We have a ton of top horror movies lists & compilations and I know that you all enjoy reading them because of how popular they are. People love to agree with the lists, disagree with them and openly debate them on site and on our facebook page and frankly I love it. Whenever we do a top list I expect nothing less than for the community to discuss it. This go around we have another Top 10 List which I am calling ‘You Decided’. Moving forward we are going to be doing alot more editorials featuring the viewpoints of you the community and these are the best horror film top 10’s because they are not based on the views of one well versed horror fantatic but off of the thousands of horror fans who rate horror films on our site.
About a week and a half ago I asked you all to rate the horror remakes you have seen. This was not a matter of voting films up or down it was a cut dry rank every remake you have seen out of 10. The end result is this list which is the Top 10 Horror Movie Remakes based entirely off the votes of you the fans. Frankly I completely agree with the list but how can I argue considering 24,252 people have voted so far. Agree with this list, disagree with it you can’t argue with the fans!
#10) The Ring: Directed by the incredibly talend Gore Verbinski and starring Naomi Watts and Martin Henderson. The film made over $240million and is one of the highest grossing remakes of all time. The Ring lands at #10 on the list of Top Horror Remakes! The ring is an incredibly creepy film about a videotape that leads to a phone call and ends with the death of the recipient of the call. A truly creepy affair and well deserving of landing in the Top 10.
#9) The Last House on the Left (2009): Much like the original this remake is as brutal as it comes. When a film gets an R rating due to ‘sadistic and brutal violence including rape’ you know its not going to be an easy ride. This remake of Wes Cravens horror classic is as brutal as the original and what draws you in and makes you wade through the incredible brutal violence is for the revenge you know is coming on the perpetrators. This film was incredibly brutal and in the same token rewarding as the assailants go from terrifying villains to terrified victims. For me the standout performance was Martha MacIsaac who is best known for her work in Superbad and proved she is an incredibly talented actress with alot of potential.
#8) The Blob: Landing at #8 is The Blob a remake of the 1958 horror-scifi film about a government germ warfare project which goes horribly wrong and ends up consuming all things in its path. A group of teenagers go head to head with this menacing mindless blob. I have always had a warm spot for scifi-horror and this one is one of my all time favourites. I have never seen the original 1958 film but will mark it on my bucket list as something to make happen.
#7) Let Me In: Matt Reeves is best known for directing Cloverfield but with Let Me in he wanted to really show he is more than a one trick pony and could stand on his own. With Cloverfield JJ Abrams got most of the hype and credit but with Let Me In Matt Reeves proved he is a serious up and coming talent. A remake of the Swedish vampire film Let The Right One In it tells the story of teen-love with a very dark vampiric angle. This remake is true to the orginal while introducing many new elements making it a very deserving film to be on any Top Horror Remakes List.
#6) Bram Stokers Dracula: Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula which was released in 1992 to this day is still one of my favourite horror films of all time. It starred Gary Oldman, Anthony Hopkins the drop dead gorgeous Winona Ryder and the often wooden but still talented Keanu Reeves. Easily one of the best modern telling of the Dracula story Bram Stokers Dracula is a must see for any and all fans of vampire tales. Assuming anyone hasn’t seen this piece of cinemantic masterpiece.
