Remaking old movies is a trend that's been going on in Hollywood for years. Sometimes the new version is well worth watching, but in some cases, it's not. That's where these movies come in. Despite how good the original films were, the reboots are not only disappointing, they're well-worth skipping entirely. These eight remakes are some of the most egregious examples.

Halloween was a landmark in the world of horror film, one that set the stage for countless movies that followed. That's not the case with the Rob Zombie-directed remake. The 2007 film focused far more on the back story of Michael Myers, spending almost the first hour showing his childhood. This removed much of the mystery from the character, and at times felt like it was trying to justify his violent actions. The remainder of the film is a rushed rehash of the original that lacks its suspense and dramatic tension, mostly because it tries to explain the scary villain's motivation, instead of just letting him be scary.
