Top Ten Worst Movie Remakes

Over the past two decades, remaking movies has really taken off. Thing is, some movies weren't made to be re-made. This is the top ten worst movie remakes.

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Total Recall

I think this movie is better than the Original. The action scenes with the very beautiful Kate Beckinsale are awesome. She's way better than Sharon Stone.

Never took place on Mars, what the hell!

I can't say this is one of the worst remakes ever. The cast is better ( Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel... ) than the Original.

A swing and a miss.

22 Halloween
23 The Amazing Spider-Man

So many people went nuts over this movie and I can't understand why, I thought it was decent but the original trilogy was 10000000000 times better, this franchise is just a cluttered underwhelming unfocused mess, with a dick Peter Parker and hollow villains, and it was a little too soon for a reboot, it usually happens after a movie has been out for at least 10 years, spiderman 3 came out in 2007 and the first amazing spiderman came out in 2012, that's only 5 years, and why did you have to make it darker and more realistic? Those are the 2 things that make comic book movies suck. And people are saying this is the better series, well then why is it having a bunch of problems? I see this franchise as the attempt to make a better franchise but just makes one that's just decent and nowhere near the awesomeness of the original. Maybe next time they'll get it right

Do people actually think the Amazing Spider-Man franchise is better then the original, let's see, 2002's Spider-Man got an 89% critic rating, Amazing Spider-Man got 73% Spider-Man 2 got 94% Amazing Spider-Man 2 got 53%, so, in what way is the new franchise better?

When this movie first came out so many people were just trying to convince themselves that these movies are better than the originals, At least now more and more people are waking up and realizing just how pathetic this franchise is

This movies was great I liked it better then Toby McGuire’s spider man this spider man is the best ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Movie

24 Fantastic Four (2015)

Worst movie of all time

Worst movie of 2015

Worst reboot

It looks like a long intro on how the four will become the fantastic four. It's only on the last twenty minutes of the movie that you really can say " it's a fantastic four movie ".If they would have made follow-up movies from this one, it could have made sense, but they didn't... Pitty, because I like Kate Mara as an actress.
As for the movie " remake ". It's not really a remake. It has its originality ( not a succes one ) but it's completely different than the other " fantastic four " movies I saw.

25 The Thing

It isn't a remake, it is a prequel to the 1982 remake.

I rely like it thought

Technically it's a remake of the 1951 version, this is the 1982 version, in which case what the hell is it doing here? this movie rocks

26 Children of the Corn
27 Carrie (2013)

What a disgrace! The original was creepy and unpredictable. The 2002 remake was better than this too

I saw this with my friends, I was trying to not laugh. - MoldySock

If you love Carrie 1997, please never see this remake!

The " Carrie " movie with Sissy Spaceck will be unbeatable but this one was not that bad ( but certainly not better than the Original ). I really can't consider this however as a " worst movie remake ".

28 One Missed Call
29 Red Dawn

Does Hollywood expect me to believe that North Korea, one of the poorest countries in the world, can carry out an invasion of the United States?

30 RoboCop

It always bothers me when they remake an old movie that was originally rated R and tone it down to PG-13, the 2 most annoying examples are the remakes of total recall and robocop, cause they REALLY held back on the cool violent action in these remakes, in total recall it wasn't AS bad as robocop, with robocop it's just annoying, Murphy's death wasn't good at all, in the original he got shot down by criminals which made it a lot more personal and allowed us to feel for him, in the remake all that happens is he goes outside and his car blows up, that's not anywhere near the amount of impact the original had

Should be in the top 5 - boring, stupid

31 The Pink Panther 2

I absolutely hate this movie it's too adulterous, disgusting, terrible and very stereotypical and racist!
Rubbish piece of garbage and crap
Steve Martin was bad in the film

I only liked Kenji and Randall! The rest of the actors are bad and rubbish!

The most racist, adulterous and most stereotypical comedy crime movie ever seen!

I hate the fact that Closeau was being racist towards Japanese people by calling them little yellow friends and stereotyping of what they eat and how they drive! And he said blondes are

Worst Movie ever!
My rating: 1/10
Rubbish film!
I'll never watch it on a big screen!

32 The Stepford Wives
33 TMNT (2007)

This entire movie feels like a sequel to a movie that doesn't exist

Even the 2012 Ninja Turtles show is way better than this movie - AnimeFan2000

34 The Ghost in the Shell

This is techally an adaptation of a popular anime or manga.

35 Gremlin
36 The Invasion
37 Get Carter
38 When a Stranger Calls
39 Rollerball

This is the movie that killed John McTiernan's directing career and somehow got him serving time in jail.
