“There’s nothing to be afraid of. They were right. It’s painless. It’s good. Come. Sleep.”

Remake. Say the word and you’ll no doubt spark a conversation about the death of originality in Hollywood and how brand recognition is more important than storytelling. While it’s easy to throw up half-hearted retreads like Total Recall (2012), RoboCop (2014), and Point Break (2015) as reasons to banish the remake altogether, there are a few great remakes that are arguably better than their predecessors. 1978’s Invasion Of The Body Snatchers kicked off a decade of great remakes, including John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982), Brian De Palma’s Scarface (1983), David Cronenberg’s The Fly (1986), and Chuck Russell’s The Blob (1988).

Alien: Isolation Ripley and Crew

As if everything that we’ve seen of Alien: Isolation wasn’t exciting enough for fans of Ridley Scott’s 1979 horror Alien, now comes word that Sigourney Weaver and others will also be reprising their roles from the original movie for the new game.
