In Stanley Kubricks first true horror film, this remake of the horror classic, a group of young travelers -- including Erin (Lupita Nyong'o), Andy (River Phoenix), Morgan (Josh Borlin) and Pepper (Eva Green) -- comes across an isolated Texas town where unfortunate events begin to happen to them. While trying to find local authorities they come across a plantation style house. Unfortunately for them, the decrepit house is the residence of a family of deranged backwoods killers --Sheriff Hoyt (John Cazale), Luda Mae Hewitt (Kathy Bates) and Monty Hewitt (Bruce Dern) -- , most notably a hulking masked brute known as Leatherface (Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson), who begins to hunt the stranded youths down.

The film tells of two very different individuals who share a prison cell in South American : Valentin Arregui, who is imprisoned (and has been tortured) due to his activities on behalf of a leftist revolutionary group, and Luis Molina, a transgender woman in prison for "corrupting the youth".&nbsp; To pass the time Molina recalls the plots of her favorite B-movies. As the story progresses the audience learns that the interwoven stories resonate much more deeply than the simple escapism Valentin original dismisses them as. Touching on issues of identity, political theory and love. Not to mention projecting Molina's guilt over making a deal with the secret police to extract information from her sick cellmate.
The main film is shot by Ingmar Bergman. Cause nobody shots chamber dramas better.
Peter Sellers plays Molina.
Javiar Bardem plays Valentin
Isabelle Adjani: As the b-movie starlet Molina loves. Adjani will be the lead in all sequences, Valentin's girlfriend in flashbacks, AND, yes, the Spider Woman.

I watched the Lost Boys recently and I thought it was a great movie, but I thought there were a few aspects that could be expanded on from its 97-minute runtime. Specifically, I wanted larger roles for the adult characters, here played by Anthony Hopkins, Julie Andrews, and Denzel Washington, as well as for the non-David vampires, here played by James Dean and Megan Fox. There were also some interesting ideas (as I saw them) about the role of mothers and women in men's lives, toxic masculinity, and homosexuality, among others. The music was corny as shit, too, so I thought that could be improved. David Fincher has a strong visual style, as well as a dark sense of humor, so I think he would be good for the material, but he also has a reputation of being not awesome with his depiction of female characters, which I thought having Greta Gerwig writing would help rectify. This is made especially important because the main character and at least one vampire are gender-reversed and more attention would be paid to the mother, who is now one of the more important characters in the movie, rather than mostly background as before.
Julia Stiles is Michelle, a college student who just moved to Santa Carla (actual thing Santa Clara was renamed in the Lost Boys) with her mother and younger sister. Her life's been a little rocky lately, and she has some rebellious and self-destructive streaks, but if she's not careful she won't be getting better any time soon.
Anthony Hopkins is Barnard. In an expanded role, he is no longer the kids' grandfather, but instead the creepy next door neighbor who grows good pot and has way too many crosses in his house. Hopkins has that ability to project supernatural levels of intelligence and competence regarding his area of expertise. In this case, like Lestat in Bram Stoker's Dracula, his expertise lies in vampires.
Julie Andrews is Lucy, Michelle's mother, a former jazz/lounge singer trying to get away from her old life. Because who doesn't want Julie Andrews to be their mom, right? Anyway, she's singing in the damn movie over Thom Yorke's beautiful score. Just a scene or two.
Winona Ryder is Star, a local girl who shares a mutual fondness with Michelle. She's also pursued by David, who she doesn't like so much, but she has to put up with him cuz he's a fucking vampire. She's managed not to be turned, though, because she is clever and savvy enough to keep David at bay. Think of Ryder's roles in Reality Bites and Edward Scissorhands, with a touch more self-awareness.
Brad Pitt is David, the leader of Santa Carla's gang of young, hot vampires. Think of the Tyler Durden character in Fight Club and you're not too far off from this character's brand of toxic masculinity. Denzel Washington is Max, also expanded from the original. A local storeowner and, eventually, Lucy's boyfriend. He's nice, but pretty intimidating, as Denzel is so good at portraying.
James Dean is Marko, who's pretty easygoing as far as James Dean characters go. He is loyal to David, but is sometimes disturbed by his more violent tendencies.
Megan Fox is Hawisa. Hawisa loves David and has for centuries, though because he turned her, she had little say in the matter.
I decided not to recast either Corey. They are both great in the original, especially Feldman, who is note-perfect.
