Gather round, children of the night, because it's time for another Poster-Crop Quiz. This week, be prepared to be scared. In honor of Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead, we've conjured a group of posters from horror-remake past.
There is always a great deal of controversy surrounding horror remakes, and we've made sure to throw plenty of fuel onto that fire. We added rankings, arranging the cropped posters of horror remakes in order from best to worst. The truly scary thing is how bad are the films on the lower half of the list. See if you can identify these films from the hacked-and-slashed versions of their posters. The first person to correctly name the full lineup in the comment section will receive a shout-out in next week's quiz.
Don't agree with the rankings? Notice any horrifying omissions? Leave that feedback in the comment section as well. Give it a try, what are you afraid of?
To put us in the right mindset, take a gander at the theatrical poster for Alexandre Aja's The Hills Have Eyes. Aja's highly violent reimagining actually makes significant improvements to Wes Craven's 1977 schlockfest. Namely, it makes the bold, and highly welcomed decision to strike the desert mutants of their speech.
