Old Sep 12th, 2009, 05:52 PM        Even more remakes...
This remake thing has really gone to far. Now remakes of classic horror are coming out with little or no fanfare at all. Which sort of defeats the reason companies put out remakes (to cash in on nostalgia and name value).

Of course, 'Sorority Row' just came out. A remake of 'The House on Sorority Row'.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this remake of 'It's Alive!' at a local horror con. Of course I had to pick it up just to see it. Have yet to watch it though.

Fright Night is being optioned for a remake by Dream Works.

Monster Squad has been optioned.

Hellraiser, Children of the Corn, Creature from The Black Lagoon, Shocker, The Gate....all in the works.

Then I hear there's another 'Blob' remake in the works.

And today, I discover that Plan 9 From Outer Space' is getting a 'more serious' remake.

Seriously, when is it going to stop? There are only a handful of remakes that were better than the original.

How many can you name?

They seem to be more prevalent for horror movies. "Scary" is a primal quality, easier to retell than some more complicated narrative.

BTW, Casino Royale is a horrible example of a remake.

The Gate? Man, that's really going out of someone's way to do a remake. I had no idea the movie had any sort of popularity for it to even be considered remade.

No fucking messes around with Stephen Dorff's first appearance in a full length motion film.

The original wasn't that much of a sham.....

Some of the remakes aren't bad. I really liked Friday The 13th and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remakes mainly because I don't expect them to compare to the old ones. I just wanted to see Jason/Leatherface/Kenny Loggins horribly rape and pillage stupid teenagers. I hope they stop with the Creature From The Black Lagoon remake, that's utter bullshit.

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Witches

Actually, I sort of agree with The Witches, seeing as they screwed up the ending pretty darned badly.

The Hellraiser remake is probably going to be tremendously shitty, but I would still totally want to see it.

I’ve heard Rob Zombie will not be directing any more Halloween movies, but is going to be directing The Blob’s 2nd remake.

Poltergeist and clash of titans (it may not be a horror, but it still scared the crap out of me as a kid.)

I also heard there will be a remake of robocop which I think is ridiculous. Even more so that it will be directed by darren aronofsky (requiem for a dream and pi)

What the fuck?

I could care less about most of these remakes, but Plan 9 and Rocky Horror?

You are kicking me in the balls, Hollywood.

I remember thinking that the TCM remake was the beginning of the end for modern horror

Preemptive: shutup, I know there are still good, NEW, horror movies. They're few and far between, though.

A serious remake of Plan 9 as a generic zombie movie.



They might just as well remake The Naked Gun as a serious Drama/Thriller with Liam Neesen.


Fuck Hollywood. Someday, I'm going to burn down their sign if they keep this remake shit up.
