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?
