Worst Horror Remakes

Alexandr

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 the s*** out of various females and, at one point, steals a woman's bicycle from her at gunpoint!

No not the bees not the bees!

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

Not the bes! Bleck pluh! Nooo.

2 A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

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.

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? ) - queen11

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.

Horrible and dull

4 Halloween (2007)

Not awful but very disappointing - Alexandr

Worst than any remake.

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!

5 Friday the 13th (2009)
6 Children of the Corn (2009)

Horrible but better than the original

7 The Thing (2011)
8 The Haunting (1999)
9 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 - Alexandr

10 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.
