Do 'Sleepaway Camp,' 'Pet Sematary' and 'The Addams Family' Need Horror Reboots?

Sleepaway Campb

Recently we've seen the '70s classic Carrie brought back for the big screen with mixed results, and now we're faced with the prospect of more well-known horror properties getting the reboot treatment. What do you think? Are these three planned horror reboots inspired ideas? Or tired concepts that should die on the vine? We've rounded up the original trailers -- and added our own thoughts -- to help you decide.


Sleepaway Camp (1983)

Premise: Kids go to camp. Then they die. The killer is revealed in a shocking twist ending.

Plans: The original filmmakers will be involved. The goal is to reboot "in a modern setting with a new film series that echoes its legacy and the psychosexual elements that made the first pic such a memorable cult favorite."

Prognosis: The movie's cult reputation was built entirely on the surprise finale, which inspires fits of giggles along the lines of "Are you kidding me?!"

Prediction: Huge fail. Sorry. You can't surprise people twice, and in the age of social media, no one will be shocked by the ending, whether it's changed or not.


Pet Sematary (1989)

Premise: Stephen King adapted his own novel about a burial ground where the dead do not stay six feet under. Mary Lambert provided vigorous direction.

Plans: A long-delayed remake has been resurrected under the direction of Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Months Later, Intruders). Veteran Lorenzo di Bonaventura (1408, The Devil Inside, Transformers) is producing.

Prognosis: Fresnadillo is a genuine horror talent with a flair for creepy atmosphere -- see his Spanish-language thriller Intacto -- and di Bonaventura can get him the resources he needs.

Prediction: Moderate success. The concept is straightforward horror, which will (unfortunately) limit the audience.


The Addams Family (1991)

Premise: The episodic adventures of a loving family with a great affection for the macabre. An excellent cast and witty direction by Barry Sonnenfeld made this a winner.

Plans: Previously announced plans for a stop-motion version have been dropped. Pamela Pettler (Corpse Bride, Monster House) has been hired to write the script for an animated movie.

Prognosis: Cartoonist Charles Addams created the characters, who were adapted into a live-action TV series in the 1960s, and later two different animated series, beside the feature films. The writer for the proposed new version has good experience with dark and entertaining family-oriented movies.

Prediction: Success! It's time for a new generation to be introduced to these delightful characters.
