Our RoboCop Remake is a crowd-sourced film project based on the 1987 Paul Verhoeven classic. Organized through Channel 101 and a bunch of other places, we're 50 filmmakers (amateur and professional) from Los Angeles and New York who have split the original RoboCop up into individual pieces and have remade the movie ourselves. Not necessarily a shot-for-shot remake, but a scene-for-scene retelling. As big fans of the original RoboCop, and as filmmakers and film fans admittedly rolling our eyes at the Hollywood remake machine, we've elected to do this remake thing our own way.

A married couple travel to a remote island looking for a relaxing, peaceful vacation but find something else much more horrifying once they arrive: all the kids on the island have murdered all the adults and are now on the hunt for more blood. The film has a pretty good atmosphere and a fantastic, thick tension (you can really feel it, a great slow burn film), it's also pretty damn scary. It's got the most fucked up death I've seen and the final fight scene is glorious. A great, fantastic horror film that's got a unique, disturbing concept (and a stupid last final seconds). Highly recommended.

Not scary in the least. If anything this may be the most boring horror movie I've seen in sometime....I'd skip it ....

Bryan W (ru) wrote: One of the truly great things about early science fiction films is that there was no lack of creativity and curiosity when it came to the science. Some films may seem laughable by today's standards, but just as many have incorporated timeless elements that make them enjoyable no matter what. This is one such a film.Considering the premise, it's not hard to imagine what happens; an astronaut goes into space and comes back a frightening monster. The film is unpretentious in this ambition; clearly, no one cared that they couldn't show the extreme violence the creature would be capable of, they don't stretch the runtime to include a romantic subplot, and they include the always-welcome cautionary message about striving for discovery without diligence.Most of the acting is passable, and even if the creature is fairly basic, he still manages to look ghastly, an impressive feat for a movie made over 60 years ago. Spare me the criticisms about the accuracy of the science writing; it's called science FICTION for a reason.

The amount of fire, gun shots, auto stunts, and right leg-only kicks in this movie are through the roof!! The set up, story, and character development are all just enough to keep the movie going without ever letting it get boring. One of the big lines is, "Tell me about the name chance." "Well, my mamma took one." I always wondered what exactly what that meant, but I assume it's either she took a chance and didn't get an abortion, or that she took a chance and slept with some random dude...maybe both. Either way, I thank her for taking that chance. This is one of those rare action movies that could have easily starred Brian Bosworth, but got away with the snub.
