Gravity Beats Out Carrie and Julian Assange

With so many remakes and reboots, it’s wonderful to see an actual original movie doing so well. In fact, Gravity is the #1 movie in the country for three weeks now, and it has stood its ground very easily against the remake of Carrie, and the Julian Assange biopic The Fifth Estate, which was a big flop.

Why Was Carrie Remade Again?

Today is a day many horror fans have been dreading for a long time: The release date of the remake of Carrie. We at TGD are not fans of the endless conveyor belt of horror remakes, and we absolutely put Carrie in the category of, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” 

Horror Still Number One at the Box Office

As a big horror fan, it’s great to see the genre is still doing well, even if the movies these days leave a lot to be desired. While the genre has always had big peaks and valleys, right now it’s still on top at the box office, as Insidious 2 has proven. 

Horror is back, big time

As a long time horror fan, it’s great to see that the genre is back on top with the remake of Evil Dead coming in at #1 this weekend on the box office charts with a $26 million take.

Sam Raimi to produce Poltergeist remake

Being a big horror fan myself, I love the classics just as they are, and wish somebody in Hollywood would get to work on doing something original.

Behind the Carrie remake

A while back I read something about Carrie being rebooted, but the story had already been remade for television and the stage, so I didn’t pay much attention to the report.
