Now that they’ve officially closed the book on Ashley Williams’ Kandarian adventures — after covering all three seasons of Ash vs. Evil Dead — the Halloweenies have a new block of wood to axe through: Fede Alvarez’s 2013 remake/reboot/requel Evil Dead. That conversation is still weeks away, so to bide the time, they reflected on horror remakes they’d like to see.
So, that’s what they did. Once again, Halloweenies co-hosts Michael Roffman, McKenzie Gerber, and Justin Gerber pulled out their producers chairs and got to work. Ahead, you’ll hear them workshop 10 different horror movies that are just screaming for a remake. As always, they go the extra mile and name preferred filmmakers. Cast, too.
