Honestly I prefer the remake a lot more. It was much better paced, and for the most part used its time more interestingly. Also I just prefer colour okay? I'll give this one thing though, it doesn't waste time trying to build up a creepy friendship between Nancy and Cady, which it then does nothing with.
Either way the film still has the great villain and plot that I loved from the remake, I just don't think it did it as well.
I probably would have given it an extra half star, but the final act was such a bore with too many long shots of nothing but bushes. I'm sure it's supposed to be for tension, but it just doesn't work for me. Cady as a villain is 100% more interesting when he's talking and interacting with people, not verrrrry slowly crawling through bushes toward a group of people who are expecting him.
