In a nod to the original movies, Eisenmann plays a sheriff and Richards plays a waitress at a roadhouse called Ray's in a town called Stony Creek. They help a cabbie ([Dwayne "the Rock"] Johnson) and his two paranormal-powered passengers (AnnaSophia Robb and Alexander Ludwig).
So, why follow this film on this blog? I must confess, my greatest interest stems from the fact that it's one of my favorite films from childhood. And while I have some misgivings about the way it is being "re-envisioned," I'm holding out hope that it will also tell a great story--and maybe bring God-talk into open spaces in the process. For more on the film from this blog, go here, here, here, here or here.
