#Horror Movie Sequels & Remakes

Beetlejuice (1988) Poster.  Zombieland (2009) Poster



You can't help but cringe when you hear about old favorites getting sequels or being remade (and why?))

A favorite is Beetlejuice. (1988 - really?) Beetlejuice 2 is in the works. At least it's still Tim Burton and Michael Keaton. Hope it's as good. 

 Another favorite is Zombieland - can they keep the humor and fun intact in Zombieland 2?


Here's where it gets touchy. Usually you have to say, really? Most are not needed and are not a good idea.

The Birds (1963) Poster

Poltergeist (1982) Poster

 There were rumors about remaking Hitchcock's The Birds (1963). Now that takes some guts to even think you can do better or even want to try.

Then there are classics like Poltergeist,(1982) with  a remake already out. Some really don't need to be remade. Haven't seen it, have you? 

I loved The Stand book by Stephen King. And while the movie was cheesy at times, I liked it. Not sure where the big remake stands right now. 

Here are some other films The Telegraph lists for reboots or remakes. (Another Frankenstein? You really can't top Karloff from the 1931 original. You'll have to be the judge of the others.)

Share your thoughts or comments on your favorites.
