Hardy, who also appeared in the creepy 1972 film, insisted an Internet writing credit was removed--because he doesn't want fans of the original film to think he was in any way a part of the Neil LaBute remake.
And LaBute admits he didn't expect his new film to create such a negative fuss--as fans of the original hit the Internet to blast the very idea of the remake.
He says, "I understand how people are very territorial about what they like and I understand how the original actors and director can think, 'God, how can they touch us?'
"But it's not something that I want people to judge whether they like one better than the other."
