In 1963, Francis Ford Coppola made his breakthrough in mainstream cinema thanks to the "Madness 13" — low cost and, let's face it, low-grade Gothic horror movie, filmed under the patronage of Roger Corman. "Madness 13" Coppola was created on the wave of popularity of "Psycho", was quickly all is forgotten, however, as other psychoanalytic and existential horror of the 60s, received a cult status, and is in the public domain and has earned numerous reprints. A remake of "Madness 13", released in 2017, corresponds only to the template of the original. In many ways, the name chosen here only for PR-sounding name, and the film itself is not out a status frame "garbage of the genre."

The plot in many copies of the original installation. The girl Louise was married to the representative of a fabulously wealthy family of Colornow. Husband in a short time dies. Louise, in the purpose of inheritance, "Comedy breaks" in front of family and pretends nothing happened with her husband everything in order. The situation becomes more uncomfortable, especially when the mansion there is a killer armed with an ax.

According to all the creators of the remake chose to add in your creation what Coppola avoided, contrary to the requirements of his mentor Roger Corman. It is, of course, about the unnecessary violence. Play with genres in this situation and analysis of various violence (e.g. physical or psychological violence) might play in hand to hide from the viewer the identity of the killer. Here are all too quickly slipping into the slasher, the script then starts to follow all the traditions of the film in the genre of "home invasion". In some moment in this disgusting cocktail is added and dolls, just like in the eponymous work of Stuart Gordon, 1986. A large number of ingredients, not the film went on advantage. On the contrary, such a strong desire to make his film memorable completely deprived of its originality.

The "Madness 13" came a horror, completely devoid of a sense of horror. Moreover, I would say the murder the plot is not even move! The audience here does not scare at all. The actors are not play, blood flows like ketchup down, and decorations made with using the meager budget, look sterile and boring. Each scene, it also, removed somehow inactive.

The verdict disappointing. "Madness 13" 2017 — senseless, some ethereal, and finally too soft a remake, although the initial plot details seems a worthy successor of the original 50-year-old. The manner of shooting, terrible acting, atmosphere, trash and, in the end, purely commercial goal to remove low-quality horror format VOD, make "Madness 13" to lose its appeal. Apart from a few scenes with nudity, "Madness 13", on my opinion, contains a nothing interesting.
