The group will be studying the differences between a RE-MAKE and a RE-IMAGINED film. We will be watching different versions of the same films and the group will decide if it was re-made or re-imagined. We will also be discussing the psychological backgrounds of the main characters of the film as well as the view the directors decided to take when telling the story. Our final presentation will a comprehensive poster with reviews on the film and the ratings given by the group.

Halloween (1978):

  • This movie is a regular old flick, and it is also predictable and easy to guess, and due to the reason that not much technology was available to make the movie better it kind of looked funny rather than scary. -Ahmed K.
  • No story line, why was he killing? -Abraham C.

Halloween (2007):

  • This movie went into the mind of Michael. The psychological aspect of this movie was exaggerated a bit too much throughout the story line, but generally the blood shed and suspense made the movie. -Sara R.
  • This movie was really good because they showed the background which gave an understanding on the main character Michael Meyers and the killing scenes were really cool and it kept me entertained. -Kathleen G.

Friday the 13th (1980):

  • There is not much of a plot because it revolves around a “curse” on the camp and people dying. -Gustavo G.
  • Wasn’t as gorey as I expected and doesn’t show the bloody parts.-Stephanie L.
  • I personally favored this movie more than the re-imagined version. I found it more intriguing and suspenseful. -Meranda Z.

Friday the 13th (2009):

  • The movie actually caught my attention. It was easier to follow, the action actually looked real and it was just overall better than the 1980 movie.-Kiara G.
  • This movie was gorey; it was one of the best movies we watched. It was better than the original movie. -Jennifer T.

High Tension (2007):

  • It was a great movie. It made me think, a short movie but still good. Some parts needed to be explained more but overall it kept me interested from the beginning to the end. -Nicole M.
  • I’ve never seen a French horror film but this movie was definitely up to par to the best American horrors I have seen.-Sara R.

The Evil Dead (1981):

  • It was very creative, beautiful masterpiece. I have never seen such elegant dead people. -Ian S.
  • It was scary but funny. -Gustavo G.
  • More funny than scary, the deaths were too ridiculous to be real.-Max P.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974):

  • The way leatherface looked was real freaky and scary. I like the old version better than the 2003 version since it was more gritty. -Ana B.
  • The movie was disturbing for an oldie. It was crazy how gorey it was and graphic. I was hoping to see a little background. Overall its crazy that it was based on a true story. -Jennifer T.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003):

  • I loved it with a passion. I scared the living crap out of me. I enjoyed it to the fullest. The way the people were killed, it was really. really crazy.-Kathleen G.
  • It scared me! But it was better than the old version and it caught peoples attention when were were watching it.-Kiara G

Se7en (1995):

  • It was a long movie, it took a bit long to get into the action. When it did start it was good, a slow run through, even in the action part. It made some people fall asleep. It was more of a listening, and thinking movie than horror. -Nicole M.

The Exorcist (1973):

  • They way they made the little girl look was amazing. Some parts were funny the way the little girl was acting was hilarious and they way she was talking was funny. -Ana B.
  • This movie was lame. I never had any reaction to it. It was simply weird and easy to not focus on.-Kiara G.

Nightmare on Elm St. (1984):

  • This movie was an original, and although many parts of it looked fake it was still very entertaining and very interesting to watch. -Ahmed K.
  • This movie didn’t disappoint. The music and the way the girl reacted made sense to who was around and what was going on. However, it was melodramatic. -Tazkia A.

Nightmare on Elm St. (2010):

  • It was truely amazing, I loved the in and out of dreams and the killings were perfect. I love how Freddy would pop out of nowhere.-Kathleen G.
  • This movie was my favorite because of the intense and scary mood that it put on every scene of the movie.-Ahmed K.
