    It's been a year for a lot of remakes, with horror in particular, so which one was your least favorite?

    Only one on that list I've seen is Dark Water, and it wasn't half bad. The origonal was better, but overall I liked it. I'm willing to bet with all the negativity that The Fog is a shoe-in. I'm not desperate enough to try to see it though.

    I voted for The Amityville Horror... talk about crap. I rather liked House of Wax, though. I haven't seen either Dark Water or The Fog, but from reading all the negative comments on this board, I bet The Fog is even worse than The Amityville Horror.

    I came across a rather long review that perfectly details exactly why Amityville 2005 sucks so much ass. You can read it here.

    I voted Amityville. Sure, its the only one I've seen, but it was horrible enough that I don't feel bad voting for it without having seen the others. At least Dark Water and House of Wax have Jennifer and Elisha, so those factors alone will make them more enjoyable to me. I will not be seeing The Fog remake. Ever.

    The Fog by far. House of Wax, Amityville Horror, and Dark Water, as much as I despise remakes, were good actually. It all comes down to entertainment and scares. Those three delivered in some ways. The Fog delivered none of the above.

    I've only seen Amityville (AKA Shit Pile of a Remake) and House of Wax. I was quite surprised that House of Wax wasn't complete poop and was somewhat enjoyable so that leaves me to vote for Amityville.
    I won't be seeing The Fog either.

    Amityville gets my vote. It's a very silly remake that makes the original a classic. I have no desire to see The Fog. The only remake that might be interesting is the one for The Hills Have Eyes.

    I haven't seen any of them, and it sounds like I'm one of the lucky ones. I'll Netflix them just to see how bad they are...but they'll be at the bottom of my list.

    It's funny that THE AMITYVILLE HORROR is holding it's own against THE FOG, but only because those people who're voting for AMITYVILLE flat out refuse to see THE FOG. Using logic, then THE FOG HAS to be inherently worse than AMITYVILLE because for some reason more people are willing to watch AMITYVILLE but not THE FOG.

    Only saw DARK WATER, and didn't like it, so that's my pick.

    I'll probably rent AMITYVILLE pretty soon, but will probably only watch THE FOG if it's on cable in a couple of month....I've heard HOUSE OF WAX is actually not bad, so I'll probably rent that one too when it comes out.

    I've only seen two of them, but I think House of Was was worse than The Amityville Horror but not by much.

    I am going to see The Fog on Thursday so I will hold off until then. I will say that I am very dubious about it being worse than House of Wax, which is one of a handful of slasher movies in existence that couldnt even get me, the slasher fan who likes everything, on its team. I guess I will know on Thursday though.

    And I thought Amityville was a pretty good movie due in part to a standout performance by Ryan Reynolds, and that Dark Water was one of the more underrated "horror" films of the year due in part to a great performance by Jennifer Connelly.

    So far I have only seen Amityville, and I kinda dug it. I didn't really like the original though. I will be watching House of Wax soon, and I will see Dark Water when it comes out. Again though, I didn't jump for joy over the original Dark Water.

    I'm not looking forward to The Fog at all.

    In all fairness to the accuracy of this poll I choose not to express my American right to vote.

    I have not seen The Fog (nor do I intend to), I am sure it sucks. But I really, really hated The Amityville Horror.

    I haven't seen The Fog remake and don't plan to. The Amityville Horror remake was pretty damned crappy. The House of Wax remake was somewhat enjoyable.

    Amityville was lame, House Of Wax was pretty good, haven't seen Dark Water. I thought The Fog was pretty good, but Tom Welling needed to be in it more, in my opinion.

    I'd vote for other, The Ring Two! That movie fuckin' blew.

    I haven't seen House Of Wax or The Fog remakes however.

    I've only seen House of Wax and Amityville, I enjoyed HoW and Amityville was pretty bad but Ryan Reynolds and a free ticket saved it from sucking completely. Dark Water I assume that I'll enjoy when I see it. That leaves The Fog...I won't vote because I haven't seen it, but I'm pretty sure that will be my choice.
