What's turned me off is the horrible Medusa face-morphing... the hair-snakes all hissing and attacking with her ala Little Shop of Horrors... the over-the-top video game Medusa battle scenes (the original Medusa scene is still fantastic cinema storytelling!)... and the yawnsville CALIBOS... Plus there's the disappointing giant TURTLE KRAKEN. My interest is gone.
To me, this film simply looks like a rushed, crappy fantasy movie you'd expect to see on the SyFy Channel. Ok, maybe not THAT bad... but not as good as I'd hoped (which was already with low expectations). Hopefully my fears will be proven wrong and this remake will be fun flick, worthy of multiple viewings and reside within the "JimSmash Movie Library". But for now, unless I hear overwhelming praise from trusted sources, this remake looks to me to be a RENTAL.
Medusa Face MorphI wonder if Medusa's hair-snakes talk and/or sing?!
Here's the old Medusa scene:
Old Calibos (sweet):
