Eddie Furlong made a big impression on horror fans when he played an overweight vigilante in The Crow: Wicked Prayer. Now he looks to make a sizeable difference in the Night of the Demons remake.

So far, the casting news for the highly anticipated remake has been dominated by females while leaving fans of the original wondering who, if anyone, is going to be supplying that brand of male chauvinism wrapped in a fake pig snout that made Night of the Demons so awesome. And sure, nobody knows if Adam Gierasch’s remake will have any characters that hold a candle to Night of the Demons’ memorable teenagers like that puffy dude in the pig snout. But if anyone can pull off puffy, it is the current incarnation of Edward Furlong.

According to Shock Till You Drop, principal photography began today in New Orleans. The film also stars Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie), Monica Keena (Freddy vs. Jason), and Diora Baird.
