I didn't realize they did a remake in 2012! I don't like this one as well as the original. I'm going to rent the original. This is kind of interesting tho. People have thought that the story is fictional, but it actually happened. It was a creation from the experiments done at Montauk. I spoke of this before. They were experimenting with invisibility -- thinking that they'd only make a ship APPEAR invisible to enemy detection.
Turned out the experiment went into time travel & actual invisibility. They didn't have enough information, and didn't prepare the guys enough. No one should have had any metals on them. THis included zippers, pocket change, rivets. That created problems. Some were found actually melted into the metal walls of the ship.
