Top 10 Worst Horror Movie Remakes

The Top Ten

1 The Wicker Man (2006) The Wicker Man (2006) Product Image

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!

Not the bes! Bleck pluh! Nooo.

2 A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) Product Image

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?)

I miss Robert so much! They made so many mistakes in this movie!
1) Freddy has a twisted way with humor and funny puns
2) Freddy was a janitor not a gardener
3) Freddy worked at a high school not a preschool
4) Freddy's skin is not surpose to look like burned cheese

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.

3 Psycho (1998) Psycho (1998) Product Image

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) Halloween (2007) Product Image

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...

Not awful but very disappointing

Worst than any remake.

5 Friday the 13th (2009) Friday the 13th (2009) Product Image

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

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

6 Children of the Corn (2009) Children of the Corn (2009) Product Image

Horrible but better than the original

7 The Fog (2005) The Fog (2005) Product Image

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 The Thing (2011) The Thing (2011) Product Image
9 Carrie (2013) Carrie (2013) Product Image

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?

10 The Haunting (1999) The Haunting (1999) Product Image

This movie was awful in every way.

The Contenders

11 The Hills Have Eyes (2006) The Hills Have Eyes (2006) Product Image

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) Please Don't Eat My Mother (1973) Product Image

So funny. It's sad

13 One Missed Call (2008) One Missed Call (2008) Product Image
14 Prom Night (2008) Prom Night (2008) Product Image

Bad and stupid compared to classic original movie

15 April Fool's Day (2008) April Fool's Day (2008) Product Image
16 Halloween II (2009) Halloween II (2009) Product Image

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

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

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

19 The Wolfman (2010) The Wolfman (2010) Product Image
20 House of Wax (2005) House of Wax (2005) Product Image

Paris Hilton, enough said.

21 Black Christmas (2006) Black Christmas (2006) Product Image

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

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

Black Christmas. A subtle, beautiful slasher, even the first. Has one of the best endings in horror history.

Black X-Mas. Contains child rape.

22 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) Product Image

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

23 It (2017) It (2017) Product Image

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!

24 The Hitcher (2007) The Hitcher (2007) Product Image

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