Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

I really liked The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with Jessica Biel.
Do I like it better than the original? Maybe. I'd have to watch them again to refresh my memory.
I did enjoy Rob Zombie's Halloween. If that's considered a remake.
Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th remake....meh, not so much.
That's all I can think of right now tongue

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

Ooo just been reminded about Mother's Day. That was such a mean spirited thrill ride. Was one of the best horrors I seen last year!

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

Definitely the Halloween remake. The Hills Have Eyes is a close second.

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

I'll just go with current remakes that I liked better than the originals since certain others (The Thing '82, The Fly, and Invasion...etc) are already established as awesome and classic:

Dawn of the Dead
Hills Have Eyes
The Ring
The Grudge

Honourable mention goes to Let Me In since it very nearly matched Let the Right One In, and Night of the Living Dead '90 for the same reason.

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

I hated Let Me In. Moretz couldn't match the amazing performance Lina Leandersson gave in the original. But hey, to each his own. smile

Well I wasn't expecting it to be as good, or good at all for that matter, so I guess that helped. Let the Right One In is undoubtedly the superior film, though.

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

I felt that Moretz was the shining light for me. I was entralled by her performance. I didn't like the kid who played Owen.

TCM redux holds a special place in my heart since at the time when I was really getting into horror films, that was the most hardcore film I saw at that time.

The Hills Have Eyes
Halloween
Black Christmas
The Fly
The Thing
House on Haunted Hill
My Bloody Valentine
Amityville Horror
Last House On The Left
The Grudge
Thirteen Ghosts
Quarantine
Prom Night
The Stepfather

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

@DudeoftheDead-  Excellent avatar.  "Thrill me."

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

Not in any order:

- Evil Dead
- The Thing
- My Bloody Valentine 3D
- Rob Zombie's Halloween 1& 2 ( I know I like 2, don't sue me big_smile )
- The Hills Have Eyes
- Night of the Living Dead

Runner up: *Friday the 13th* , even though I hate Platinum Dunes it's still a pretty fun film and better then some of the later entries in the series in my opinion.

As for remakes here are mine and I like them much more than the originals:
1- I Spit On Your Grave
2- The Hills Have Eyes
3- The Amityville Horror
4- Piranha

But Evil Dead is DEFINITELY be on top of my list in 5 days. big_smile

Well like I said a while back, EVIL DEAD is definitely the best one. Even better than my dear I Spit On Your Grave. And I forgot to mention The Ring which to me is FAR BETTER than Ringu even if I love Ringu, Samara is more creepy than Sadako in my humble opinion.

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

The Thing (1982) is my favorite remake, even though it's more of a re-adaptation of the short story.

The Fly (1986) is probably my second favorite when it comes to remakes. I love the original Fly, don't get me wrong, but this just blows it out of the water.

Two honorable mentions are The Ring (2002), but I like the original a lot more so I can't really say it's my favorite, and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), with that I like the original just a little bit more, so I can't say it's one of the best.

Evil Dead (2013) was merely okay, not the worst but not the best, and is pretty forgettable when compared to the original trilogy.

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

Night of the Living Dead (1990) and it's probably blasphemy saying this, but I actually prefer it over the original lol

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

I Spit On Your Grave, Halloween, The Ring, Carrie.


Sue me.

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

John Carpenter's The Thing

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

THE THING and HILLS HAVE EYES, even though neither had much to do with the originals.  The first, though, had more to do with the literary story than the first.

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

Hard to say but if you're putting a gun to my head the omen.

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

Let's stay on the suject.  I've noticed that some choices were theatrical  movies rather than TV shows?

Not  real remake, but some people say it a remake of THEM!

Re: Your Favorite Horror Remake?!?!

THEM!, the giant ant movie from the 50s?  Or "Them," as in the English translation of the French horror flick "Ils"?

lol
