Top 10 Worst Horror Movie Remakes
The Top Ten
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.
The main problem was the CGI face that undercut Jackie Earl Haley, Freddy is a very emotional character and his facial impressions are very important and they took away that expression by covering have his mouth, other than that was Jackie wasn't very good with dark humor so his dark comedy fell flat - germshep24
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.
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! - Snackfan
It tried to do something with a backstory but the storytelling is bad and the dialouge is so disgusting its impossible to watch - TheGrayDude55
I kind of liked this remake... sure it has it's flaws but it's a lot better than that dreadful Elmstreet remake...
Not awful but very disappointing - Alexandr
Worst than any remake.
This wasn't the best of the Friday movies but it is much better than people give it credit for, probably one of the most underrated horror movies, this movie had a great Jason, the lead character is likable, and the killers are really good - germshep24
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 - SuperheroSith
Horrible but better than the original
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.
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 - germshep24
What this was an amazing film great acting great horror and amazing effects?
This movie was awful in every way. - TheGrayDude55
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
The saving grace is the tough as nails people. - Snackfan
So funny. It's sad - Alexandr
Bad and stupid compared to classic original movie - Alexandr
Too loud to be good, if only the movie ended in the hospital scene
What was the point of making a sequel to a remake?
Your movie sucks
Rob Zombie doesn't necessarily make bad movies, his style just doesn't work for a Halloween Movie - germshep24
1990 version was the best. At least for me but this useless remake sucked - Alexandr
Paris Hilton, enough said. - Dancedom
The only real problem with this movie was they attempting to give an origin story to the killer for no reason and that origin story was just dumb - germshep24
Both versions were horrible! Anyway, 95 percent of remakes are bad. Why do filmmakers keep doing them?
Black Christmas. A subtle, beautiful slasher, even the first. Has one of the best endings in horror history.
Black X-Mas. Contains child rape. - Snackfan
The original was a horror masterpiece. It didn't even need a remake.
I like it. Why is it here?
Because it is a remake and all remakes are bad, unless the original is so old that must haven't seen it you should just be glad that the fly, the thing, invasion of the body snatchers isn't on here
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 liked this film but then I watched original one and changed my mind - Alexandr
