List RulesMust be a remake that was worse than the original

Is there anything worse than Hollywood remaking a classic and not even coming close... copying a film for no reason... Americanizing a British movie made a couple years before and not doing as good a job... Not having actors with as much style or talent as in the original... Totally screwing up everything... This list is far more than just the top 10 worst movie remakes. You'll find all manner of horrible movie remakes among the films below.

Be sure to vote up the bad movie remakes that you wish were never made in the first place and vote down the ones that you think are better than the original (or at least not terrible).
