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.
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.”
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.
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.
The new Evil Dead redband trailer is here. Warning - this clip is most definitely NSFW.
Here are some films you might not be paying attention to yet.
MGM and Screen Gems recently released a pair of photographs from the remake of the 1976 dramatic horror, Carrie.
Carrie was the first movie adaptation of a Stephen King story, and it’s still one of the best.
It seems like every horror movie is being remade these days, from classics such as Carrie to the low budget sleazo stuff like Mother's Day and I Spit On Your Grave.
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.
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.
