I never knew about Weekend at Bernie's being a remake, that's hilarious. There are a hundred more you could list as well. (A Fistful of Dollars/Yojimbo)

The title should (more accurately) be "Foreign Films, Inferior American Counterparts".

Funny Games (2007) is realised by the same director: Michael Haneke.
you can add also Let Me In (2010), Dinner for Schmucks (2010)
