He's Back!!!!! In theaters AUGUST 31ST...

Check out the trailers at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0373883/ . The remake looks really good. I will definately check it out when it hits the theaters.

Any thoughts on Rob Zombie's remake of Halloween? Do you think it will compare to the original?

Remakes don't bother me. I think it's interesting to see the orginals compared to the remakes. With the differences in technology now. And yes, 9 out of 10 times the orginal is better than the remake.

But this Halloween movie actually looks like it going to be really good. Will it compare to the orig.? We will have to see!!!

Remakes never work, although If he makes it his own as RZ has stated he intends to do then it might just stand a chance!

The very fact that John "Hit & Miss" Carpenter as far as I am aware is not involved is a bonus!

The Fog Anybody!

Also what's with all the remakes leave the originals be you cannot better them so why not think of something new!

Saw & its respected sequels I thought where cracking modern day horrors' so more of this and less of that!

Seriously. I've seen quite a few remakes and only a couple have even been on par with the original, most are just cack. I mean they're even remaking sequels now, sheesh.

Mire Mare, I totally agree with you about the Fog remake. It was such a disappointment.

I would have to say that TMNT was terrible. It did not compare to the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Also, another i would have to say that sucked was the Transformers movie.

These two were big disappointments and didn't compare at all!!!!!!

i also wanted to give an example of a remake that i thought was better than the original:

Dawn of the Dead

The remake definately was awesome. The orginal was slow paced and a little boring at times. I like the fact that the remake had the zombies running. Now, that's scary!!! It's much better than having the zombies walking slow paced. The beginning of the movie was great when the little zombie girl was running towards the bedroom, I was seriously on the edge of my seat. I loved it!!! I'm a big fan of zombie movies and this one definately exceeded my expectations of a remake.

I think remakes are a waste of time,especially when its an already popular movie being remade.Just look at ALFIE with Jude Law...it was awful because it couldnt hold a candle to the original with Sir Michael Of Caine.A pointless remake.Dawn of the Dead was awful too,even Ving Rhames couldnt save it.
But where does it end.....?
Can you imagine in a few years time some bright spark thinkin lets redo STAR WARS or INDIANA JONES for example. 'cos i bet itll happen,no film seems safe.

You know, I was just on anopther site talking about this with somebody: Why doesnt Rob Zombie use his powers for GOOD instead of EVIL?

he knows a lot about horror movies and I'm sure there are thousands of unsung gems in his personal collection that people have never heard of. He should be re-making lesser-known chestnuts that not many people know about...gaining them long overdue recognition.

Someone on FLIXSTER suggested RZ re-make SPIDER BABY. I think thats a great idea! SPIDER BABY is a creepy little cult classic that has a small core audience. Why not remake it and bring a whole new audience to it? There would be a bunch of teenagers going to see it not even realizing its a re-make! And there would be people who LIKED the original who would go see his take on the film. Well, thats what I think anyway.

I dont think irts ROB ZOMBIE re-making HELLRAISER- but I read something about somneone remaking HELLRAISER. God Save The Queen- WHY WOULD THEY REMAKE HELLRAISER???? That movie is awesome! Just like HALLOWEEN it should be left alone!

The Exorcist and The Exorcist III are truly great leave them alone ya *******s!

Isn't there a rumor that they are remaking the Goonies?

Now, they need to leave that movie alone. That's a classic that needs not touched!

Not Horror: But I heard they are re-making REVENGE OF THE NERDS and PORKYS too. And I THINK I heard they are re-making FRIDAY THE 13TH (?)

Now, sure: None of these movies are what I consider "High Art"....(well, maybe PORKYS!) but they do not need re-makes!

I think they stopped with production of the Porky's remake. I think it had something to do with Bob Clark's death, but don't quote me on that one.

Porky's is the best. I remember the first time i saw it was on USA Up All Night.

I hope they don't try to remake this one.

Michael Bay's name has been tied to the Friday the 13th remake so you can almost guarantee it's gonna suck horribly....

Great, now Jason'll probably blow his victims up afterwards just to be sure, then blow up with Hiroshima force himself at the end.
