OK, I won't. Youtube is blocked at my work so I'm lucky.  TeddyR

I hated the black xmas remake. probably the most obnoxious bunch of characters in a horror I've seen.

But...I grudgingly admit they at least did something a bit different with it. But it's cack, yeah.


I would imagine that the word 'cack' means pretty much the same as the Afrikaans slang word does.  Wink

I will also chuck in the "Friday The 13th" remake

considering how many sequels it's had they might as well have just made a Friday The 13th Part XXXVIII or whatever, instead of starting again from scratch and making it so lame. The remake added nothing!

The true winner:

The Last House on the Left

The original was made because, with graphic murder recently depicted, graphic rape was logically the next thing someone would try to get away with.

The remake ... had no purpose. It was already known you could get away with depicting graphic rape.

yeah. LHOTL remake I just found dull. it was technically good but had none of the quirky charm or off-the-wall weirdness of the first one. so....what was the point?!

ISOYG remake wasn't good, but I actually liked it a bit better than the original. The lead actress was surprisingly decent I thought.  (then again I really cant stand the original.)

Funny Games, Death at a Funeral

both were exactly the same as the original, just made so that americans would watch them.

That's how I'd describe REC and Quarantine. They're 99.5% the exact same movie with some sexual interest between the female reporter and leading fireman thrown in for the American audience. Dialogue, camera angles; virtually the same.

Of course, the obvious differences become clear when REC 2 follows the events of the first film in finding a cure and Quarantine 2 is randomly about three college girls on an airplane with deadly kill-thingies. I've seen the senario done before and much better in worse movies. Lookingup

Cabo Blanco: the lame re-make of that little known film with Humphrey Bogart......  Buggedout



Maybe the producers thought we were idiots and wouldn't recognize the storyline.....

This is true. The "remake" wasn't any better, or any worse, than most of the "original series" F13's.

How'bout the "un-official" James Bond movie, Never Say Never Again? It's essentially a retread of 1965's Thunderball, with some added jabs at Connery's age.

for some reason I always enjoy watching "Never Say Never Again" when it comes on tv. I love the video game 'Domination' scene and the bit where he massages that lady to get info... it's just campy fun.

 maybe if I was to sit down and analyse the Bond films properly I'd find out it was a poor relation to the 'real' ones but as it stands I quite like it, lol

The Wicker Man (2006) was worse than pointless...it was insulting. Sure, they tried something a little different, but that "different" sucked donkey nuts. I think they were just trolling everyone with that flick.

The Invasion seemed pretty pointless. Just how many Body Snatchers remakes are there? Only the original film and the first remake from the 70s are really worthwhile.

Yeah, that one was no great shakes, aside from the sight of Nicole Kidman in tight sweaters.  TeddyR

I really disliked the A Nightmare On Elm Street remake. Why turn Freddy in to a pedophile?
