In order to get ready for our Blog Talk Radio show airing July 20th at 10pm, we decided to consult another slasher fan, James King, to see what top 10 horror movies he would like to see remade. His list is a good one and we will have to see tomorrow how many, if any, might also appear on our official list. Thanks again James for your list!

1 thought on “Slasher Studios: Top 10 Horror Movies that Should be Remade (James List)”
Some of these are actually pretty decent films. I would only allow a remake so it could bring some attention to the originals. Other than that, there’s not like there’s anything to improve on.
