  1. I noticed that they’re showing the remake on AMC. If Syfy is not showing the original, that sucks! I like the remake, but the original is always better! If I could find the movie to buy on DVD, I would. It’s too bad that I don’t buy movies online because I think it’s too complicated. At the very least, the movie wouldn’t be so hard to find!
