Ep.153 Remaking The Man Who Fell to Eath (1976)

This week Invasion of the Remake celebrates three years of podcasting glory with David Bowie starring in his first lead roll in a feature film, The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976). Director Nicolas Roeg brings his idiosyncratic style and vision to this very unique science fiction film. A film that relies more on implied ideas than plot and special effects. The results make for a surreal, disjointed, introspective experience that most likely would never had been made today. What would that look...

Ep.146 The Vanishing (1988 Vs. 1993)

Your loved one pops into the local gas station for some cold drinks. Time passes and they don't return. Panic falls upon you as you frantically search. Years pass and that search for answers has not ceased. The Vanishing is about loss, obsession, and the banality of evil. The original 1988 Dutch/French, suspense, thriller by director George Sluizer was remade in English for American audiences in 1993 by the very same director with very different results.
