Top 10 Worst Horror Movie Remakes

The Top Ten
1 The Wicker Man (2006)

It not only shows shoddy acting, it also features Nicholas Cage yelling at every one of the residents of the island for no good reason. Important plot points and themes that made the original worth watching were not included and misogyny was promoted as acceptable throughout the whole damn farce of a movie as Nicky Cage punches various females and, at one point, steals a woman's bicycle from her at gunpoint!

It's horrendous, but it's pretty funny.

No not the bees not the bees!

2 A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

It was an insult to the original 1984 classic. It sacrificed character development, plot, suspense growth, and tension building for attention deficit editing, jump scares, shoddy writing, and toothless scares. (Seriously, does anyone want to tell me what a car crash that happened in this ADHD-riddled remake has to do with Fred Krueger?)

The guy who played Freddy looked like a monkey. Robert looked so much better. Freddy was HIS character!

And whats Carrie doing on here? I thought that was a good movie.

Not as bad as it seems, there were some good points, this one is the best remake of the world if compared with Zombie's Halloween.

I was so upset that they made this as a Nightmare fan. It got me so mad. Robert's the only Freddy and everyone knows it.

3 Psycho (1998)

Why does this movie exist? It's just the same thing, but with technicolor! These remakes should go to Hell where they belong!

Vince Vaughn was Norman Bates? Nicholas Cage would have been a better choice!

4 Halloween (2007)

Jump on the band wagon Meyers was only supposed to be in this movie.check his tattoo out it will tell a lot about a plot in haddonfield. Plus hasn't anyone wonder how Meyers learned to drive he did respectfully to all traffic speeds and a full stop at stop sign!

I kind of liked this remake... sure it has it's flaws but it's a lot better than that dreadful Elmstreet remake...

Worst than any remake.

5 Friday the 13th (2009)

Didn't feel like a Friday the 13th film. Jason was too tall and the Tom Cruise looking guy didn't die fast enough. All that mess about Jason having underground tunnels was a bunch of crap! Kane Hodder could have done a better movie blindfolded!

.. No words can say how much this sucked

6 Children of the Corn (2009)
7 The Fog (2005)

This remake lost everything that made the original such a classic, and just added so much unnecessary rubbish. The overuse of CGI was distracting and lame. What made the original so scary was what you DIDN'T see. This just throws everything in your face and makes it silly.

8 Carrie (2013)

Chloe tried her best with Carrie, but the surrounding characters don't sell their characters well to elevate her attempt, so she appears to just be a troubled teen instead of a bullied troubled teen and that lack of bullied completely took away from what the book had did and the original. this movie focuses too much on the telekinesis trying to make Carrie look cool instead of misunderstood and taking away from the horror story.

They turned Carrie into a Supernatural YA type movie which is a huge sin

What this was an amazing film great acting great horror and amazing effects?

9 The Thing (2011)
10 The Haunting (1999)

This movie was awful in every way.

The Contenders
11 The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

I'm a huge fan of original Hills Have Eyes (1977) but didn't like this one. The acting was trash plus they changed the storyline a little bit and ignored a few important facts

The saving grace is the tough as nails people.

12 Please Don't Eat My Mother (1973)

So funny. It's sad

13 One Missed Call (2008)
14 Prom Night (2008)
15 April Fool's Day (2008)
16 Halloween II (2009)

What was the point of making a sequel to a remake?

Too loud to be good, if only the movie ended in the hospital scene

17 Thir13en Ghosts (2001)
18 Night of the Living Dead 3D (2006)

1990 version was the best. At least for me but this useless remake sucked

19 Black Christmas (2006)

Both versions were horrible! Anyway, 95 percent of remakes are bad. Why do filmmakers keep doing them?

20 The Wolfman (2010)
21 House of Wax (2005)

Paris Hilton, enough said.

22 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

The original was a horror masterpiece. It didn't even need a remake.

23 It (2017)

Now I've studied horror for a long time and this is what I have to say.
Why the hell is this movie on the list. It's ' Brilliant!

I like it. Why is it here?

24 The Hitcher (2007)

I liked this film but then I watched original one and changed my mind

25 Mirrors (2008)
