    I still like the Frank Langela remake of Dracula that John "Blue Thunder" Badham made in '79, which was like a big budget Hammer remake since it still had the gothic British feel that I didn't really get from Copolla's version.

It's easily the best thing Vampire wise done more recently. IMagine one in this day and age, Drac would be a teen heart throb who hates the idea of drinking blood.
    Agreed on that. I really like the way the movie portrays vampires. The romance part I can take it or leave it.. though it's done wayyyy better than in Twilight. The movie just kicks ass.

    The Assault on Precinct 13 remake was pretty worthless I thought. I saw it once in the theater and don't want to watch it ever again. It doesn't come anywhere close to Carpenter's film.

    Agreed. It was awful. All that effort and money was spent trying to make it relevant and more serious than the original but all it did was make it less interesting and bloated. As a remake I can honestly say it was a better effort than Carpenter's own attempt with Ghosts of Mars, but I couldn't bring myself to watch this again any easier. Just the thought of it makes me rather do a double-shot of Nyquil and spend a few hours in a coma instead.

    Good list. I like the inclusion of non-horror.

    The Hitcher was good. The thread is "good remakes" not "award winning remakes". Hitcher was solid. Sean Bean kicks ass and Sophia Bush is hotttt.

    It was awful. Sean Bean isn't even a poor man's Rutger Hauer. He's bizarro Liam Neesen.

    I never saw it. I love A Tale of Two Sisters, but when they started remaking every Asian horror film out there, I didn't bother. Maybe I'll have to give it a chance.

    I've been thinking about good remakes.. while I do bitch about remakes, there's a lot of remakes I do enjoy even more so than the original (even though 99% of the time I still respect the original). However, there's some popular remakes I just can't stand (IE: The Ring, Dawn of the Dead, Let Me In, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, etc). The Ring particularly - I hate that movie with a passion, yet it's on almost every list of the greatest horror films of all time.

    The greatest remakes (IMO):

    The Thing
    (more of a re-adaptation than a remake, though)
    The Blob (only thing I don't like is the government subplot)
    Willard (surpasses the original)
    The Fly and The Fly 2 (great update of 50s classics)
    Village of the Damned (I enjoy this more than the original)
    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (I actually prefer the original, but this is a worthy remake)
    Fright Night 2 (except for the lame ending, I wholly prefer this to the original sequel to Fright Night)
    Nosferatu the Vampyre
    Cat People
    House of Wax (the Vincent Price version, not the shitty one with Paris Hilton)
    Maniac

    There are plenty of bad remakes, but the worst of all time is The Wicker Man (IMO).
