It appears that the future of horror movies - lies in the past. With remakes, updates and sequels becoming ever more popular, it seems like audiences want more of what they are used to.
Jamie Lee Curtis has made a trio of new Halloween movies, despite being killed off in Halloween Resurrection. Trying to recapture the magic of the 1978 original, while bringing the story up to date for new audiences is not an easy task.
Movies such as the Conjuring feature stories from the 70's and some real life characters.
Remakes can be hit or miss, but it does help promote the movies to modern day audiences who may not have been born when the originals came out.
The wave of nostalgia looks set to continue in the near future, but it makes you wonder, where will they go next? There are plenty of excellent books out there, waiting to be developed into movies. Hopefully we can see some of them soon.
