The Invaders are coming to remake your movies and only we can defend the Earth from the dreaded film remake.

Invasion of the Remake goes back in time to our childhoods and revisits a Walt Disney classic, 101 Dalmatians! Cruella De Vil is obsessed with fur, she adores it, and there is nothing that will stop her from getting it. Unfortunately her latest obsession is with Roger and Anita's dalmatians, Pongo, Perdita and their puppies. 101 Dalmatians (1961) brings grand adventure and social themes together in an animated classic that still resonates over 50 years later. Today live action remakes of classic Walt Disney animated features has become the norm, but in 1996 it was a fresh new idea, and they did it with out the aid of CGI. This week it is classic animation versus the live action film starring Glenn Close, Jeff Daniels, Joely Richardon, Hugh Laurie, Mark Williams and Joan Plowright!

We're celebrating 100 episodes with the movie most ripe for a remake that it is insane to think that no one has done it yet. Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954) was a late comer to the Universal Monsters family, but the monsters visuals are iconic and imprinted in our minds. It is a science-fiction, horror classic. Why Hollywood hasn't remade it is anyone's guess. With it now on the Dark Universe film slate we thought we'd take our best shot at it before Universal does. So this week we trade our spaceship for a boat and rediscover the Creature From the Black Lagoon.

This week we enter the bowls of the asylum and enter the mind of psychotic serial killer Hannibal Lecter. Originally portrayed on screen by Brian Cox in Manhunter (1986), Hannibal would be later defined by the performance of Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs (1991), Hannibal (2001) and Red Dragon (2002). While both Manhunter and Red Dragon are adaptations of the Thomas Harris novel, Michael Mann's vision is very different than Brett Ratner's version and we'll explore that. Both films sport an all-star cast, Manhunter also stars William (CSI) Petersen, Kim Greist, Joan Allen, Dennis Farina, and Tom Noonan. Red Dragon is a who's who of Oscar nominated or winning actors and actress with the likes of Edward Norton, Ralph Fiennes, Harvey Keitel, Emily Watson, Mary-Louise Parker, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. It's the Hannibal Lecter battle this week on Invasion of the Remake. Won't you sit down and dine on Director with us?
