I doubt that I’m the only person who thinks that LD Entertainment’s Jacob’s Ladder remake is probably one of those “it’ll never be as good as the original, why bother”? films. But they’ve gone ahead and made it anyway, and it was intended to come out on February 1st. However, reports have now come in that the release is being delayed and may not come out till later in the year, something that I predicted as we have yet to see a trailer – though exactly how much later we don’t know yet. Could this be a bad sign? Possibly. I have the feeling that it’ll end up bypassing cinemas for a start, but we’ll see.
