I don't want to get controversial here, but the redux doesn't fare THAT bad with non-British audiences, who for the most part didn't even know that the original "Wicker Man" movie existed.
I DO however understand your pain, though I've heard a couple of movie-lines far worse than the "bike" bit in my film watching lifetime.

BTW: I didn't even know that a "House on Sorority Row" remake was on its way...:

As far as I'm concerned, why not? I'm always a sucker for the good, ol' slasher routine

It's no question of the redux being the inferior film, it's just a lot easier to bear for the audiences, who didn't grew up with the original.

Errrr...no
To me, it was a mediocre mainstream horror viewing experience, so the vote went to Aja's "Hills" redux instead.

Hills remake for me,even the sequel was pretty good,and a lot better than cravens lame 80's effort.

Also enjoyed the halloween remake and tcm,and to a lesser extent the friday and mbv ones.
Dunno if any of you have seen quarantine,the american remake of the excellent rec. Its not bad,but a lot of the backstory from the original is missing,which kinda spoils it somewhat. But for downright shit your pants scenes,rec wins hands down.

With the consensus on the fog and the wicker man being the worst,although the recent prom night remake/re-imagining beats em all,hands down. Utter garbage!!

This flick has some of the biggest plotholes and dumbest actions i've seen in a long time.A chore to sit through,it has to be said.
Enjoy!

Me personally i hate remakes

The prob with remakes is they lack what the originals had, Tension atmosphere compasion etc etc
I quite only quite enjoyed tcm remake but the original is 1 of my all time fav

If u can make a film that praticaly has no violence gore etc etc and yet be so controversol then that to me is a good piece of film making

I didnt real get into the wicker man so not interested in watching the remake (also cos i cant take to nicholas cage) not saying he rubbish tho

Over the yrs some films have been violent gory etc etc and yet no 1s batted a eye lid

Look at how many remake hollywood has made of the jap r korean horrors yet every 1 is pure shite

I just come back from my hols and on the flight was the remake of day the earth stood still, to me it was a film of just special effects and with famous actors nothing else. a total bore

I heard there making a basket case remake lol pmsl thatl be interesting to see how shit thatl be
