One more note. Even though I think both The Funhouse and The Legend of Hell house are decent horror films,they can both be remade,not because they were made then and have become dated but because they can be done better overall from a story standpoint.

The Black Cat would be the best for a remake as far as I'm concerned.  Everything else is either too iconic or has had other knock-offs done.  Movies I would like to see a decent remake of would be:  Burnt Offerings, From Beyond, Let's Scare Jessica to Death, Eaten Alive, The Sentinal (not the Michael Douglas one) Suspiria, And several Herschel Gordon Lewis flicks such as 2 Thousand Maniacs or Bloodfeast

There are plenty of good Lovecraft films. "The Resurrected", "Masters of Horror: Dreams in the Witch House", "Dagon" not to mention the DVD's put out by the HPL Historical Society. Del Toro is suppose do "At the Mountains of Madness" as soon as he amasses the clout to do it by the book without studio interference

 Not sure if they ever remade 39 Steps by Hitchcock, but that might be interesting. Good list.

Reanimator was written by Lovecraft to be a humorous horror tale.  To play it straight would be against the spirit of the original story.

I would love to see "From Beyond" re-made. That was a classic. That and "Re-animator"

They had a sequel of sorts for Rosemarys Baby, Whatever Happened to Rosemarys Baby. It was a made for tv feature, and was very bad.

I would love too see a sequel for The Night Stalker, The original scared me too death when I was a kid. I had too sleep with the light on for about a week or so. Especially when Atwater openned the door snarling, ect. I was like 9 years old then. My dad would ask me, why watch it if your scared. I guess I liked being scared at the time. Also if you look at the Youtube above. On 2:15 there was suppost too be no shadows ect., around the body. Yet there were the cameramens ect. Even the best horror movies can have a blooper. Overall, great memories.

There was an episode of MIAMI VICE, during season 4, episode 4.16 Honor Among Thieves, which has a plot similar to M. 

A criminal consortium , in which Crockett and Tubbs are working undercover, starts it's own hunt for a serial child killer who kills young girls by injecting them with the mobs cocaine, whch is bringing unwanted attention from local law enforcement and threatens to expose Crockett and Tubbs. The killer also dresses up his victims like dolls after killing them.

Here's the twist **spoiler**..the killer is one of them and after being found out, the mob decides to hold its own trial with the mob boss as the prosecuter and Crockett providing the defense!

"M" is perfect just the way it is, any remake would be an abomination. I would suspect it would be worse than the horrible horrible horrible remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. I thank the Maker constantly that Jay-Z's remake of Warriors and the Steven Speilberg/Will Smith Old Boy got canceled.  Some stories are told in a specific setting and any altering or updating spoil the original vision. Hollywood should feel free to rip off and dumb down some of these classic stories but please change the name so not to spoil the original. Take for example Dangerous Liaisons and Cruel Intentions, each film stands on it's own and appeals to different audiences.

Since LittleNell1824 mentioned Dean Koontz I'd like to see a remake of Watchers that had something to do with the book.

M already has been remade once.  The remake has been forgotten.
