Everyone must look so small from way up there on your high horses... Lol, for christs sake, its horror. Enjoy it, embrace it, or move past it. I don't see why every three months we need a new "I hate remakes" thread. Ive made my thoughts on this clear before. Basically if you don't want horror to fall to the wayside and disappear into oblivion then these big budget Hollywood remakes of classics and these overused sequels have to happen. I like remakes, even if they don't stand up to the original. Why you may ask? Because the originals aren't scary to teens now, they aren't even remotely as terrifying as they were for us. Kids and adults just getting into the genre need a new take on the classics. In order for horror to keep making the theaters it has to make money, If they made a perfect sequel using practical effects and stunning acting to bring back to life the characters we loved, a quarter of the number of people would go to the theater to see it and it would be beaten into absolution by Bridget Jones Diary 7. Movies have to be designed to appeal to a wide audience not just the handful of us that love the way they were.

As another take would go, how about all of the kids who go to see these remakes and love them. They do a little research and learn there is an original, so they hunt it out to see it. That's how you indoctrinate a new generation. If we sit and quietly stew about how great the original Texas Chainsaw was and don't realize that teenagers today would have no clue it ever existed unless they are made aware, we will eventually lose all of the originals as our generation dies out. Expand your horizons, its not necessary to be so damn crabby, and narrow minded.

How are we supposed to enjoy something that is just the same rehashed crap? I mean imagine it was Christmas every day. It would be fun for a while but then it would get so old and boring you would be sick of it.

That's exactly why you pay to go to the movies. Just don't go... Pretend it doesn't exist. But complaining about it gets us nowhere, short of making us look like weird elitist horror fanatics. Its the same feeling to those who haven't become members yet and are just flipping through the forum, as you get if you go to a Star Trek convention and say "Gosh those new Star Trek movies were awesome." and watch the scowls come in from the elitist Star Trek geeks.

Just out of curiosity, what was the last truly original movie that you loved?

Also to note, your previous post about the Dark Tower finally getting a film adaptation. On that we are in complete agreement. I am a HUGE Dark Tower fan.

Not really looking forward to the ones listed... well maybe the Fri13th and Chain Saw ones. But the of course I prioritize so they come second to what I'm really looking forward to.

That looks like it has huge potential.
