This one looks mega-creepy.

It should be creepy. I've always thought Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had an incredibly dark side to it, and I also always thought it was a bit odd that it was viewed as a children's movie.
I think this is going to be good, but I think there are going to be a lot of people who liked the original who won't like the new version.
