Funny Games is the American remake of the 1997 Austrian horror film of the same name. It's the story of a family who settles into their vacation cabin for a quiet getaway, without knowing it would be the next stop for a pair of young, articulate, white-gloved serial killers on an excursion through the neighborhood. Original writer/director Michael Haneke (Cache and La Pianiste) wrote and directed, and English-Australian actress Naomi Watts plays role of Anne, originally played by Susanne Lothar, and Tim Roth plays George. Devon Gearhart plays the role of their son, Georgie. The two malevolent young men are played by Brady Corbet and Michael Pitt. The film premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. It was released in the United States and Canada on March 14, 2008, by Warner Independent. The film is an exact shot-for-shot remake of its predecessor.
