I didn't think that this version was much darker than the original 1969 version. The cabin scene was very much like the original save for LeBeouf not being there when Quincy does in Moon for spilling what he knows about Lucky Ned Pepper (In the new one Matt Damon's LeBeouf doesn't show up until right before Ned Pepper shows up while in the old one LeBeouf, Rooster, & Maddie are never separated once they start out. In both versions, new & old, Quincy chops off Moon's fingers and then thrusts his knife into Moon's torso before Rooster shoots Quincy dead. In both versions you see the fingers fly off of the table and plenty of blood.
I was pleasantly suprised on how the new version turned out. It was very close to the original but different enough to stand on its own merit!
