Eli Roth's Plan for "Funhouse" Remake

Posted: June 10th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Eli RothSubmit Comment
It seems like anytime director Eli Roth is asked about what project he is working on, he replies with about twenty new films that he has planned. The man hasn't made a feature film since "Hostel: Part II."

In an interview with Fangoria, Roth mentioned that he is looking to remake Tobe Hooper's 1981 horror film "The Funhouse," which is about four teenage friends spending the night in a carnival funhouse, only to end up being stalked by a deformed man in a Frankenstein mask.

"I'm talking with Universal about that one," Roth revealed. "'The Funhouse' is a movie where the first half is brilliant they set up these great characters and then they pay off none of them. You have Marco the Magician sawing his daughter in half, the brothers who run the carnival and the funhouse setting. And then it's all about this weird mutant thing. It should be about the kids getting killed in horrible ways, put in different contraptions in the funhouse and the final girl being strapped into the ride and sent into the tunnels to be confronted by terrifying tableaux of her dead friends."

He added: "A smart remake could be so much fun. Kill the kids in fabulous ways and continually reuse the bodies by making them freaks in the freak museum, sew their eyes shut, waxworks... That's the stuff I want to do in a remake of 'The Funhouse.'"

Of all classic horror films i believe this really needed a remake. the original did kinda disapoint. I i have hope tht Eli Roth can at least make this a fun movie based on his comment.
