Live Poll: The Worst Horror Movie Remakes

There has been way too many awful and unneccesary remakes of horror movies, but the question is, which one butchered the original the most and should be thrown in an enternal dumbster fire?

I like how the suggestion has both panned and acclaimed remakes: subjectivity is of great appeal when it comes to polls.

FYC:
The Hitcher (2007)

Thanks! I'll add it to the list, saw it years ago and didn't realize it was a remake

Hi Henri and welcome to the poll board. : )

'Good poll and good list! It's also constructed really well, which is really impressive for a first poll.
 I'd probably vote for either 'The Hitcher' or 'Wicker Man.'

May I suggest three small edits to the intro? ('edits below in bold)

There have been way too many awful and unneccesary remakes of horror movies, but the question is, which one butchered the original the most and should be thrown in an eternal dumpster fire?

(has > have)
(enternal > eternal)
(dumpster > dumpster)

Henri,

Thank you making the corrections.

By the way, English is the second language for many of the poll authors. The other poll authors and I do our best to help each other improve the quality of polls.

Either The Ring or The Grudge - both lousy American remakes of brilliant Japanese originals

It the theatrical movie isn't a remake of It the tv mini-series. It shouldn't be on there. It's like saying The Nutcracker tv movie is a remake of The Nutcracker theatrical movie...
