I'm really not a horror fan, but I'd go and see this because it was filmed partially at my high school.

I can't think off the top of my head of a good remake that bested the original.
Scarface. The Incredible Hulk, (I know pulling at strings), Batman Begins, Casino Royale.
Scarface you can argue. However, Incredible Hulk and Batman Begins are reboots/reinterpretations and not direct remakes of a previous film.
Casino Royale kinda has its foot in both camps.
