Following up on our list of best horror remakes, guest blogger Richard has bitten the bullet and sat through some of the worst. Reading this blog may be cause for a little sympathetic squirming; still, at least you’ll never have to feel the real pain of seeing a classic defiled. Tedium. Silliness. Irrelevance – these films have em all!
Wes Craven: Two words that by their associative powers alone, can conjure inimitable phantasmagoric visions from which you cannot avert your eyes, but in the dead of sleepless night, so desperately wish you had.

The horror-savvy amongst you lot will be aware that we revealed the terrifying new poster for the horror remake last week.

We can only assume he was frustrated in his quest to find hand cream.
Cover your eyes! The terrifying new poster for the A Nightmare on Elm Street remake proclaims that we’ll “never sleep again” and we here at Best for Film are genuinely quaking in our boots at the prospect. The slasher series, which spawned such classic cult movies as A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and Freddy vs. Jason, is being revived yet again. Spooky.
