as good as the original one.

It was alright
nothing special
I do think Sophia Bush is a talented actress, it shows in this although I am not a fan of her because she is a very nasty person (i should know)
