The ‘Straw Dogs’ Ramake Has a Creepy Trailer

Sam Peckinpah‘s Straw Dogs is a movie that has stayed with me in a very unsettling way.  I saw it years ago and still can’t look at Dustin Hoffman the same way.  His performance was noteworthy for many reasons, but simply put it’s one of the best I’ve ever seen.  Rod Lurie‘s remake has a trailer which puts a screenwriter (James Marsden) and his wife (Kate Bosworth) in the deep South, her hometown.

Like the original, they encounter locals who are not so kind, and have to protect their house and each other from sure misery.  The film also stars Alexander Skarsgard; Straw Dogs opens September 16th.
