Horror Movie Remakes Better Than the Original


The Top Ten

1 The Thing 1982

You have the best horror director making the remake it is bound to be better than the original and it delivers - germshep24

2 Stephen King's It 2018

I remember when everyone at school talked about it - darthvadern

A lot more true to the book and well made - germshep24

3 Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1978

Another movie where improved technology can improve a movie - germshep24

4 The Fly 1986

This is what happens when you have props to work with you get a movie that is far more entertaining than the original - germshep24

5 Last House on the Left 2009

Original is perhaps Wes's worst directed movie, this movie was produced by Wes and improved upon the original - germshep24

6 I Spit on Your Grave 2010
7 The Crazies 2010
8 Evil Dead II

Technically a remake of the original made with better budget, if you don't believe me watch them they are very similar the only difference is they took out the tree rape scene - germshep24

9 The Hills Have Eyes 2006
10 Friday the 13th (2009)

The original had very bad acting, was very boring, and unoriginal. The remake improved by giving the audience what they want - germshep24

I haven't seen this version but I found the original quote boring and unexciting. - ParasN2000

The original Friday the 13th was a pretty middle ranking movie of the Franchise, it isn't good and it isn't bad it just an average movie with a well done ending. If you want a true Friday movie you have to go with part 4 or 6, part 2 also god choice but can be slow at parts - germshep24
