Horror Remakes That Are Better Than The Originals
Bram Stoker's Dracula
"Bram Stoker's Dracula" is a powerhouse of lust, horror, tragedy, stunning costume design, and a star cast. From portraying Dracula’s origin story all the way to his attempts at reclaiming his reincarnated love while facing off against Van Helsing, Francis Ford Coppola crafts a true visual masterpiece that stands to this day.
Little Shop of Horrors
Including stunning theatrical-inspired sets of Skid Row, perfectly performed songs, and the masterful puppeteering work of Audrey II, Frank Oz’s rendition is an absolute marvel. There are few movies that could be classified as "perfect films," but 1986's "Little Shop of Horrors" is absolutely one of them.
The Crazies (2010)
Breck Eisner's remake of George A. Romero’s 1973 “The Crazies” is believable and creepy with just the right amount of suspense. Eisner’s spare, widescreen compositions conjure a slow-mounting sense of dread, while his set pieces, particularly the nursery sequence, are terrifyingly taut.
It (2017)
Being one of the greatest Stephen King adaptations ever made, Andy Muschietti’s “It” does justice to its source material. From Bill Skarsgård’s stellar performance as Pennywise the Clown to the very first scene where Georgie is brutally pulled into the storm drain, “It” shattered expectations and box office records.
The Thing (1982)
John Carpenter's "The Thing" is superior to its 1951 counterpart in many ways, such as the alien creature’s shapeshifting abilities which add to the tension and paranoia among the characters. Carpenter’s remake also has an added scare and grotesqueness unlike the original film's unintentional hilarity created by its campy nature.
