I'm sure you horror buffs have already heard: Freddy is getting another movie. In light of this news, I thought of a few other horror titles that I believe deserve a reboot.

1. Candyman (1992)

This film is about a murderous soul, with a hook for a hand, who is unknowingly summoned by a skeptic grad student researching the monster's myth. Even though that storyline is used by a lot of horror films today, you have to admit that the killer in this one wasn't your ordinary slasher. Candyman is a classic, and could definitely use a reboot to bring back the fear we all felt when our older siblings said his name five times into the mirror.

2. Society (1989)

To call this movie odd would be an understatement. It's about a Beverly Hills teen who discovers that his parents are a part of a gruesome orgy cult for the social elite. The fact that there are more conspiracies in this day and age about things like this going on is why I think it deserves a reboot. I love conspiracy movies, and they don't need to do a whole lot beyond our imagination. There were a lot of special effects needed to make this Indie film, so if it were made within the next few years, could you imagine the horror? It definitely wouldn't be for weak stomachs.

3. Hellraiser (1987)

I actually saw this movie not too long ago, and as soon as I got past the bad acting I really enjoyed it. It's about an unfaithful wife who encounters the zombie of her dead lover. Demons are pursuing him after he escapes their sadomasochistic underworld. If you don't know what that word means, look it up, it's gross. This is another movie that used a lot of special effects, and would look horrifyingly beautiful if it were rebooted. Because of the wonderful special effects that we have access to today, there's no doubt that the reboot would be more grisly than it's predecessor.

4. The Dorm That Dripped Blood (1982)

This horror film is about a group of college students who prepare an old dormitory to be torn down as they're pursued by a crazed killer with a wide range of killing methods, from power drill to industrial steam cooker. I think this movie deserves a reboot because last time I checked, the mystery sub genre of horror is still "in" and relevant. It's a realistic story, and as long as the killing methods differ from your average knife to the chest, then I think it could turn out to be a pretty darn swell reboot.

5. The People Under The Stairs (1991)

Wes Craven, the director of many horror films like Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, and The Hills have Eyes brought us this creepy thriller, further fueling our fears of the unknown. The first time I saw this movie was on basic television and I absolutely loved it. It's about a young boy who breaks into the home of his parents' greedy landlords, and discovers a disturbing scenario where incestuous adult siblings have mutilated a number of boys and have kept them imprisoned under the stairs in their large and creepy house. I'd love to see this masterpiece done again simply because the new technology that we have access to today could shine a whole new light on this horror classic.
