It seems that in recent years the press has made a big effort in not trying to glorify Charles Manson. People used to enjoy him acting crazy on talk shows, and Manson shirts were popular in the early nineties when interest in serial killers was at their peak, but you get the impression people don’t want to etch him any further into the history books.
Whenever a beloved classic is slated to be remade, the outrage from some fans can hit insane levels.
I definitely have mixed feelings about the upcoming remake of The Thing. Then again, a lot of people felt the same way when the film was first remade by John Carpenter in 1982.
