Horror Remakes ~ After the Cinema

May 8, 2023 – 10:40 am

Our TOP 10 Best this time will focus on a theme that is very problematic.

It is no secret that I was a real "purist", never particularly liked the "remakes" of horror films. In fact, there were times when I wondered why these films are so susceptible to a "recycling". Recycling this that, in general, was downright bad.Photobucket The idea seems to be that patent is that Hollywood is running out of ideas. And there are movies that are untouchable and should remain so.Photobucket Make a TOP of the worst "remakes" would be an impossible task, because the list would be endless. But over time, I began to be more receptive to "remakes" and to admit that some showed to be necessary.Photobucket Incidentally, each shown to be exceptionally good.

I remind you again that this list is entirely subjective. Regarding the images, which are black and white are referring to the original films, and those are the colors are those of remakes. Here then, my TOP 10 of "remakes" of horror films, ie, the "remakes" that, in my opinion, have achieved an excellent level, and, perhaps, easily assimilated to the original film.
Share with us your opinion!

10. Cape Fear (1991)

The remake of Martin Scorsese's 1962 film is one of those that simply resulted, surpassing the original in quality. It's a thriller that mixes elements of horror and suspense in a plot such that only want to get to the end of the movie to see how it ends! It is the typical formula of the early 90s, and has Robert De Niro at his best, making even the distinguishing factor between the two films. De Niro lifts "Cape Fear" to a monumental level with his interpretation of Max Cady.


9. The Last House on the Left (2009)

Like the original film, this is also brutal and visceral. There is, of course, those movies visually easy to endure. This remake of the classic Wes Craven (1972) is very relevant because, like the original, in the midst of violence exacerbated presented to us, we managed to hold them to the same screen, derived from intense and inevitable link to us allowed to create characters. We follow a true story of vengeance that leaves no one indifferent. For me it was the biggest surprises of 2009 not be seen waiting to have enjoyed it as much as actually liked. This is because the original was hugely controversial and has become a cult film, and the remake match the level achieved.

8. Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)

The film Francis Ford Coppola 1992 can be of my favorite horror films of all time, because it is unusual and arguably the most solid adaptation of Bram Stoker's work. Coppola managed to create a film dark and gothic, assisted with ultimate romance, and that's what makes it unusual and exciting. Many may not consider it as a "remake", depending also from the perspective that they have in relation to the Dracula films. In my opinion, this film surpasses points to the 1931 film, as Gary Oldman's interpretation absolutely thunderous that (excuse the boldness) Bela Lugosi could never do.

Japanese historical films of the 'classic' age

Seem to me to set the 'gold standard' for historical authenticity (this would be films from around the 20's to the 70's, filmmakers like Mizoguchi, Kurosawa, Immamura among the most famous but there are many others).
People like Mizoguchi had a mania for historical accuracy with sets, costumes and so on. In most 'prestigious' japanese historical films, one will never see a man and a woman ki...l sorts of rubbishy commercial Japanese films which have thrown historical accuracy to the winds as is common with american films- but as they do not generally get exported & subtitled for US consumptions, I haven't seen them!
Can't say I'm 'up' on recent Japanese films - their film industry seems to be a shadow of its former self - with most of the films getting exported being horror films

Glad to see...

There's one more of us.
Good to hear that what is happening in the series in the Pacific Theater is what your friend said happened too.
I also like the 'unbiased' way in which they are delivering this Doc. For example, when the Army and Marines went to overtake Okinawa they were firing on the island at night because they saw figures on the island moving; thinking that it was the Japanese trying to surprise them in the morning. When the US forces arrived the next morning they found out, to their horror, that it was the natives on Okinawa that were trying to escape off the island the night before
