Consensus: Excessive and gory, this remake lacks the intellectual punch of the 1972 original.

The director, Dennis Iliadis, is exactly the right type of person to helm an upgrade of this manner: he is a genuine fan of the source.

In the end, like virtually every other remake that has been released recently, it's polished and predictable.

Mark Olsen
Los Angeles Times

A shockingly mundane disappointment taken on its own and a deeply misguided refraction of the original.

If you must, seek out the original to see nasty things happen to nasty people in a nasty film.
