This thread got me thinking of why I am so done with the reboot/remake. It is tired! I was pretty jacked a few years ago about the remakes because
well better effects, better acting etc. But often they either leave the original story behind (which is always more superior) or they lack the actors
who made it shine.
Let's look at some facts...
Rotten Tomatoes will show the way! Because some how now somehow the remake has 7.7 stars on IMDB and it isn't even out? The Smell of Hype reeks...lol
this thread is even a part of that hype and the more I type EVIL DEAD the more ads show up! LOL OMG! UGH!
Evil Dead (original) holds a 100% rating ONE HUNDRED flipping percent! LOL
EDII 98% WOW...not bad for a sequel (which was actually a rebootish/sequel)
Now just Genre in an original vs. Remake show down Here are some of my all time top Favorites and the far crappier remakes!
Halloween (Original) 94%
Halloween (2007) 25%
Friday the 13th (Original) 59%
Friday the 13th (2009) 25%
The Omen (1976) 85%
The Omen (2006) 27%
The Fog (1980) 68%
The Fog (2005) 4% UGH I was so mad after taking a date to this one!
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) 95%
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) 15%
Day of the Dead (1985) 81%
Day of the Dead (2007) 14%
Have I made my point?
I see a trend. But everyone else including Hollywood can't...And now they make re-boots every couple of years??? WTF??
I am betting the re-boot... is at worse around 25% because of who is involved! At best It won't live up to the HYPE they have created and I predict
will still be a stinker around 50%. Meaning you disappointed a lot of the original fans!
And fine I admit until it comes out and I hear from my Brother-in-law who is a Horror/Bruce Campbell fanatic, I will hold off seeing it unless he
loved it as I just can't take the gore anymore...But in the trailer I saw none of that insane humor or shotguns and chainsaws.
