EP 8: Remakes and Repackagings

8/12/2019
More
Are remakes and sequels inherently cynical and why do so many seem to take them personally when announced? More importantly, we look at "The Repackaging" which just might be a new form of Cynema. See my blog on "Ghostbusters 2016" and why this isn't so much of a film as it is a cynical piece of product. http://horrorfuel.com/2017/04/03/ghostbusters-answer-call/
