The general opinion is that remakes are rarely better than the original films. But what about their movie posters? We've gathered together a collection of the main posters for many remakes overt the years along with with their original counterparts (or previous remakes in several cases).
For the most part the originals easily win out as far as we are concerned, especially in the case of iconic posters for the original versions of The Evil Dead, Red Dawn, Fright Night, Halloween, and The Hitcher. Still, there are a few bright spots amongst the remakes. The new version of A Nightmare on Elm Street , for instance, benefited from being able to sell the creepy image of Freddy Kreuger while the original seemed to have no idea of what the villain even looked like. Some of our favorites among the remakes include Piranha, My Bloody Valentine, and Planet of the Apes. So what are your thoughts regarding the best and worst posters for remakes compared to the originals?
