Monsterfest Talk Forum: The Talk forum this week is wondering whether horror films can successfully be remade. Despite my assertions that for the most part they cannot, Monsterfesters aren't yet ready to throw in the towel. Said dizzy, "How about Little Shop of Horrors? Not only did it get remade, it got remade as a horror musical... and was a huge success!" Carnage echoed those statements simply: "I for one enjoy remakes," he said, while DRKellogg provided a more detailed argument. "I have a copy of the first Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) and I still prefer that version, although the one from 1978 is pretty good. Another good movie is Village of the Damned with versions from 1960 and 1995. Of course, the newer one has been modernized and in some ways, that weakens the story (as I think happens in most remakes), but times have changed and events are much more 'in your face.'"
