I definitely agree the miniseries/TV movie doesn't hold up. But I liked the hell out of the new movie! Even though I didn't find it scary, it was everything else, along with the cinematography and the creepy visuals, that won me over. The characters and the humor were the standouts.
It's dated, but I also figured the new film would be fucked by the current Hollywood shit trends of horror that will make it forgettable in time.
