Memorable Horror Remakes

In this week's Total Recall, we run down some of the most high-profile revivals of legendary frightfests.

Remakes

This weekend, Stephen King's breakthrough novel Carrie returns to theaters in the form of director Kimberly Peirce's remake, starring Chloe Grace Moretz as the title character and Julianne Moore as her violently religious mom. While it seems doubtful that the new-look Carrie will attain the classic status enjoyed by the 1976 original, this sort of thing is hardly without precedent; in fact, there have been so many horror remakes that there's no way we could cover them all at once. We did, however, decide to collect a sampling for this week's list, making room for some of the best, worst, and most puzzlingly misguided examples from the genre. Let's get started, shall we?

The Amityville Horror

23%

Like many of the movies on this week's list, the latter-day Amityville Horror was produced by Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes -- and like more than a few of them, it suffered in comparison to the original. Which is a shame, because Amityville's central story -- about a young family moving into a horrifically haunted house -- is both devilishly simple and allegedly fact-based, which has helped the franchise retain its aura even through a series of sometimes-silly sequels and spinoffs. Unfortunately, despite a talented cast that included Ryan Reynolds, Melissa George, and a young(er) Chloe Grace Moretz, this Horror was mainly scary for the studio execs who had to account for its $64 million domestic gross, which might be why we haven't seen another installment in theaters since.

Mode: HLS Link

The Blob

61%

Inspired by the way David Cronenberg used modern special effects and less-campy storytelling to amp up the horror in The Fly, Hollywood spent a portion of the late 1980s rushing to the vaults and searching for other long-dormant properties that might benefit from the remake treatment. Hence 1988's The Blob, in which an alien goo plops down in a small town and starts gorging on its unsuspecting residents. It was just as fantastically cheesy a premise as it had been in 1958, when Steve McQueen starred in the original -- but thanks to a solid screenplay from future Shawshank Redemption director/adapter Frank Darabont, as well as a (slightly) more believable Blob, it managed to just about reach the rather low bar set by its predecessor, which is about all one can hope for when making a film about hungry interstellar plasma.

Mode: HLS Link

Cat People

63%

The original Cat People, produced on the cheap by Val Lewton in 1942, emphasized suggestion over explicit horror; four decades later, director Paul Schrader used the movie's central idea -- about people whose sexual desires trigger a sometimes-deadly feline transformation -- as the basis for a steamy softcore flick that made up for its lack of genuine scares with an abundance of Natassja Kinski and a cool soundtrack featuring David Bowie and Giorgio Moroder. While it may not be the most terrifying movie on this week's list, it's probably one of the hardest to turn away from if you happen across it on the cable dial during a bout of late-night viewing.

Mode: HLS Link

The Crazies

71%

"WHY ARE THE GOOD PEOPLE DYING?" screamed the poster for George A. Romero's paranoid The Crazies about the side effects of a military accident that resulted in a small American town being poisoned with a biological weapon that turns people into violent lunatics. Sadly, the tagline for Romero's 1973 effort might as well have been "WHY WON'T MOST THEATERS SHOW THE CRAZIES?," because the picture died with a whimper at the box office -- but a good idea always turns up again in the horror genre, and in 2010, director Breck Eisner repurposed Romero's original to create a sleek, gleefully nasty update that managed a surprisingly robust 71 percent on the Tomatometer. Alas, while Eisner's Crazies at least made it to wide release, they didn't fare a whole lot better at the box office, managing to slash together ony $54 million worldwide. The result of a military-industrial conspiracy, perhaps?

Mode: HLS Link

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

58%

It might seem a little odd to base a horror remake on a TV movie from the 1970s, but the original Don't Be Afraid of the Dark -- starring Kim Darby as a housewife whose new home comes with some nasty little tenants lurking in the basement -- is a cult classic for afficionados of the genre, so a theatrical version was probably inevitable. Given that the 2011 edition was co-written and produced by Guillermo del Toro, fans had reason to be hopeful that the remade Dark would be even scarier than the first; alas, after being trapped in studio limbo for months due to Miramax's shuttering, director Troy Nixey's update on the story -- which focused on an eight-year-old (Bailee Madison) and her father's girlfriend (Katie Holmes) -- was greeted with lukewarm indifference by audiences and critics alike. Perhaps some things are just more frightening on the boob tube.

Mode: HLS Link

Evil Dead

62%

How in the world do you put together a remake of one of the most beloved horror-comedy cult classics of the last 40 years? If you're director Fede Alvarez, you film a new version of Evil Dead with production input from creator Sam Raimi and original star Bruce Campbell, a much bigger budget, and a far more serious take on the story of young campers who unwittingly unleash a demon plague while goofing around with the Book of the Dead. The amped-up gore in Alvarez's Evil Dead certainly wasn't for everyone, but it arguably made more sense, given the film's narrative outline -- and audiences responded strongly enough that plans for a sequel are currently afoot.

Mode: HLS Link

The Fly

91%

The original version of The Fly, released in 1958, was a Vincent Price classic that didn't really need to be remade, but that didn't stop producer Stuart Cornfield (working with an uncredited Mel Brooks) from getting the ball rolling on a new version. After several years in development, plenty of studio struggle, and some turnover at the screenwriter and director positions, Cornfield had his movie: David Cronenberg's gorier, more suspenseful take on The Fly, which went back to George Langelaan's 1957 short story and emerged with one of the more delightfully suspenseful horror/sci-fi movies of the 1980s. Unfortunately, Cronenberg's Fly -- starring Jeff Goldblum as the ill-fated scientist whose experiments leave his DNA accidentally intertwined with the titular pest, and Geena Davis as the woman who loves him -- was too successful to prevent a sequel: 1989's rather uninspired The Fly II. Rumors of another remake (and a quasi-sequel penned by Cronenberg) have popped up over the years, but it's all been for naught. So far, anyway.

Friday the 13th

25%

Featuring a "star" hidden behind a hockey mask and a brilliantly low-budget conceit that needed nothing more than anonymous young actors capable of screaming in various states of undress, the Friday the 13th series was one of the most reliably profitable horror franchises of the 1980s -- and ripe for the reboot treatment in the 21st century. Platinum Dunes did the honors in 2009, reimagining the murderous Jason Voorhees as more of a lethal maniac and less of a lumbering dolt, with cooler special effects and plenty of T&A; once again, the formula worked, producing plenty of pure profit for the studio and signaling that perhaps a new slew of sequels was on the horizon. Alas, Jason has slumbered since then, although recent rumors suggest we could see a (sigh) found-footage Friday before too long.

You guys forgot the Thing. No, not the 2012 version. The 1970s. I also don't get why some of these are "memorable" if nearly all of them sucked.

Ahem! It's virtually the same plot. They try to say that it isn't a remake by saying it's a prequel.

Actually, it leads into the beginning of the 1982 (because you got the date wrong) film starring Kurt Russel. And John Carpenter's "The Thing" is actually a remake of the 1951 film "The Thing from Another Planet". It's actually the film that Tommy Doyle and Linsay Wallace are watching in John Carpenter's "Halloween". And you people call yourselves Horror movie fans?

I didn't like the drug addiction angle. I thought it made the characters more whiney and harder to like. Plus where the first Evil Dead's characters look like you average Joes, we're once again treated to a remake filled with overly attractive, annoying characters. Plus I preferred the tape recording in the first one, the remake featured on of the stupidest characters ever. Seriously, how many times do you need to be warned before you stop reading?

8 Luke Goss's version of Frankenstein

12 The Wolfman(the extended cut grew on me and I'm a sucker for werewolves.)

It isn't really "shot-for-shot" because Van Sant doesn't have a clue how to compose a shot like Hitchcock. It's a poor karaoke attempt at shot-for-shot that lacks any of the tension and skill of the original.

I can't believe you included the remake of Nightmare on Elm Street on there! That movie was an abomination, even by bad remake standards. All prints of that movie should be burned. Piranha 3d was just 45 minutes of boobs and then ridiculous gore. I never thought anything could make me tired of seeing boobs until that movie. I didn't mind the remake of Halloween, although the second one was crap, My Bloody Valentine was good, but the mine massacre was stupid. The remake of Fright Night was actually good, but the evil Ed character was not as good as the original.

Guys, I'm starting to get the feeling that most horror remakes are cynical ploys to market to teenage psycho-sexual anxieties.

Notice how there aren't any Hammer films on here? That's because they knew how to properly reboot classic characters imaginatively.

Janson Jinnistan

Well, ALL horror films work off of psycho-sexual fantasies. What I meant is that the formula is more obvious (hence "cynical") about it now. Like the 3D Texas Chainsaw film. Its entire BO was from opening weekend teenagers. Even the worst exploitative horror films of the 80s had better legs than that.

I'm only expressing during the time it was released which was back in 1999, which some had said that it was a remake from "House From Haunted Hill"! But at the same time, I've just read that "House From Haunted Hill" is also a remake from Robert Wise's "The Haunting"! Go figure!

Oct 17 - 05:18 PM

Janson Jinnistan

House on Haunted Hill was released in 1959, 4 years before The Haunting. What you're thinking is that The Haunting was an adaptation of the book The Haunting of Hill House, which has no relation to House on Haunted Hill other than the words in the title. (Of course, if you've seen either film, you would know they bear no resemblence to each other.)
