  • I think the original Psycho was better. Sometimes what makes a movie great is what you think happens as opposed to a ton of gore.

  • Hairspray.....I LOVED the old version but despised the new one. I may be one of the few BUT I didnt care for it.

  • Original better:
    The Eye
    Friday the 13th

    Remake better:
    War of the Worlds

    I'm on the ropes with Dawn of the Dead, though. Both versions were great.
