Let's see...we still have Christine, The Wraith, Basket Case, Tourist Trap (I'd like to remake that myself, but indie style) Westworld, Silent Rage.......
Before you know it, they will start remaking TV movies.
If I'm not mistaken, I think Dont Be Afraid of the Dark was a TV movie. Im sure there are more as well.
The thing about remakes (in some cases) is that sometimes it seems like Hollywood is just using the name of an original, well because it's familiar. They may take snippets of the original but from what I have seen they can pretty much just make an entirely new movie and not use the same name. Of course this can't work with all movies such as the popular franchises (Jason, Freddy, Myers) - in those instances, just DON'T remake them or create your own character! They won't do this because there is money to be made and despite the cries of the fans (myself included) most will go and watch anyway or they'll just bring in an entire generation of newbs. Either way, they're going to make it.... but why Evil Dead!!! :-(
