My problem withthe remakes, is they tend to re-write the story. Not necesarily a bad thing in itself, but they kill the true horror feel of the movie, and replace it with millions in sfx. The House on Haunted Hill was a great story, and scared me. Same with 13 Ghosts and The Haunted. Then they remade them, and it was visually graphic, but the stories were weak.

My favorites? Dr. Faust, and Attack of the Mushroom People. I was about 3 or 4 when I saw these, and the images are with me to this day.

Speaking of terrible remakes...

...anyone see the mind-buggeringly terrible remake of "Get Carter," with Stallone playing Jack Carter?

I still can't get my head around how bad it is.

Michael, a Thing 2 would be nice. I never got around to reading the comic book though. IMO, John Carpenter's The Thing is one of the most underrated horror movies out. If they re-released it in theaters today, this horror movie would make current horror flicks look like child's play (which they still do, even without a Thing re-released.)

I agree. I think it's the worst movie I've seen in a theater, and that includes Battefield: Earth.
