Yes I saw the prequel and it was actually pretty good. Interesting way of explaining the first tentative steps toward Resurrection. I don't want to give too much away in case anyone hasn't seen it. As you can all probably tell, I'm a huge fan of the remake. I was too young to see the original in it's first airing, but in the midst of playing catch up with it now.
Anyway thanks for the welcomes and I'm looking forward to getting stuck in to the site.
