Totally forgot about this part…another failure on the remake’s part. Probably one of the most important scenes in the original feels like a throwaway scene here in the remake. The pure terror on that little kids face is the embodiment of the original. All of that thrown out the window and replaced with some 2min scene with some douche bag teen that felt awkwardly out of place.
Why bother “re-doing” these important scenes from the original and completely half ass it? Don’t do them at all then.
