[3.75/10] Don't Look Up (2010)


Don't Look Up (2010)

Short review: "Don't Look Up" is a remake of 1996 Japanese horror film with the same name, directed by Chinese filmmaker Fruit Chan, best know to the western audiences as one of the directors of "3 Extremes". In this story, evil spirits get released from old celluloid, which causes a film crew to slowly go insane over time whilst in production on a new project. Despite its intriguing plot, creepy Transylvanian settings, and a couple of good scares, "Don't Look Up" does nothing to challenge its good premise, and simply falls flat on its face. The film suffers from poor direction and editing, beyond horrible acting, one-dimensional characters and laughably bad special effects. The pathetic attempt for shocking twist at the end was the rotten cherry on top of this terrible mess of a film.

  • My Rating: 3.75/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: N/A
  • IMDb: 5.9/10

Agreed! They have to stop. Now! Gore Verbinski's "The Ring" was the only good remake of an Asian horror film. ...it was actually exceptional! :)

Yes.. the one and only.. I think if they still have any new remake idea they should only hire Verbinski as the director.

He has style, an eye for detail and know how to create suspenseful atmosphere. Yes, they should :)
