West calls Strangers

04.13.2005

Simon West, he who was responsible for unleashing the plague that was CON AIR on the world, has signed on to direct the remake of WHEN A STRANGER CALLS for Screen Gems. The original 1979 horror film starring Carol Kane was perhaps best known for originating the old "the calls are coming from inside the house!" bit. How that will hold up considering that once frightening concept is now pretty much a gag remains to be seen. In addition to burning my eyes with CON AIR, West can also be held accountable for somehow making Angelina Jolie dressed as Lara Croft in TOMB RAIDER unwatchable. Though in his defense, Jan De Bont performed a similar task with the sequel CRADLE OF LIFE. Screen Gems is the genre arm of Sony Pictures, which has THE CAVE, a pretty neat looking horror flick, coming this August (and netting an impressive 8.5 on the JoBlo popcorn meter).
