The Town That Dreaded Sundown

Although Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN remake has been out in the States for quite a while now, the film is still due to hit theaters over in the UK on April 17th. With its release just weeks away, UK distributor Metrodome had the amazingly talented poster artist Graham Humphreys cook up a limited edition print for the film, and it’s an absolute stunner. Check it out below along with some process photos!

The synopsis:

65 years after a masked serial killer terrorized the small town of Texarkana, the so-called “moonlight murders” begin again. Is it a copycat or something even more sinister? A lonely high school girl, with dark secrets of her own, may be the key to catching him.

THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN stars Addison Timlin, Gary Cole, Veronica Cartwright, Joshua Leonard, and Spencer Treat Clark.

SPOILERS BELOW THIS SPOILER WARNING WARNING










I like how in the original the Phantom Killer was never discovered, and the tension was surmountable
with some comic brevity by director Charles B. Pierce aka Spark plug. It had an air of mystery, really, it could have been anybody as the Phantom Killer.
The Remake ratchets up the tension and brutality and I even jumped out of my chair a few times, which, if it can accomplish that, makes a it a hit in the balls and warm fuzzy feelings about the movie. While the remake still has that air of mystery, there are only three things i didn't like about it. Call me a prude if you want, but the sexy
sex stuff is something the movie didn't need in order to be good. it didn't really add much to the story, though one particular scene I guess adds up, you'll see. I also didn't like the plot hole involving the Pastor played by the great Edward Herman sending that email to the leading lady, but yet nothing comes of it, no slap on the wrist, no jail time, nada, just a stern talking to, Then his character just disappears, probably because they wanted to create a red herring, but it just doesn't work. 3rd thing i didn't like, the reveal of the killer(s)?
I wanted to it to be kept a mystery like the original, but I guess it will have to do, and truth be told it didn't really hurt the movie that much in the scheme of things, but I wanted the ending to be ambiguous as to who the killer was. Despite my misgivings about the remake, I still give it a solid 9.5/10, whereas the original gets a solid 10/10.
