As promised, there will be quite a few Halloween related posts coming up here in the next week to celebrate the holiday and the thirtieth anniversary of John Carpenter’s legendary film. I thought it might be fun to also have one more semi-related poll and, with the remake of Friday the 13th coming soon, the seventies horrors remakes that have filled our theaters in the past decade seemed like a pretty good subject.
The poll is simple. I have chosen ten of the more high profile remakes of seventies classics that have been released in the past decade for the poll. Simply pick your favorites and ignore the ones you can’t stand. I think a few of these are really solid films in their own right, while some are okay, and some are just plain garbage so the results should be interesting.
I only focused on remakes of American films, and by only picking ten I obviously left out some, but this will hopefully prove an interesting poll to close out October with. Enjoy and vote away…
