A few pop culture rabbit holes for your Wednesday
Great read, especially source books each of us identify with that helped shape our lives. Mine would be Peter Camenzind by H. Hesse.
Thank you so much for the shout out, Abigail! Glad you enjoyed the WHMS issue. I'd been looking for an excuse to write about Reiner for a while.
As for actors returning for the remake, this probably doesn't officially count, but I'll forever be fascinated by Evil Dead 2 (one of my all-time favorite movies), wherein Sam Raimi brought Bruce Campbell back to play the same character in a sequel that isn't really a sequel because it rewrites the original with a different tone and a different ending. I wonder if Campbell thought he was crazy for that.
Terrence Stamp, sort of, in Poor Cow and The Limey?
