I sound like a broken record cos I've mentioned it a few times here recently, but there's a whole other movie contained within The Keep novel. Michael Mann what were you thinking ?

Favourite: The Ring (2002), I saw it before the original Japanese version and I actually think they're both equally good for different reasons. I loved The Ring's atmosphere and found it scarier while Ringu was more intriguing with its mythos and culture (e.g. the sea seems to play a major role in its own way).

Worst: I can't remember which remakes I've seen but I didn't like The Uninvited (2009). I didn't hate it but it felt really PG-13. The music is really nice though, Christopher Young is a genius.

Most Wanted: I kinda wish the Suspiria remake went through if only because I have a morbid curiosity.

A few favourites: The Fly (1986), The Thing (1982), Maniac (2012).

Worst: The Fog remake is probably one of the worst that I've seen, but there are many other very poorly executed (and seemingly pointless) remakes out there. I tend to avoid most remakes now though due to my general experience of how they are usually handled.

Most wanted: Difficult to say, but The Running Man springs immediately to mind. I'd love to see someone remake this more in line with the serious, more dark source material.

The Let the Right One In remake was pretty good as was Finchers Dragon Tattoo. Hills Have Eyes I loved at the cinema but strangely I haven't watched it since. MBV was fun.

Bad - tough as I've actively avoided the majority of these. Halloween - saw that and hated all this psychological bullshit - Myers is evil behind a mask. End of story, the more you know the less scary he becomes. Ditto Friday the 13th.

Remake possibilities - I'm disappointed the proposed French Hellraiser didn't go through - it's looking a little dated and the sequels have stunk the joint out - a brutal remake about a libertine summoning demons he can't control could be good, as long as it didn't feature a bunch of MTV dweebs with six packs and fake tits.

I don't class Day of the Dead as a remake, it bares little resemblance to Romero's film, still shite mind
