In honor of a conversation I had with a fellow horror journalist, Vince Liaguano I have decided to do a series on remakes. I am not a fan of most remakes but we found some common ground on some remakes.
Horror Month, known to laymans as "October" is a perfect opportunity to review and compare movies that were so amazing or groundbreaking in their original format as to warrant people trying to capitalize on their success by either zealously making sequels or creating all new concepts with the originals.
These movies: Rob Zombie's Halloween, The 2009 version of Nightmare on Elm Street, My Bloody Valentine 3D, and The Fog have some heavy competition especially since these movies as originals are some of my favorites. They join reviews that I have already done on The Fog, Fright Night, Evil Dead (2013), Amityville Horror, Carrie, and Texas Chainsaw. If things go as planned I will be at the midnight premier of the Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore remake of Stephen King's Carrie.
Since I already reviewed the remakes of Fright Night, compared the remake and the original of Amityville, and Texas Chainsaw, I will review the original of two, and a popular sequel of the Amityville series.
I will start tonight with Rob Zombie's Halloween. He faces stiff competition because Micheal is my ultimate favorite horror slasher. I hope to get feedback from some of my fellow horror journalists on this.
The first Supernatural Saturday Night Remake Review will go live tonight, October 5th at 5 pm.
