So many good movies from my youth could benefit from a remake. These 5 films are stellar in their own right but a little polish and an update would resuscitate these classics and bring them back to the forefront of the horror genre again. No spoilers in this list so read on!
The Fury (1978)
Directed by Brian De Palma and starring Kirk Douglas this movie about telekinesis and the consequences of pushing a person to far. A mans son is kidnapped due to his telekinetic powers. What they didn't realize was they couldn't control him and so ensues the tragedy. Terrifying and sad at the same time, a fresh modern take on this film would great.
This House Possessed (1981)
Written by David Levinson and starring Parker Stevenson. A movie about a house that has a mind of it's own. Quiet and creepy this movie provides it's viewer with an uneasy feeling that they just can't shake. It would be great to see a modern up to date re-make.
Written by H.P. Lovecraft and starring Jeffrey Combs. Written by one of horrors most beloved writers, this film pushed the limit with it's 1985 release. A movie with no boundaries and massive appeal, a reboot would be awesome and even better with Combs in the lead again.
Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)
Written by Clive Barker and starring Doug Bradley. Although this movie still holds up and still has an ick factor of a 1,000 a good remake would do justice to this movie. Starring Doug Bradley as Pinhead of course!
Written and Directed by Don Coscarelli. A movie about a tall man and a graveyard that will keep you from sleeping at night. Another movie that still holds up but would certainly benefit from a modern touch, even better if Angus Scrimm could revise his role as The Tall Man.
So that's my list of 5 stellar movies that should be brought back into the forefront of horror. These movies scared the crap out of me as a child and with a li'l tweaking they could bring that same fear to the younger generation of horror buffs... Do you agree?
