    The Exorcist I guess because it's the best movie up there and I am curious to see what people could possibly think they could do to improve upon it.

    Just like Halloween this year, I'm sure it will be no where near as great as the original. There is a reason why they're called classics.

    I guess Hollywood really is running out of original ideas.

    Seriously, half of the ones you put up there were only rumors and hearsay.

    Here is my answer though

    Day of the Dead deserves a remake. The original movie was suppose to be a tour de force of the zombie genre. An epic film, that was, unfortunately cut due to budgetary and censorship concerns. It became the most bloody and disgusting of the series, but lacked any storyline or interesting character arcs to keep it above the other three. However, after seeing the laughable trailer, I'm not sure what we are getting is remotely going to fix the originals setbacks.

    The Day the Earth Stood Still and consequently War of the Worlds are films that were epic and well done, but lacked the effects to do what they really wanted. I could stand remakes.

    The Illustrated Man sucked IMO, it's one of my favorite unintentional comedies. You can remake it if you wish.

    It's funny, most movies that get remade are horror films. I think it's mostly because the ideas are hard to replicate without stepping on someone else's toes. I mean how exactly would someone make a zombie film these days without at least referencing George A Romero. It's damn hard, that's for sure.

    The Changeling is the only one I'll see.

    It's written by one of my favorite writers, J. Michael Straczynski, and directed by Clint Eastwood.

    I normally don't like remakes. But the only one I look forward to on the list is "Enter the Dragon." It's one of my all time favorite movies and I couldn't believe there is going to be a remake. So I look forward to how it turns out.

    Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell have both said they will do an Evil Dead 4, The Evil Dead, the "remake", was supposed to be a storyline close to the original but without the Ash character. It was abandoned due to negative feedback.
