This episode will examine both the 1998 Japanese original and the 2002 American remake. We love them both. The original is a true horror masterwork and the 2002 version is that rarity among remakes: a great iteration on the original with some things it even improves on. We tend to think of these as two versions of the same film and because of the unique adherence of the remake to the shots, mood, and story of the original, we will be discussing both simultaneously. Where there are differences, we’ll discuss them.
