Why would they do this? AGAIN? Look, the first movie (er, miniseries) screwed me up. I had nightmares for weeks. It was scarier than the book for several reasons: 1) seeing an evil clown is always worse than just reading about it; 2) TIM CURRY. He is like, the scariest man ever. He manged to be frightening in Home Alone 2! Come on!
So why would they want to improve perfection and also subject a new generation to the horror? Oh, right. The money.
Sorry, you could not PAY me to see this movie.
