"It" might join your list.....
I haven't seen it yet but I'm hoping it's as amazing as everyone says it is.
It isn't. There's stuff in the original TV film, as badly made, and badly aged, as it is, that is handled better and works more effectively as a horror than the remake. But sure, if you like loud noises, it might be for you.
13 Ghosts, Carrie, Texas Chainsaw??
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake may not be as classic, but it is definitely a very well made film. It's the film that started the insane horror classic remake craze. Carrie? The performances, the mood, the music??? The author is insane! THERE IS NO WAY THAT REMAKE COULD POSSIBLY TOUCH THE ORIGINAL!!!!
I'm a little baffled that Carrie is on your list, whilst omitting an out and out cult classic of another John Carpenter film in The Thing. I mean, seriously? I look at a lot of these film more as updates rather than pure remakes.
