Movies That Were Better Than Their Remakes

The Top Ten

1 Psycho

I can agree with this one. I saw the trailer for Psycho II and it looked horrible compared to the first movie. Yes the first movie's trailer was rubbish too, but at least the movie was pretty good. - Anonymousxcxc

2 The Karate Kid

I LOVED these movies when I went through my karate phase and took martial arts. - RockFashionista

The remake was good but this was better

3 Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Not bad, what happens is that the only good parts are the Johnny Depp

4 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Why is this on here twice?

5 Ringu

The original is better than Ringu and The Ring, because I have to see her well regarded

6 A Nightmare on Elm Street
7 When a Stranger Calls
8 Miracle on 34th Street

Ahhh!, everyone loves this so do not talk nonsense

9 Robocop
10 Planet of the Apes

The Contenders

11 Clash of the Titans (1981)

I liked this one as a kid, but the remake is crap!

12 Friday the 13th

The remake wasn't bad, but I still like this one better. But that's just me.

13 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1973)
14 The Great Gatsby

The sex scenes are spectacular so shut up

15 Evil Dead

Not bad, what happens is that the first was good in all languages

I think the first movie was better. - glambert
