I’m as guilty as anyone of encouraging Hollywood studios by going to see terrible remakes of classic horror movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Last House on the Left, Friday the 13th, and Halloween (which was a little better than the others thanks to Rob Zombie but still pretty much sucked).
But now they’ve just gone too far! Take a look at some of the horror movies that are set to be remade in the near future, according to about.com. (P.S. On an unrelated note, I’m really excited about Jeepers Creepers 3: The Creeper Walks Among Us).
I still haven’t seen the original, but I’ve heard it’s good.
Creature from the Black Lagoon
I didn’t really care about the original, but I know a lot of people who are probably really pissed about this.
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Without the original Freddy, what the hell is the point?
Now, this is just heresy.
Maybe this isn’t related to Predator, but I’m already worried.
Silent Night, Deadly Night
Never saw the campy original, but I’ll bet it’s awesome.
I am not okay with this.
The Wolf Man
Also of note, movie sequels that should give up already: Scream 4, The Ring 3, Resident Evil: Afterlife, 28 Months Later, Halloween 3D, and (of course) Saw VI.
