I liked the remake myself, and look forward to any remake that is released. Gives something new to watch, as opposed to having to watch the same old movie over and over.
Don't get me wrong the old movies are classics, which is what they are and always will be. I always see that the re-makes draw in a new crowd and let the company's make some money for themselves.... whats wrong with that? New people get into the horror community, get interested by the remakes and then buy the older movies which gives everyone revenue... Problem?
