Welcome back to The Gingold Files, returning to this site after a summer/early-fall break. The section features my past articles and reviews for that are celebrating "anniversaries" this month, but have long been lost in cyberspace. This week, the focus is on a pair of movies by two of the greatest Spanish-language filmmakers: Guillermo del Toro's CRIMSON PEAK (with a review and interviews with del Toro and star Tom Hiddleston) and Pedro Almodóvar's THE SKIN I LIVE IN (with a review and an interview with star Antonio Banderas. On the other side of the coin, there are reviews of a bunch of Hollywood remakes, including CARRIE, THE THING, QUARANTINE (derived from [REC]) and THE STEPFATHER, plus an interview with scripter Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa on the TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN redux, and more!
