The Top Ten

1 The Thing (1982)

I can't believe this classic wasn't even in this list. This film was much better than original. The Thing (1982) is one of the greatest Sci-Fi movies ever! - Alexandr

2 The Ring

The new one wasn't scary

3 Invasion of the Body Snatchers

definitely the best movie about body snatchers and way better than original. The ending was sad but the whole film was classic - Alexandr

4 The Fly
5 Dawn of the Dead

The Ring? Seriously? This brilliant remake should be #1 or at least Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), The Thing, The Blob.
Dawn of the Dead is classic of the 00's - gory, scary, impressive, fast, shocking... I can go on and on - Alexandr

This movie is bad--s, it is one of the best Zombie movies around... Come on... The Ring#1... Go watch the movie and see for yourself.

I vote dawn of the dead because that was the best zombie or horror movies remake

6 The Thing

As if the original wasn't scary enough they had to do a remake. Both version of this movie are so friggin freaky its not even funny. - fireinside96

These is the best yet best character movie, mary elizabeth is the best actress - hamidabuat

7 The Crazies
8 The Hills Have Eyes
9 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

one of the best horror films of decade 2000-2009. I love it as much as original. Jessica Biel looked awesome. - Alexandr

My best horror movie ever.. And I can't wait to watch the ne part in 2013... I love this film espacially because jessica biel is the heroine

12 Nosferatu the Vampyre
13 The Evil Dead (2013)

I really glad, should be high

This is one big gorefest, but u know what? It works fine, although there aren't any proper "jumpscares" it's way more watchable than the original, with didn't really stand the test of time, but I believe this remake did it's justice. Cool movie

14 Friday the 13th

Derek played a good Jason but everything else kind of sucked... especially the acting. - CaptainMowzker

Two words. Jared Padalecki.

15 King Kong (2005)

IT'S SO AWESOME! MUCH BETTER THAN ORIGINAL! If you haven't seen this, you are missing out!

17 House on Haunted Hill (1999)

No joke here. This remake was awesome and even better than boring original - Alexandr

very underrated remake. I love it and think it was as good as original. Talentless Paris Hilton was the only one bad thing here - Alexandr

I didn't expect much from this film but it turned into great, interesting sci-fi/horror flick.. It was too short though - Alexandr

I loved this remake with Colin Farrell - Sabbath
