Halloween (2007)
Screws up the original by turning into an vulgar, offensive Gore Movie while also destroying the mystique of Michael Meyers. If you watch some of the "Behind the scenes" interviews with Rob, he often states that the original was "poor"; and that his Halloween version is "better" than Carpenter's (which is insulting i might add). Really? While the first half of this atrocious film is an annoying prequel featuring an young redneck Michael Meyers talk (!) and the second half is a rushed remake with unlikeable characters.

Prom Night (2008)
While the original was a R-Rated slasher, the Remake is a PG-13 toned down Slasher. And to add Insult to injury: The movie doesn't even know what it wants to be-is it a Horror Movie, a High School Drama or both?
But it doesn't matter what it is in the end: It's boring.

When you add the Fact that Director Samuel Bayer didn't want to make this movie and just said yes after Mr. Bay begged him and promised him that this movie will open up a career for him, then i guess its not surprising that this movie turned out as bland and lame as it is.
Rooney Mara who played the lead, was so frustrated that she almost quit acting after this movie and it really shows. Her performance is completely off.
Also Jackie Earle Haley is no Robert Englund...so why was this movie made? Oh yeah...Money.

Boring, lazy and sometimes confusing. While the original had some strong suspense elements the Remake tosses that all away in favor of...

...Highschool Drama.

Painful to watch and sometimes really stupid, you might skip this one.

Psycho (1998)
An completely unnecessary Remake, mostly because it's a shot-for-shot Remake with only slight tweaks (Norman Bates is now a pervert) and nothing new that adds up to the source material, did we really need this movie?

The Hitcher (2007)
You had Sean Bean. YOU HAD SEAN BEAN! And still you made a Movie where there is no Suspense and the villain is lame. The original was by no means a awesome Movie, but it was entertaining and Rutger Hauer as the Hitcher was intimidating but this movie was bland and dumb.

The first of many Platinum Dunes Remakes on this List.
The original was actually based off a...uhm...true story, the Remake just ignores as many parts of the Story in favor of horrible original Ideas and - surprise - Gore.

Ryan Reynolds can't act as well as well as Melissa George but what did you expect?

Pulse (2006)
While the original gave us an interesting story about the internet turning us into antisocial "dead people", the Remake just throws that right away and tries to make us believe that ghosts haunting the internet and can be downloaded from it.
Yeah...about that...

Freakshow (2007)
While the original was more of a drama with horror elements, the extremely loseley remake just throws everything out of the window and just feed it's audience a slow paced and stupid sleazy movie, that for the first 60 Minutes is nothing but a softcore-porn with something like a story and for the last 15 Minutes was a brutal and disgusting gore movie that tries to replicate the shocking end of the original. Which it kinda achieves, but in the wrong way. Just go and watch the 1932 Original. Unless you like Tits and Gore.

House of Wax (2005)
When People only remember that Paris Hilton dies in your movie, you know you did something wrong.

Adding your own ideas to the classic can work, but this movie decides to ignore everything and just pulls off a standard slasher giving the name of the original Movie. And thats...just stupid.
