I would like a remake of the polterguist series, as long as they keep some parts of it kinda reminisant of the originals. I hate when they make remake and just use the same plot instead of keeping the originality of it.

Even more then a reamke of the polturgiests I would like a new instalment set when the main character (BethAnn or something like that) is a teen. As long as they make it more like number one. ( Then again they may be afraid of the curse).
It doesnt matter if you believe. The only thing that matters is if "They" believe.

I don't really like remake movies, but I'm looking forwards to Friday the 13th remake. I just hope they won't ruin a good movie.

I didn’t care for the recent remake of 13 Ghosts, but I love the original. I would like to see a director/producer like Mel Gibson run with that... the guy is a master producer. I thought The Passion of the Christ was the most intense and disturbing movie I ever saw. There were widespread reports of people fainting and buggin out in the theaters, and I believe I read at least one person had a heart attack. I think if he can do that with a story about Jesus... if he did The Exorcist they’d have to station EMS crews in the lobbies...




I would like to point out that this was most likely how it was during the crucifixion. Most of the movies I've seen regarding Christ's last days only sugar coat the story. The pain and suffering was what happened and it wasn't pretty.


One of my favorite horror movies is "Christine", I would like to see a remake. Maybe follow the storyline of the book a bit closer. John Carpenter is excellent and I'd like to see him take on the "new" project. I really don't like movies that overuse CGI. If I wanted to watch a cartoon, then I'd watch one.
Ah. Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT... NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY... NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I'm qualified? --BeetlejuiceI'm the ghost with the most, babe.--BeetlejuiceWe've come for your daughter Chuck--Beetlejuice

carpenter is making two new movies. L.A. gothic, with rumors of kurt russell playing a vengeful priest. and a movie called the prince, not to sure what it will be about or who is rumored. cant wait though.

I've known for a while this is coming out. I finally saw previews a couple weeks ago....NOT IMPRESSED. If they screw this one up there is no hope. Though your right, they shouldn't have tried in the first place

I absolutely loved "The Others", but as far as remakes go, I would like to have seen "The Shining" remade with Heath Ledger playing Jack Nicholson's role. Sadly, Heath has passed and his performance as the joker leaves him on top of Nicholson IMHO.

Other movies, hmm...The Exorcist would top my list!

I feel the same way... Hello?! Johnny Depp (sorry but he is just really.... YUM, and my hormone riddled young adult brain can't get past that)... And you just don't mess with a Wes Craven... Except I did watch the remake of "The Hills Have Eyes" last night and thought that was mucho better than the original (not like that was a hard feat... The original is CHEESEY!).
Love life.
