A good horror remake is hard to find. For every success, like 1978's 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' and 1986's 'The Fly,' there are at least a dozen misfires that serve only to tarnish the legacy of their predecessors. So with 'Fright Night' opening this Friday, 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark' (remade from a 1973 made-for-TV movie) due on August 26, and 'The Thing' prequel (which looks awfully similar to the 1982 version) just two months away, Moviefone has a few words of advice for all the filmmakers out there who have given us the good, the bad, and 'The Fog.' Here are 10 simple rules for successfully remaking a horror classic.
