After the new Halloween movie was announced, we couldn't help but remember all of the classic films throughout the decades that should never have been touched in the first place. Halloween was certainly one of them, as the franchise grew to be something completely different from the original 1978 film. There were many other movies that were originally made in the '50s, '60s, '70s, and '80s that received remakes and turned out to be box office flops. There's just something about the original that gets people going and there's something about remakes that grinds people's gears. Here are 10 films that did not deserve a remake. 1. Planet of the Apes 20th Century Fox The original Planet of the Apes franchise ended in 1973 and it was actually one of the world's first film franchises. The final entry, Battle for the Planet of the Apes, unfortunately, was the lowest-grossing film in the series. The franchise was untouched until Tim Burton remade the classic in 2001. Rotten Tomatoes gave the remake a 45%, despite its opening weekend being a financial success in the box office. 2. Night of the Living Dead The Walter Reade Organization Night of the Living Dead, originally released in 1968 and it basically started the whole "zombie" thing and paved the way for modern-day zombie movies to come into effect. However, there was a remake that came out in 1990 and it was actually written by the original guy who wrote the first one. Safe to say the first was better. 3. The Wolfman Universal Pictures The original Wolfman movie came out in 1941, but there was an unfortunate remake in 2010. One can assume that as a 2010 remake of a classic, untouchable 1940s film was a box office flop despite having a pretty decent cast (Emily Blunt, Hugo Weaving, and Sir Anthony Hopkins). 4. Pretty much every '70s and '80s thriller film Screen Rant We're talking Halloween, The Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, and more. There have been countless remakes of these breathtaking thrillers and they really put the franchises to shame. We can't even count on one hand how many Scream remakes there are, in addition to the 2003 Texas Chainsaw Massacre (which was literally a massacre), and the 2010 Nightmare on Elm Street that would make Freddy Krueger roll in his grave. 5. Carrie United Artists The original Carrie came out in 1976, based on the Stephen King horror novel, about a girl who is mercilessly bullied at school and discovers she has telepathic powers. She uses these powers to commit atrocities at her school, soon becoming a murderer to get revenge on everyone who bullied her. The remake came out in 2013 and, you guessed it, flopped hard due to its lackluster nature. Read more classic films that didn't deserve a remake on the NEXT page... 6. Psycho Paramount Pictures Psycho was a film that came out of the 1960s (the year 1960 to be exact), which is easily one of Alfred Hitchcock's best films to date due to its twisted nature. A remake of the film was released in 1998, and despite it starring Vince Vaughn, it simply could not live up to Anthony Perkins' incredible performance of the main character, Norman Bates. 7. The Alamo United Artists The original film for The Alamo came out in 1960. It is a retelling of a historical event in Texas history and was nominated for three Academy Awards. Since the film performed so well, it's no wonder why it received a remake in 2004. However, it performed so poorly that pretty much no one knows there's a remake of the original classic. 8. House on Haunted Hill William Castle Productions House on Haunted Hill was released to theaters in 1959. It was one of Vincent Price's most memorable roles and it is a classic film that everyone must see at least once. The 'haunted house' is as cliche as you'd think; filled with ghosts, murderers, skeletons, and more. The remake in 1999 had some initial success during its opening, but it was not memorable in the slightest. 9. Invasion of the Body Snatchers Walter Wanger Productions Invasion of the Body Snatchers debuted in 1956 about one year after the novel version was released. It's such a notable movie in time that even if you haven't watched the movie, you've heard the name. The first of many remakes came out in 1978, then 1993, then 2007. The 2007 film was easily the worst of the remakes as it strayed very far away from the original. 10. Ghostbusters Columbia Pictures The original Ghostbusters was released in 1984. It has become a household classic, especially during Halloween time! There was a 2016 remake of the film and while its total gross for its opening was pretty decent, many critics felt that the film was "underperformed."
