Worst Horror Remakes


The Top Ten

1 The Wicker Man (2006) 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!

2 A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) 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.

I don't think it's that bad. I mean I like the idea of a darker a Freddy Krueger. Which is what Wes Craven wanted in the first place

4 Halloween (2007) Halloween (2007)

Not awful but very disappointing - Alexandr

5 Friday the 13th (2009) Friday the 13th (2009)
6 The Haunting (1999) The Haunting (1999)
7 Children of the Corn (2009) Children of the Corn (2009)
8 Carrie (2013) Carrie (2013)

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

9 The Fog (2005) 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.

10 The Hills Have Eyes (2006) 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

The Contenders

11 The Thing (2011) The Thing (2011)
12 Please Don't Eat My Mother (1973) Please Don't Eat My Mother (1973)

So funny. It's sad - Alexandr

13 Prom Night (2008) Prom Night (2008)

Bad and stupid compared to classic original movie - Alexandr

14 Night of the Living Dead 3D (2006) Night of the Living Dead 3D (2006)

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

15 One Missed Call (2008) One Missed Call (2008)
16 April Fool's Day (2008) April Fool's Day (2008)
17 Thir13en Ghosts (2001) Thir13en Ghosts (2001)
18 Halloween II (2009) Halloween II (2009) V 1 Comment
19 House of Wax (2005) House of Wax (2005) V 1 Comment
20 The Hitcher (2007) The Hitcher (2007)

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