Horror remakes you would like to see made

I would like to see Motel Hell, Silent Night Deadly Night or Christmas Evil( I really want a new killer santa claus movie), Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and Basket Case. Also this is more sci-fi but I really would like to see a new Robocop and I'm still waiting for a Robocop vs. Terminator movie. Why can't they make this? They made Freddy vs Jason and Alien vs. Predator this would be the only big one left.

NO remakes!

And in the case of "Basket Case", I love the fact that it looks like it was made on a $20 budget. All these remakes try to modernize things with slick production values and you lose the character of the film.

Sorry... not a fan of remakes.

Remakes don't hurt the original, the original will always be there. Its just a new perspective on the story. Besides if anything remakes help the originals because most ppl have never heard of most of the movies they are remaking now. After they see the remake they start to wonder about the original and check it out.

Well I think one comes to mind, Death Valley. The film had a cool twist but gave it away far too soon.

And Child's Play doesn't deserve a remake but in the same vein, I would have preferred the "Did Andy do it" angle to last longer with the audience.

80's Movies (because they're going to anyway)
CHUD
Critters
Society same story, but updated

Asian Movies
Stacy with Catholic school girls
Wild Zero this would almost definitely suck though

Movie versions
Children of the Stones
Count Duckula
Invader Zim
MPD Psycho

misc.
Cars That Ate Paris this time with killer cars that eat people in Paris.
Equinox Sam Raimi should direct
The Ghost and Mr Chicken just because
Planet of the Vampires with a big budget
Spider Baby same story and humor but much more perverse and violent this time
A Thief in the Night to warp impressionable young would-be Christians

I think they should just make new horror movies and remake them at the same time with a different, less experienced director.

But seriously, The Children could stand a reboot. Great movie but it could be so much scarier/ gorier/ etc.

Not a horror film per se, but I'd be curious to see a remake of Jaws. I know it's blasphemus (sp?), but I think it could be action-packed and terrifying.

The only things you'd have to change would be the premise and the title.

I didn't say the original wasn't, but let's face it, stunts and f/x have made leaps and bounds in 33 years, and a remake could have a lot of fun with today's technology and the audience's appetite for action set-pieces.

Yes, but more often you'll have the young teens check out the original, and pass on it in favor for the hot young faces, and rampant gore.
