I found the Dawn of the Dead remake to be largely forgettable, but I must say that I felt the opening sequence was very well done (in an action movie sense).  After the female lead reaches the mall, the film heads downhill for me.

I thought the Dawn of the Dead remake was really good and Sarah Polly was adorable. It barely qualified as a remake though. The only similarities with the original was it was zombies in a mall. The characters and story were completely different.

Let Me In was well received.

It's a prosthetic. A Barbiedollesque blank covering. They had to make her wear one to get the "R" rating instead of "NC-17". They talk about it on the DVD commentary.

Isn't that picture of Donald Sutherland that's shown for Invasion of the Body Snatchers really from the movie Don't Look Know?
 
2013-03-21 08:23:00 AM  
Dark Water? Really? Having seen both, I'd say the remake is a perfectly good family drama, but that's all it is. It's basically a neutered, sanitized version with the bargain at the end spelled out in giant letters to make sure absolutely everybody got it.

The rest of the list:

Texas Chainsaw thingie: Never seen any of these.
The Ring: The original was crude but effective, despite the cheap "inverse" effects. The remake was slick, shallow, and utterly awful.
Body Snatchers. I would have voted for this if it wasn't for a certain other movie.
Hills have Eyes: Haven't seen either.
The Grudge: The original TV-straight-to-video version -- "Ju-On" -- was great. IMO the japanese movie remake was OK, but nothing more. Ditto the Buffy version.
The Fly: I liked the remake, but never saw the original.
Don't be afraid of the dark: Meh to the remake. Never saw the original.
Dawn of the Dead: The opening scene was awesome. The rest was "just another zombie movie." Never saw the original. Also, seen enough zombies for a while.
The Thing: Got my vote. The original (1951) was only so-so. Carpenter's remake was something special. It didn't impress me that much when I first saw it, but it's aged well. (the recent "prequel / remake" was a big fat nothing, IMO)
 
2013-03-21 08:24:19 AM  
Half the list teh suck and I suspect The Thing is only on there is some stretch attempt to give it credibility.

So where is Psycho (1998)? It was a shot for shot remake except it added a scene of Vince Vaghn beating off whilst watching Anne Heche in the shower, which I thought was a much needed element that Alfred Hitchcock just dropped the ball on in the original. Plus there was an excellent view of Anne Heche's asshole. Alfred Hitchcock. Farking hack.

I don't know why everyone rails on that one. It wasn't a remake, it was a prequel. And in this day and age when we are retreading every farking thing under the son, it stands pretty much alone as a decently done homage to John's version. It's slow build, decent effects, and never feels like an inside joke. Hell, had the 85 version never been made the 2011 would have been up there as one of the best horror movies in a long time.

well that's the thing, it followed nearly the exact same plot and progression.  It never felt like it "added" to the horror or like it even tried to put a different spin on it.  I still enjoyed it, but I wanted something that was going to be slightly different.  The only added element was the language barrier, which wasn't much really.

Granted they were psychopaths and they weren't sure what they were capable of.  They could of sat in that room all day camping that door with the gun, but the sickos would've lit the cabin on fire.  I'm not sure of the number of times they could've killed them, but I don't think it was a high number.

I thought The Thing prequel just felt redundant as it more or less just rehash the plot of Carpenter's version,  but moved the location to the Norwegian base and without any underlying subtext like Carpenter's version. I also thought the effects were much worse than a movie made 30 years earlier.

The similar scenes in The Hills Have Eyes, The Devil's Rejects and at least one or two others are the only scenes that actually make my skin crawl (and the reason I've only seen those flicks once). Watching Last House on the Left (the original), I had to keep reminding myself that "it's just a movie". That scene...kind of makes you sad to be alive.

Yeah, 100%.  It was good, but the first part had me convinced I was about to watch a masterpiece.  The Johnny Cash "The Man Comes Around", the high overhead tracking shot/car accident on the farm road, all of it.

One of the bigger failures of the rest was an inability to create the mall as a functioning, coherent place.  In Romero's Dawn of the Dead you really have a sense of the building as an entire whole, making its fortress quality resonate so much more.  An underrated part of the original's brilliance.

hitchcock filmed a scene of janet leigh's naked body from above after she was killed, but it was cut out and replaced with a shot of the showerhead.  if he had to cut that out, there was definitely NOT going to be a fapping scene.

i think it may have been spliced in in more recent versions.  the naked janet leigh, not the fapping.


I thought the fapping is implied as Bates watches her shower (which was always part of the film). In Hitchcock's version, he just stares, but in Gus van Sant's abortion, you can hear heavy breathing and see convulsions as well. Same shots, slightly different direction.

what makes you think that they shouldn't or couldn't?  They seem like stalkers or they could have previously lived/killed there.  Maybe my suspension of disbelief is more open for horror and sci fi though.  I want to believe.

Because they became supernatural creatures instead of terrestrial threats.  I found it comical that they could approach rooms or sneak up in the ways they did.  If the filmmakers - to me - wanted them to have this knowledge, then they should have explained it.  One good thing about Scream, for example, is how blundering the villain is, running into furniture, etc., though obviously that movie has a different tone.  To me The Strangers would have been more effective if the relentless invaders overcame their limitations, made it more spooky/horrifying.

Tyrone Slothrop: I wouldn't consider The Thing a remake. They're both adaptations of the story "Who Goes There?", but Carpenter's version keeps the story's monster.


This.  The Thing From Another World is almost an entirely different story.  Carpenter's The Thing is pretty close to the book.  I wouldn't call Carpenter's a remake of the older movie considering how vastly different they are.

Fair enough.  I never felt that they were that powerful, especially once they broke outside, but I know what you're saying.  There are a lot of scenes in the beginning where they had to just show an invader in the background to keep things moving/suspenseful.  To me the story wasn't all about them, so I guess I gave them slack over the details.

My opinion here, but I think Dawn of the Dead is probably the most "realistic" (zombies aren't real) zombie apocalypse film. The shortage of weapons and supplies, loss of power after just under a month and internal struggles/personal conflicts in the group all seem very true to an isolated survivor situation. Outside of the whole "zombies won't eat dogs" thing I'd say DotD 2004 is the movie for those "zombie purists" upset with this or that in Walking Dead. Not to mention the extra DVD features of the newscast and the gunstore guy's video diary were great.

There's a book on screenwriting Called Save the Cat and in it author Blake Snyder breaks down film structure and gives suggestions as to on what page things should happen. The Fright Night remake hits them exactly on every one, to the minute. It's amazing.

This. Patricia Tallman and Tony Todd were a great pairing for that film.


I love this remake of Night of the Living Dead -- probably my favorite zombie movie. While the movie has some weaker supporting roles, Todd and Tallman are FANTASTIC and totally carry a film that would otherwise be a complete C-list shlock fest. Throw in some fantastic special effects and atmosphere and this movie is pretty damned solid. I still love Tony Todd's little speech he gives in front of that fireplace before he breaks that stick in half -- great acting

George Romero. With Night of the Living Dead, Day of the Dead and Creepshow, you rose to the level of master.
With Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead and Survival of the Dead you broke our hearts.
I felt that the remake of Dawn (with the exception of the zombie baby) was a far superior movie than the original. The original had a pie fight! A PIE FIGHT!!!
The remake of The Crazies, while forgettable, was also easier to watch than the original.
And as far as "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" is concerned, if I were writing synopsis for the cable guide, it would be "A dysfunctional family buys a gothic mansion and finds themselves besieged by a bunch of cartoon assholes".

I haven't see the original, but the American "Dark Water" is a steaming pile of telegraphed, predictable, cliché-riddled, exploitive bullpucky.

1) Why would Connelly move her and her daughter into a building that transparently gawdawful, even if she didn't know it was haunted? The place is a dark, dreary dump. It's very clear there's nothing keeping her from moving to a nice 'burb with good schools, etc.

2) Just having the creepy Reilly and sinister-seeming Postlethwaite as manager and super should be enough to make her say, "Thanks, but no thanks."

3) The foreshadowing throughout the first half-hour is about as subtle as a sledgehammer.

4) From the get-go it's insultingly obvious the identity of the ghost, where the corpse is hidden, and who the killer is.

5) And what few scares the film has rely entirely on that most contemptible kind of cinema horror: putting little kids in peril for cheap thrills.

It's absolute shiat, and that's being kind.

FeedTheCollapse: the remake of The Grudge is terrible. I've also seen Dark Water, but damn if I remember anything about it.


Sorry, I like The Grudge... It's been a long time since horror films did anything for me, although I like to still watch them, but The Grudge was fun. I think it's twofold though: 1. I like the Japan horror style, creepy kids showing up out of nowhere, climbing the wall in the background, etc. 2. When I was watching it, I was in the computer room, watching it on my computer. This was right across the hall from my kids' room, and we had gone somewhere that weekend where they got a couple of ballons that were now floating about 3 feet above the ground. The A/C kicked on, and suddenly , out of the corner of my eye, something goes slowly drifting through the dark. Freaked the fark out of me. No matter how good or bad a movie is, If I have that fun of a 'scared' moment to tie to it, it makes it worthwhile.

I stil think the movie was cool anyway. There's a lot on that list I wouldn't have thought of putting on there, but were good choices. Body Snatchers is a good example, somehow I'd forgotten that it was a remake, even though I've seen every version made.

This.

Opening was solid. Generic from that point on, which could have still been okay, but fast zombies for the ADD generation is what really lost me. Zombies are not fast, that is part of their creepiness.

My biggest zombie movie wish is that they remake Day Of The Dead using the original script which is AWESOME and way different than the movie they ended up making. Second biggest wish is for WWZ to become a mini-series on HBO.

I think fast zombies is why a lot of people hate the movie. To be honest IMO fast zombies make a lot of sense when they first turn not that they would stay that way. But yea they would eat any flesh dogs included. Those zombies were eating everything not just brains.

Also The Ring was pretty good and The Grudge was only ok. It would have been better if in the third act the "rules" of the grudge hadn't become wobbly. It's not the only movie to be guilty of internal structure inconsistancy which is far different from vampires being sparkly. If you establish that people have to come in to the house to be effected then you can't then later in the movie kill someone who never went in the house. If you establish that your warewolves get hairy but can still play basketball that is an entirely seperate matter.

The thing I always wonder about when I see a zombie movie, is why don't the zombies eat each other?

I had that saved on my old computer; one of the greatest screen pics EVAR!

I was watching Dawn Of The Dead not long ago and I can't get through it - that head security guard who feels he's the leader of a post-apocalyptic world while having no determinable skill aside from holding a handgun was WAY to farking annoying to deal with.
