1. For the love of god, leave Michael Bay out of it.
The blockbuster director and his Platinum Dunes shingle don't appear to be involved in this new incarnation, and thank goodness for that. Since releasing their glossy remake of "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" in 2003, the company has churned out some of the most uninspired horror retreads (and originals) in recent memory, from the truly heinous "Friday the 13th" remake (they're also behind a second "F13" reboot slated for 2016) to last year's critically-lambasted board game adaptation "Ouija." What's clear is that Bay and his associates are far more interested in appealing to the widest possible audience than pleasing hardcore genre fans, and it shows in the vacuous horror flicks they've been putting out for over a decade. Let's hope their non-involvement remains a thing.
