I saw poseiden at the the start of kong. cuoldn't believe how crappy it looked, in light of the horrid TV version that got cut down from a 2 parter to a single TVM. Even more heart breaking is Andre Braugher was featured in the trailer. One of my favorite actors, reduced to "Welcome to my mighty ship" guy.

I actually thought Poseidon looked great.

Considering the major talent involved (Kurt Russell, Richard Dreyfuss, Director Wolfgang Peterson etc..), I think it will turn out to be a blocbuster. Posted Image
It's gonna be a hell of a ride. I'm ready. .

"The Hills Have Eyes" opens in March, I believe. I've seen a poster at my local theater, but I haven't seen a trailer yet.

The remake of The Omen, Omen 666, opens on 06/06/06. And yes, it's a Tuesday(!). Cheers.

This is the only upcoming remake that I plan on ever seeing. The original film is a true classic, certainly the best thing Wes Craven has ever done, and while it doesn't need a remake in the least, I'll watch anything Alexandre Aja does.

The Black Christmas and The Hitcher remakes are the ones that really boil my blood, as the original films are my two favorite horror films. I'd bet anything that the braindead masses will say the Black Christmas remake is a ripoff of the When a Stranger Calls remake too.

Neither film in the original post are exactly "original" themselves so another version won't kill anyone.

As Justin said, THE HILLS HAVE EYES is one of my favorite movies of all time but I'm really looking forward to the remake. Even if it's one of the worst films of the year it'll still be miles better than the horrid sequel, which really shouldn't have been made.

I thought the exact same thing about Black Christmas and When a Stranger Calls, knowing both would be remade.

I think The Hills Have Eyes is Craven's second best film after A Nightmare on Elm Street. I'm not exactly enthusiastic about a remake, but I'll go see it because I always give remakes a chance. I've only really despised two from the past two years: Amityville Horror and The Fog.

So which classic Horror movies fro 70's and 80's are left to be remade:

1)Halloween. I hope they don't remake it, but with a cool name and music an October opening could be profitable and irresistible to studios.

2)Friday the 13th. Might be redundant with franchise still going with Jason vs Freddy and Jason X

3)Nightmare on elm street. Same as above.

4)Evil Dead. I read rumors a remake is in the works but I don't know for sure.

5)The Exorcist. Sort of redone with Emily Rose.

6)Jaws. Sort of redone with Deep Blue Sea , Open Water and others.

7)An American Werewolf. They might not redo it with American Werewolf in Paris done recently.

8)Shinning. Could be a moneymaker But it'll never top Kubrick.

9)Wickerman. I heard it's being done with Nic Cage.

10)The Thing. I haven't heard anything

Evil Dead remake isn't happening, last I heard. And of all those movies you listed, I would bet Halloween gets the treatment first, because there's already been rumblings. I just saw the original Nightmare on my local college campus, and even though I've probably seen it a 100 times, it still strikes me as one of the greatest horror films of all time, so I would really be upset at a remake. No one can play Freddy except Robert Englund.


I would add "Phantasm" to that list, too. I wouldn't be surprised to see a remake. And "Pumpkinhead."

Getting back to "The Hills Have Eyes," I just realized that the director of the remake directed "High Tension," so I'm a little more interested. The first half of that film, before
the big twist
has some of the most suspensful sequences I've seen in a while, and the original "Hills" thrives off of suspense. So we'll see.

That reminds me...I think they're doing a remake of "The Eye," a pretty good Japanese horror movie.

The Eye was actually Hong Kong/Thailand, but, yeah, there's a US version in the works.

Yesterday, I read in a copy of Rolling Stone magazine (from a few months ago) that LL Cool J has obtained the rights to remake Fatal Attraction for the first film in a contract he recently signed with Lion's Gate.

What? No mention of Scorsese's remake of "Infernal Affairs"? Just saw the original, and thought it was an interesting movie, but has potential to be even better.

the Eye dvd has a blurb on it that says tom cruise has the rights to an american version of that one.

the thing is already a remake so if they do that again is it still a remake?

That's right. I was thinking Japan because so many other movies like "The Ring" and "The Grudge" are originally Japanese.
