Top 10 Horror Movie Remakes

Today, I would include IT (2017).
The Thing and The Grudge are my favourites, so glad they made it to your list.
evil dead 2013 should be on this list
Okay, my comment will not ever be noticed by you but it does not hurt to try. Can you please do a movie review of The Thing (1951) and The Thing (1982). I would want nothing more than for you to do this as a video
Run out of ideas your so right there
Glad to see the Blob get some cred – underappreciated and very entertaining!My personal taste; did not like any "dead" sequels, but liked remake of D o t D.Body Snatchers could use an honorable mention.
Time to watch (Goldbloom) The Fly again. I can't remember the last time i saw it.
the grudge is one of like 5 movies that actually still scare me if i watch it alone at night…I find the stairway scene super stressful
It 2017 would be number one now
I'm surprised not to see Werner Herzog's 1979 remake of "Nosferatu" on here.
I am glad James shares my opinion, that it is a shame that japanese horror films get remade with american actors, just to make the americans watch it. What? I am european, should I adopt the same mentality and only wanna watch horror films made by europeans? I could never watch another hollywood movie again.
You may want to update your list because the evildead remake was fucking awesome. as was 2010's Silent house. just watch it .
Where's Nosferatu (1979)?
Personally I love a variety of horror movies and there have been remakes I felt were better than the original, the thing being my favorite.
But, as I got older I stopped being interested in gore films. Having seen the real thing I don't care for it. So Im more into psychological thrillers and supernatural films. In my opinion nothing is scarier than the psychological horror in japanese films. The american remakes are okay for the most part, premonition was a disgrace as the japanese one was amazingly good, I find that they aren't as effective in terror. Ju-on was downright chilling, the effects could chill your blood and the ambiance was deeply disturbing. Something the remake lost utterly. Same for the ring. They arent bad, I still like them, but the originals were far better.
I miss those all good films,so much crap these days.James you're my savoir.Keep it up mate.
The best part of the Texas Chainsaw remake is Jessica Biel's jugs getting wet in that white tank top.
I find anyone who hates Kurt Russell to be of low quality character. Lol
"Who Goes There?" is a fucking great story; I reread it every few years. As such, The Thing demolishes The Thing From Another World for me, though some things still make me laugh in the latter (like how it doesn't even bother trying to explain why a research station in the Antarctic would be armed to the teeth with flamethrowers). Still, that's gotta be one of the best horror remakes.
With The Fly, the original was pretty clearly the better movie and is the one to see, but the remake had better body horror and (obviously) better special effects.
The Thing my favorite horror film of all times.
Bang HAMMER ??
You lost me at Rob Zombies Halloween
I still think the thing should be nr 1
Hi James, if you were to re release this list, would Stephen Kings IT (2017) be on the list and if so where about in the list? Would love to know
Hammer my balls, baby!
Pathetic hollywood has no creative talent anymore so they endlessly ruin every classic ever made! Texas Chainsaw and halloween and fly worse remakes ever
Thanks for the update in the description, I was curious
the thing and the blob are both inspired by at the mountains of madness. we did not get a movie because the studio tought it was too similar to prometeus.fuck you riddley scot your movies are shit and blade runner is overated!
