see no evil 1971

Now the 1971 suspenser See No Evil, also known as Blind Terror, is one film I haven’t seen [though I’ve seen the two so-so, unrelated See No Evil efforts from 2006 and 2014 starring wrestler Kane], but it has a decent reputation. The Mia Farrow-starrer, which sounds rather like the 1967 Wait Until Dark starring Audrey Hepburn, was directed by Richard Fleischer and is about a blind woman who goes to her uncle’s home, only to discover that her family has been murdered. She must then escape the maniac responsible for the killings. It’s a great premise for a seriously tense and even scary movie, and it’s now getting remade. It’s being developed by Screen Gems and Unbroken Pictures, being produced by Bryan Bertino [who is currently also busy writing the screenplay for The Strangers 2] and Adrienne Biddle, with a script by Mike Scannell. No news on a director yet.

Now this is making me want to seek out the original, but I’m wondering if I’ll enjoy the remake more if I don’t bother. Decisions decisions….

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
