    With an Evil Dead remake coming this year

    It looks good and promising since it's from series creator Sam Raimi and made by a fan of the original plus they stated no CGI is used but old fashioned special effects which sounds great.

    Sometimes a good horror remake is hard to find as there can be an occasional gem but sometimes a dozen misfires that can only tarnish the legacy of the original, Moviefone has made this unique article which is advice to the filmmakers and studios out there on how to do a good horror movie remake:
    http://blog.moviefone.com/2011/08/18...horror-remake/

    Who agrees with the rules, worst culprits and best examples? i did liked Halloween and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I agree with Sarah on the comments that on part 5 the last 2 examples on "Stay away from torture porn" don't make sense as the original 1972 and 1978 versions of Last House on The Left and I Spit on Your Grave were originally torture porn films and were marketed as shocking violent exploitation movies yet still are torture porn films and that if you look through the gore of the remakes they are both decent as i agree.

    Who thinks on number 8 "Honor the original" they should had also added Night of the Living Dead 1990, Cat People (1982), Cape Fear (1990) and Nosferatu (1922) on there as they fall in this rule.

    The Thing (1982) was NOT a remake it's a misconception, it was another adaptation of John Campbell's 1938 novella "Who Goes There" which was previously adapted before in 1951 and Carpenter's adaptation is more faithful to the original story.

    I'm literally praying for the upcoming remake of "Alice, Sweet Alice" to be a quality one. heheh I saw the trailer for the new Evil Dead a couple weeks back on FB and it looked pretty good based on what I saw. Looked pretty intense.

    Theres no way I am watching this movie.

    I saw the red ban trailer...no way...no way...

    I cannot believe I made it through the trailer. They changed the character plot line, but the overall theme is there...book of the dead..evil spirits in a wooden camp...demon girl in cellar.

    The first one still freaks me out a bit, let alone with all the effects in this one!

    So because they are doing something different, you don't want to see it?
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    Looks suitably violent and twisted. I've got high hopes for this one.

    The little red haired girl from Suburgatory is in it.

    The subject matter freaks me out though. I am also still creeped out by what I remember of the original, people tell me it is campy and funny but I haven't tried to watch it as an adult.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    A red ban trailer is rated R. Not a green ban trailer. The color you see before the trailer begins.

    In seeing the red ban trailer is was, as others have said, brutal. Like tounges getting cut in half.

    I will not be seeing this movie beacuse, as I have said, the orignial still freaks me out. There is no way with the added effects that I could handle it.

    The mention of it still being overall the same, with a varience in the character plot was simply a statement.

    I LOVED these movies about 7 years ago...now...no way.
