FIRST OF ALL: the fact that everyone is saying "americans this and americans that." is offensive. I mean WTF? I personally didn't go and remake any films. So be correct and just say Hollywood. Some of you just sound like you're hating on America, and that isn't even the topic.

SECOND: American remakes of Asian horror movies sucked. Come to think of it the originals sucked to. Every single Asian Horror Film I've seen is basically the same thing. With the same bad guy. With the same idea. With the same.... almost everything. So I can't say I preferred the original. I will say that "The Lake House" was a crappy remake. I preferred the original in that case. But remakes are a double edge blade. There is good and bad. To be honest, if it wasn't for remakes, the originals wouldn't get recognized (here in America and other countries as well). I wouldn't have. People I know wouldn't have known about the original's titles either.

THIRD: "Americans have profit from something that doesn't belong to them" Uh hello? These remakes weren't stole or made illegally. The rights to these movies were SOLD, FAIR AND SQUARE. So the people that made, own, the originals you love put a price on them and sold them. Hollywood producers credit the originals and they don't claim the movies were their idea, they say "this is a remake of..." American remakes are making profit because Americans are paying to watch them in America. So if you want to blame someone for the crappy remakes, blame the producers the sold the films rights to Hollywood in the first place.

FOURTH: To answer the question. I think the Grudge is at the top of the worst remakes. And the Grudge 2. And One Missed Call.


us americans are definitely fond of being politically correct huh "hollywood" not "americans" haha that killed me.. but show me one person who can deny what uve said especially ...

"Uh hello? These remakes weren't stole or made illegally. The rights to these movies were SOLD, FAIR AND SQUARE. So the people that made, own, the originals you love put a price on them and sold them." lol true but ouch!

i cant say i agree on everything coz i kinda enjoy the original asian horrors coz only other horror ive seen is bollywood and their horror sucks!

Why do they need to remake all the asian films, Shutter, The Ring, The Eye, My Sassy Girl to name a few. If we can just watch it with different subtitles?

I don't know. The Departed was pretty good. It introduced it to a different audience. Of course, Infernal Affairs was cooler.XD, but the Departed was still one of the better remakes.


departed is a remake? woah! im glad they have remakes then coz this one was effin brilliant!

Well, am I wrong? Hollywood, not Americans.

Ouch? Sorry. XD

I haven't seen any Bollywood horror movie but I'll take your word for it.

PS. Departed was a FANTASTIC remake. Best director, best actors.... it was flawless. I'm sorry but the remake killed the original. Academy Award anyone? ^^

I'm not against it at all. If other asian countries can copy things from other asian countries why cant america?
plus in the award shows and whatever they do pay respect to it. it's the catagory called "BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY" and in commercials for the movie they usually do have the place where it says it remaked.

I get disappointed but then I'm awaiting the Cowboy Bebop and Death note movies.

Maybe that's why they remake stuff because original fans will see it just to check it out.

It's a remake of Infernal Affairs. You should definitely watch Infernal Affairs if you liked the Departed...almost everyone who's seen both liked Infernal Affairs better.

As an American, I hate the remakes too. I guess because the movies are more scarier. As for the subtitles, people are too lazy to read them.

Hmm it's a hit and miss most of the time. Most of the time people don't care if it's a remake or not, unless they're film buffs. Doesn't really bother me... what's weird is that why some people are bothered by this and not bothered by all the drama remakes. There are about 20 versions of Hana Yori Dango, I swear it's like the Japanese Ugly Betty.
