A lot of people complain about modern remakes of horror movies, but nobody offers a solution! Well. If you are thinking about remaking a classic horror movie, please consider making one of these instead:
1. Dig Yourself Out: Following an earthquake, a young woman who lives alone in LA is crushed under the huge stacks of self-help books she buys and never reads. We watch the whole movie through the camcorder that fell off her shelf and turned itself on. She can't reach her cellphone, or laptop, or move, so she begins to actually read the books, eventually bettering both herself and her understanding of a person's place in this world before getting attacked and killed by an ancient Mummy that was sealed in one of the walls until the quake.
2. Endgame: A young boy is a chess prodigy, and his parents are very involved with his career, pushing him to be a big chess star. But just because you are good at something doesn't mean you love it. He puts on a brave face and tries to make his parents happy, all the while sneaking off to murder neighbours. He uses his strategic mind to orchestrate elaborate and grisly death traps. But in the end he's going to have to stand up to his parents… in beautiful and deadly mother Russia!
