No
This is another movie that cannot and should not be remade.

The low budget cheese was 90% of the appeal in the first place.

Also, as great as Dinklage is, this is some odd casting.

I just don't know how much longer they can keep their hands off of Scanners and Re-animator, with "better" fx.  Having said that, I wouldn't be heartbroken if someone took a swing at a Videodrome update..

Scanners could be okay. Re-Animator would probably lose all of the dark humor and become straight-up horror.

Videodrome would be so radically different now with internet streaming versus old media that I doubt it would be recognizable. It would probably end up like a crazy Black Mirror episode.

And yet I can't get a 4k transfer of "Society"

Sure, remake it. I'll see it.

This!

That film is the first time I saw him.   I love that film and have, still, a bit of a crush on him.

At 51 he was at just the right age when it came out originally that the conversation probably went like:

Producer: We were thinking about doing a remake of Toxic Avenger and ...

Dinklage: I'm in

Producer: ... we were wondering if you ...

Dinklage: Sign me up

Producer: ... would like to ...

Dinklage: Where do I sign?

Producer: ... be in it?

if they going do remakes of older movies/cartoons let them do a remake of M.A.S.K or a live action movie lol.

Are your chocolate starfish ready for Peter Dinklage's chunky dick snot?

But there's nothing wrong with the original!

He was a good actor before GoT.  Hardly surprising he continues to be one afterwards.

Yeah, I am not complaining about him at all.
It's not even a Troma film, but I guess if he draws a new audience who go back to see them, it's a good thing.

Having recently rewatched Videodrome, let's just say there are a lot of theme applicable to our current times.

Of course, if they come for Sgt. Kabukiman, there will be blood.

Well, not really.
I'll just complain about it on the internet.

Had there been enough time for The Walking Dead to be rebooted from season one with Dinklage as Rick.  Sure I know the series is still being produced but why wait until the patient is dead to Frankenstein them, this is 2020, anything can happen.

He's gonna show up at the end of the movie like Nick Fury, inviting Toxie to join the Tromavengers.

Yeah, Videodrome was a meta-movie about it's time.

Mind you, a lot of Queen West is still there, and Kensginton Market, so it could totally use the same buildings and neighbourhoods. There is also something to be said for what Videodrome "exposes" and all the new glass condo buildings that turn Toronto into a panopticon. We have enough weird culture and the paranoia here, I just don't know if people in other markets would recognize the psychodrama that goes on within 1000 meters of CAMH and the Spadina streetcar.

I've never seen the original.  Is it something I should expend effort to watch?

Not really, maybe have a copy lying around for the next time you're stupid drunk.

This version will dwarf the original!
I'll show myself out...

Correct, and have "The Class of Nuke Em High" as a chaser.

Now there's a horror movie that doesn't get enough love. For some reason it fell under the radar of most people.

Yes. It's stupid, low budget crap. And yet, it's kinda funny at times, even if it's laughing at how stupid it is. There are some pretty women, a lot of 80s nostalgia.
 
2020-12-01 12:02:44 PM

Toxie 2. I think. The "I ain't never cornholed me no blind biatch before" scene was her intro.

I'll just leave this nugget.

A movie so crap at every level that even peak Summer Glau couldn't motivate me to ever watch what turd again.
