I know, I know. . . . . . many people pan remakes or the THOUGHT of a remake without giving it a chance. Purists at heart ? Or narrow minded ? Or simply sold on the idea that the first is a classic ? (A genuine truth for most great movies) BUT. . . . . on many an occasion a remake has either stood side by side with the original, kinda the old classic and the NEW classic, and other times the remake has actually triumphed over the original. My favorite remakes are
THE FLY, RETURN OF THE FLY. (LOVE the great Vinny Price but the remakes rock) THE BLOB, HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, THE CRAZIES, THE HILLS HAVE EYES, THE THING, HOUSE OF WAX, THE TOOLBOX MURDERS (2004), FRIGHT NIGHT.
What are your favorite remakes ? Why ?
