I caught this about 15 years or so ago, and it really is a well made remake. Barbara is less shell shocked and more of an asset to the group, and Tony Todd...c'mon. What can I say about the guy? He's brilliant. He plays Ben pretty in step with the original, and it works. The interesting twist is
Barbara survives this time through, and shoots Cooper who also survived (mimicking the accidental shooting of Ben in the original), and Ben ends up a zombie.
