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 (1987)

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
