Its quite gritty actually & has that feel-good ending. The 80's music and setting was a refreshing change. Worth a watch for sure. Juilette Lewis is great!!

It sports the hallmarks of a great movie OVA such as clever writing, interesting new characters, fluid animation and an emphasis on storytelling. The latter is done so in a way that perhaps overly padded, as anime in general has a knack for always trying to engage the viewer's emotional, existential thoughts, but it's a fun romp for anyone who loves Cowboy Bebop and wants a bit more after the end of the original run. Also, there's Ein, and you can never have too much of Ein.

Even if you look past getting a Frenchman to play a Scot and Scot to play an Egyptian/Spaniard (neither of whom making much effort to conceal their natural accents), this is a two star film which only earns it's third via Clancy Brown's performance as The Kurgan. If i were a film-maker asked to remake this "classic", I'd say "Sure. As long as I get to make it about The Kurgan." He's the only interesting character here.
Everett W (us) wrote: An inventive interesting cool way of doing a reboot / sequel to the 1976 film. Unlike the 1976 film this is not based on true events but does reference the 1946 killings as part of the films narrative. Taking some real concepts such as the annual showing of the town that dreaded sundown at Halloween and weaving this into a new tale makes for a thrilling concept. The clips from the original film are a lovely nod to it and it is all going well up until the midway point when it dips into familiar territory. A surprise scream style twist ending which further takes away from the originality stops this from being the true classic it could have been. Make no mistake though this is more of a true slasher / horror movie than the original was and is brutal in its delivery. There are not many modern day slasher films that reach the lofty heights of the 70's or 80's heyday of the genre, Scream was one that nailed it in the 90's and this is not far behind that a great effort despite its flaws.
