In this corner, we have the original 1972 version.
And, in this corner, we have the 2009 remake version.
Thanks to Analog Medium for bringing this movie to my attention. They just reviewed the original 1972 version. So, if you want some cinematic insight on this seminal horror masterpiece, head on over to their site (just click their name already). Wes Craven directed the first one and he seems to be producing the remake. I guess he figured that if someone should profit from the pimping of his own past material, it should be him. Well played Wes Craven, well played.
