I can’t do anything about movies that are already being remade and shouldn’t be, ever, but boy have I got a bone to pick with some movies that shouldn’t be remade, and aren’t completely legit yet. It’s bad enough that so many classics get ruined with a revamp, but now, there are remakes being made about movies that shouldn’t have been made in the first place. Why? Why?
1. An American Werewolf in London
Price: $11.59 at amazon.com
This is a movie that shouldn’t be remade because they kind of tried it before. Did anyone see An American Werewolf in Paris? No? That’s because it was awful. The premise was good, and I love that guy who starred in it, but to do it now … you know it’s just going to be a flick full of Jacob Black type werewolves. Which I guess some people will enjoy, so yeah, I bet it gets done.
Price: $23.99 at amazon.com
This would just be awful. I don’t even have anything to say besides that. Dune is perfect the way it is and it needs to stay that way. But I bet they’ll say they’re just “reinterpreting” it, do it anyway, and challenge the wrath of goodness knows how many Dune fans.
3. Fright Night
Price: $10.99 at amazon.com
I saw this when it was first came out on VHS (haha). My cousin let me do it, and boy were my parents mad! So was I, because it was traumatizing. So was the sequel; I couldn’t eat spaghetti for years after seeing that. The reason I hate to see this remade is because it’s going to turn into Twilight. That’s not a jab, but everyone’s going to be feeding off the franchise, thinking they can get rich.
