Dawn Of The Dead. It was not going to be any where near as good as the original, but it's still entertaining.

Of those on the list, the "Hills" remake is the winner for me, but I also liked the "TCM", "Friday" and "Halloween" reduxes and still have to catch up with "My Bloody Valentine"'s "reimagination".;)
I'm not too kenn on Asian horror remakes myself, but as those are a lot easier to watch with my missus, I should give the "Ring" remake some credit too.:o

God! I love A Bay Of Blood and would actually be delighted if anybody remade it for the century...with some neat variations! That ending is prizeless.:cool:

To be honest I didn't like any of them. :ack:

I didn't mind "The Hills Have Eyes" and I thought "Dawn Of The Dead" was entertaining though not exactly a remake. (The term re-imagining keeps getting bantered about.) As for the rest I really have no time for them. I usually make the effort to see a remake just in case there is something there worth catching but it inevitably ends in disappointment. I'm yet to find a J-Horror remake worth recommending.

I was surprised how good the Night of the Living Dead Re-Make was.

The Hills Have Eyes remake was as good as the original I thought.
Also enjoyed Day of the Dead but was never a fan of the original anyway.

Psycho was the worst of the ones that I have seen there.

I enjoyed Savini's Night of the Living Dead, Amityville and Assault on Precinct 13.

Yet to see My Bloody Valentine 3D though I think I'll like it.Night Of The Living Dead & Dawn Of The Dead were outstanding remakes & the Hills Have Eyes remake was also excellent.The Omen was watchable but the absence of Goldsmith's classic score harmed the film a great deal.The worst Psycho,The Haunting & the disgraceful remake of The Fog.
