I wil go see the movie. It may suck like a Russian hooker crossed with a tornado, but I’m going to see it.
Like Half Man Half Wit, I don’t think the “supernatural” elements are going to be present, but they are elements of Max’s (drug-affected fevered?) imagination, or the symbolic representation of the nightmare he finds himself in.
[spoiler]There are definite refences to Valykie in the trailer, so Valkyr may still be the drug. The Valkyr shown are horrible monsters stalking people’s last moments instead of noble maidens carting off the dead, but I like the symbolism. V, of course, being the horrible drug which destroys so many lives.
I think they did deliberately change a lot because so many aspects of the just don’t make sense or wouldn’t fit into a movie story, and of course you can hardly fit that entire bloody story, with adequate characterization, into a 90 minute flick.
