Remakes are some of the most fickle films to ever grace cinema screens. Often coming far too soon or are based on films far too well-loved to hit home with intended audiences, they're brushed aside as some of the worst offenders when it boils down to what people actually want to see.
It's true that sometimes, filmmakers can absolutely recapture the magic and offer a beautifully updated homage to the original, but sometimes Psycho 1990 happens and people are right to be angry. No one wants Psycho 1990.
As time is as inescapable as Scarlett Johannesson in an inappropriate starring role, remakes become a great way of looking back on excellent movies and bringing them back to the conversation in new and innovative ways - and 2019 in particular has loaded up on the good, the bad, and the downright weird.
Whether it's The Fly and The Thing level good, or One Missed Call and The Haunting level bad (and you know exactly which ones I mean here without me specifying a year), the horror community has some serious nuts taking on most of these titles. As exciting as it is to see some classics brought back into the fold: Just don't f*ck it up.
