Still from Straw Dogs
This actually looks pretty terrifying! Sony Pictures is set to release a Remake of the 1971 Film Straw Dogs starring Dustin Hoffman originally. The Story based on the Novel The Siege of Trencher's Farm, is about a Couple, Amy (Kate Bosworth) and David (James Marsden) who relocate down south where soon they find that tensions amount as they clash with some Locals including Charlie (Alexander Skarsgård). Rod Lurie who directed one of my favourite Films of 2008, Nothing but the Truth starring Kate Beckinsale, produces, writes and directs this one.

I really am a Fan of the Horror flick The Strangers, also from 2008, starring Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman where a Couple are held captive in their homes and terrorized and see some similarities here in themes and mood, although the violence looks amplified here.

Sony Pictures releases Straw Dogs on September 16, 2011.
