I don't know if it counts as a horror movie but I'd like to see one of "Something Wicked This Way Comes".  I'm sure I can think of others in a bit.

Re-Animator is perfect! No re-make necessary! Silver Bullet needs a re-make though.

Re-Animator is pretty awesome. It doesn't need a remake. And Silver Bullet is still pretty badass. How do you recast someone as awesome as Gary Busey?

I'm a film student and I've actually been working on a sequel to M. I never really thought of a remake because I figure most people hate remakes including myself and I didn't want to contradict myself.

An actor I've always wanted to play the character from M is Paul Reubens. He's actually an excellent actor. And I think it would be creepy to see him play a pedophile.

But really, none of these horror flicks that are remembered as actual scary classic horror films should be remade. Look what happened to The Omen. The remake was a piece of crap.

Hell Yes for Dr. Phibes, but not a reboot. Have it pick up years later after his escapde to find immortality in the original sequel.

Out of all these, only "M" seems fit for a good remake. I could see that being quite a gripping tale in this day and age, and if done by the right people.

The others are kinda on the "meh" side, especially "Freaks." I would never want to see something with that ridiculous a premise on the big screen again. Sounds like HBO's Carnivale gone horribly, horribly wrong.

I have to disagree with "Something Wicked This Way Comes."  I know it's older, and the effects maybe don't hold up to the test of time, but it's still just creepy as hell.  Those Brits know how to get into the mind of their viewers and make them afraid of the dark.  Ok, maybe if Steven Moffat had a try at it, I'd give it a shot.

They remade The Omen?  When did this happen?  I didn't even get a memo.

VTGamehendge, don't even bother with The Omen remake. It's crap. Stick with the original. Much better film!

A sequel to Phibes would rock, but so would an update not just to the original, but to it's sequel as well. Bring on the River of Life!

My sweet Vic..toria... you shall rise again once those who have wronged you have perished!

Actually I always thought Se7en was really an homage to Phibes...

The Funhouse... I remember that one. I read the book first, and the movie was terrible. They had Dean Koontz write the novelization hoping to cash in on the movie, but the book was so much better and outsold the film. Yeah, a remake could be fun.

"M" was a good movie, great idea, death4sale, to have Paul Reubens play the lead.

Rosemary's Baby did have a remake, kind of. There was "Blessed" with Heather Graham. It's not a masterpiece, but I liked it. It went with invitro fertilization instead of rape... You'd have to have a stellar cast to really remake Rosemary's Baby. It was the actors that made the movie there, and the set... the wonderful ordinariness of it all... which is the same reason that The Excorcist was so good.
