I don't mind remakes if they're well-made and present an original take on the story. But it seems like they're being churned out to the exclusion of original ideas. As several people have pointed out, remakes have always been around. But at the same time, brand-new films with fresh ideas were being made. You had a mix of the two. Now it seems like there's more remakes out there than originals, at least in the sci-fi/horror genres. And if it's not a remake of a horror film, it's a lame-ass "been there, done that" PG-13(What, they're afraid to show kids getting chopped up now?
) teen horror flick with a totally used-up premise.
