They obviously don't know how to be creative anymore when it comes to horror movies. There is just no imagination. I can't see something like Evil Dead, Phantasm, Nightmare on Elm Street ever coming out again with how uninspired so many recent horror movies are. They remake something fun like Elm Street or Evil Dead, and all you get is a reimaging with more blood (and sometimes not even that) and everything else that made the movies special sucked out. Can they not cast just average looking people anymore? There would be a start. And can only horror movies that are gravely serious be scary? Can they not make a dark film where maybe a tongue comes out of the phone to liven it up a bit and keeps you surprised? Or an animated severed finger becomes a fly? Everything is just so dull and predictable anymore and yet it seems most eat it right up. A big part of the appeal of the Evil Dead series is it's looney madcap charm - take that away and it's not very special. I'd rather watch [Rec] again than this anemic Evil Dead - at least that movie had tension and possessed people that creeped me out.
