Like many of you, I shudder a bit when I hear that an old classic is being “remade.” We cry, “why can’t it just be left alone?!” Because remakes guarantee an audience…that’s why! Most often the remake doesn’t match up to the original, but every so often we are pleasantly surprised. And once in a very blue moon, we might even see a remake that is actually better than the original!
As these golden remakes are so rare, I did have to do a bit of digging, especially since a few of these are old-school horror classics (not my forte). And to be honest, I was pleased that I had to dig so deep.
Anyway, here is the list. And just so ya know, my interpretation of a “remake” is a film that uses an earlier film as its main source material or source of inspiration.
