Wrapping up the Reimagining

So here we are, one month and ten horror reimaginings later and what have we learned? In the simplest of statements:

Most of these films are not worth your time, I watched them so you don't have to.

I guess if I had to rank then in order of watchability it would go as follows

Reimaginings that I would consider good movies
1. Dawn of the Dead (2004)
2. Fright Night (2011)
3. Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

Reimaginings that may appeal to horror fans
4. Halloween (2007)
5. Last House on the Left (2009)
6. The Thing (2011)
7. Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

Reimaginings that are not worth your time
8. Prom Night (2008)
9. Friday the 13th (2009)
10. Halloween II (2009)

In the end, can I say watching these films was worth my time? I guess. It gave me lots to talk to all of you about, and now when I hear a thirteen-year-old explain to me how awesome that new Friday the 13th film was, I can shake my head and smile.

Happy Halloween Everyone!!!
