In the movie industry, remakes aren’t a new thing. In today’s era of rehashing ideas, it shouldn’t be shocking to see “reboots” of idea that was successful or is nostalgic.
Yet, when we checked out this gallery of horror movie posters from originals and their copycats, we discovered some names we didn’t expect to see. Some horror flicks we thought were originals, weren’t. For example, you’ve probably seen 2007’s screamworthy The Hills HaveEyes…
…but have you seen the creepy 1977 original from horror master Wes Craven?
For others, we has seen the originals, like the 1984 iconic Stephen King tale Children of the Corn, but had no clue that the story had been rebooted for a 2009 Made-for-TV movie (which isn’t surprising considering the latter version recieved a rating of 17% on Rotten Tomatoes.)
So check out the awesome gallery of horror movie remake posters from Horror Society, and tell us – which remake is your favourite? Which original was scarier than the second try? Which reboot gave your more nightmares than it’s predecessor?
