VAULTCAST: Conversations in the Dark... w/Doug Plomitallo

Remakes are indeed such a ripe subject for endless pontification, that this week in CitD, I return to the well for more! This time around, I'm joined by Doug Plomitallo, creator of the horror anthology web series Scared Stiff. We tackle some of the many problems with remakes, and why those within the horror film industry seem to be so obsessed with them. We also get off on a few long-winded tangents I found too entertaining to edit out, so enjoy!

You guys bring up an interesting point about the original series not even being dead in the water before it gets the reboot/remake treatment. It's just really hard to get on board with something that is still burned into our subconscious. I really don't get the rationale behind filmmakers sometimes, despite the 'idea' that it brings in kids that don't know any better.

It's a very cynical decision-making process, unfortunately. The best we can for is that once in a while we actually get a decent, or even really great remake as a by-product.
