HORROR MOVIES THEY SHOULD OF NEVER REMADE IN MY OPINION

I don't think any classic films should be
remade but there are a very good horror
remakes that can do a justice as the
originals did and when it's done with
the director's own version of the first movie.

But there are others that should not be
*beep* with at all.

“ This piece of junk from 2007 and the most

I didn't own the 1986 classic until after.
When we were leaving the theater, asked
my paps if we can go get the original film.
He agreed and I was thankful for that.
So we rushed over to Best Buy to get
the real Hitcher.

I watched it later that night and was blown
away with it. In my mind, I was thinking wow,
this is way better than piece of *beep* remake.
Plus we wasted are money on the Michael Bay
film which is even sadder.

Sean Bean did alright as the villain but I think
Rutger Hauer was way better as the Hitcher
John Ryder. The lead actor/actress sucked
ass in my opinion. ” - bigrudedogg87

“ Hated this one. Was not scary at all and
was just too stupid as hell and boring as
hell. Can't believe I wasted my money
on this piece of *beep* movie, well I could of
spended it on something better.

This is why damn Hollywood needs to leave
the Asian horror films alone.

Hollywood use to be better back in the days
but now they suck ass. Only a handful
of good movies come out these days.

I don't know why they keep remaking them
but why not just *beep* showed them
in are theaters near us? So we the American
going movie Audience could discover these films
on the big screen and know about them.

Most of us movie crowds, come
in to see these *beep* remakes of Asian
horror films and thinking they're original
made because I guess so Hollywood
pretend to be original by ripping off
someone else's work from other countries
and make us look like idiots. Plus ripping
us off for our money. You *beep* *beep*

Maybe the only horror remakes of Asian
films I actually enjoyed was The Ring(which
kick started it), The Grudge and Alexandre
Aja's Mirrors(which I didn't know was a remake
from South Korea called Into the Mirror, which I
still haven't seen but this one was pretty good)
That's about it.

Hollywood!
Just stop...please just
stop remaking cult American horror films
and Asian horror films. You pricks have
nothing better to do but ruin people's
masterpieces and imagination. ” - bigrudedogg87

Director: Gus Van Sant
“ Just a shot for shot remake which
didn't work and it was lame as hell.

You already knew Norman Bates
was the killer. Made nothing new
and no suspense what so ever.

Had good actors in it but they couldn't
save the film even if they're acting was
more impressing than the original.
Sadly not, this film remake should of never
been made and was just a rip off on the
movie audience.

I'm sorry Vince Vaughn? What the *beep*
were they thinking? He's a good actor
and all, funny sometimes but he just
wasn't right for the role, it didn't seem
to fit him.
Hey.. it's the Swingers guy or Wedding
Crashers guy or the Old School dude
playing Norman Bates. Just *beep* stupid.

Anthony Perkins was way better
in the role and God rest his soul.
He most of been rolling in his grave
when he heard the Swingers clown
was taking his role for the remake. ” - bigrudedogg87

Hollywood needs to stay away from
the Asian horror films but they won't.
Those *beep* will do anything
for a fast buck.


The only good thing about this crappy film
which is sadly they had the legendary
Brad Dourif in it but only in a small cameo
part. Probably was a good thing because
I don't think he could saved this diarrhea
of a movie. ” - bigrudedogg87

“ This cult early 80s slasher film was made fine

Make it rated PG-13?
Because Hollywood has they're
head up they're fat asses.

Top of that, we still haven't got a two disc special
edition of this classic, which really sucks.

You would think when the *beep* remake came
out, they would of giving us a brand new transfer
quality and a *beep* load of features. But sadly,
that never happened. Yeah, they re-released
on dvd but it doesn't have *beep* on it but
bare-bones like the other ones they came
out with for years now. Especially nowadays
I don't see a future for a two disc special edition
for Prom Night 1980 anytime soon. It's sad but true.
Until than, I hope they prove me wrong, I really do. ” - bigrudedogg87
