See previous posts. Blame the audience, not the studios. They're the ones who made the FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH remake a hit. And TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, HALLOWEEN, etc.
And movie history is full of superior remakes: BEN-HUR, THE MALTESE FALCON, THE FLY . . . . .
Englund was great, but no actor has monopoly on any role. Look at the history of horror movies. Bela Lugosi was
Dracula for a generation, but then came Christopher Lee . . . .
