While some people are totally against remakes of classic or "perfect" horror movies, I actually like remakes. It brings the films to a new generation of fans and could actually get them interested in seeing the original films. And it is not like when a remake is made, the original is gotten rid of. We will always have the originals, so I say bring on the remakes. We love these stories and characters, so anytime I can see more of them, then so be it!!

What do you think about the remake craze in Hollywood right now??

  1. I have a big problem with Hollywood's remake kick of recent years. Aside from a very few exceptions (The Last House On The Left, Friday the 13th, The Hills Have Eyes) I think that most remakes are pointless. Some more than others, of course. I'd honestly love to punch Rob Zombie in the throat for what he did to Halloween. That's a goofy list, too. Rocky Horror??? What? Why remake Rocky Horror?? And Lady Vengeance? That's just blasphemy if Hollywood gets their evil mitts on that. Oh well, I guess it's going to happen regardless so me complaining won't do too much good! Keep up the great work, Hayes!

  2. Thanks Murphy! I think you are right, not much we can do about it...but as long as we still have the originals, they can make all the crappy remakes they want. We know which versions we will be watching though!

  4. I'm usually disappointed with movie remakes, but I still want to get my hands on every single one of them :-) I suppose it's curiosity. If I like the original, I'm really curious to see what they'll do with the remake.
    Looking forward to many movies from this list, to name a few: The Brood, Fright Night, Who Can Kill A Child, The Howling, Pet Sematary, The Birds, etc.
