Modern remakes are pretty appalling I agree. Must admit to enjoying the 80's remakes of The Thing and The Blob though, and even Cat People had its moments (despite chronic overlength).

I prefer the remakes of The Blob and The Thing over the originals.

With "Cat People" Nastassja Kinsky getting her kit off was a major plus.

Or is that just me?

Like many of you, I like Aja's Hills Have Eyes a lot, even more than the original. I also had a great time watching Dawn of the Dead. It's for me a totally different movie than Romero's version, so I didn't even bother comparing them.

House of Wax was also fun.

The US Dark Water failed to reproduce the atmosphere and the tension of Hideo Nakata's masterpiece, but it was still an interesting drama. Jenifer Connelly is amazing in it.

The worse remake in this list is for me Psycho. It's a perfect example of a stupid useless remake that doesn't bring anything new. It's remaking for the sake of remaking.

I also thought House of Wax was fun.

Re- Last House

I wonder if the violence will be on par with the original, because the violence in some recent films has been very strong, and Presumably the film was cut for the R.
