Even in the midst of this remake and reboot-friendly era, a lot of horror movies are just waiting to be remade — and they could be genuinely spectacular. Keep your mind open and your grumblings to a minimum, because here's a look at some horror movies that legitimately deserve a remake.
Ever since its release in 1997, this Paul W.S. Anderson space chiller has divided audiences over whether it's a good time or one hell of a terrible movie. One thing everyone can agree on is that the film, in which a space crew investigates an abandoned ship only to discover it may be a gateway to hell, is a product of its time which hasn't exactly aged well. In its defense, it also suffered a troubled production history that heavily impacted the final cut.
As fans of the film will tell you, this visceral sci-fi-horror outing was given a preposterously tight post-production deadline on top of studio demands for excessive edits. Apparently, this deeply affected the pacing and visual effects of the theatrical cut, and it also meant some of the film's scariest and goriest set pieces were scrapped. The film's notorious lost footage was unwisely packaged off to a Transylvanian salt mine and the resulting damage was apparently irrevocable.
In 2019, it was reported that Adam Wingard is developing a TV adaptation of Event Horizon, which could be great, as long as it delivers all the vital unseen moments and plot development that were sadly scrapped from the original. Event Horizon deserves a remake that can finally fulfill the gnarly, nasty vision that neither Anderson nor the movie's audience ever got to see.
This stylish 1983 horror movie from director Tony Scott has it all — and still makes for a great, if quaint, viewing experience. The Hunger uses '80s goth and New Wave culture as its backdrop to explore a story that revolves around addiction, sexual politics, and the anguish of aging. The Hunger follows a vampire named Miriam who takes lovers that she turns into vampires. But there's a catch: While she lives forever, never aging, her vampiric lovers grow old and frail while forced to subsist on human blood. Keep watching the video to see more horror movies that deserve a remake!
