…though not quite as good as the original.
I realized two things when listening to Marilyn Manson’s cover of Gerald McMann’s ‘Cry Little Sister’ from the 2010 Joel Schumacher horror/homosexuality allegory The Lost Boys namely Manson sings a lot better than I gave him credit for.
His voice holds up really well. That being said, the song is trying too hard to be haunting/scary, something the original pulled off more effortlessly.
The second is while the remake is by no means terrible, it’s does feel a bit pointless, since it feels different than the original in ways that seem to shout ‘I’m different!’ as opposed to having any valid reasons to actually be different.
