Yeah the CGI was pretty strong for the most part (especially loved the shots of the faces splitting open), but it still didn't feel nearly as real as the '82 effects did.
I just finished watching the 82 version only a few minutes ago, and I really don't see how those effects are anything signficantly realer looking than modern CG. Some of them are decent, and some of them aren't. For the most part they look like what they are---makeup with particularly fake looking blood.
