We can complain all we want regarding beloved classics getting the remake treatment in other genres, but when it comes to horror, it seems to be a generally well-accepted practice. But this year, the idea will be tested to its limits, as two iconic horror films will get the redo, with at least one getting a very different take and today we’ve got new images from both.
