12 Remakes That Are Completely Different From the Movies They're Based On

Movie remakes, as much as we all complain about them, are not new, nor are they particularly symbolic of a lack of originality. While there have certainly been some ill-conceived retreads over the years, as well as some what's-the-point shot-for-shot retreads — 1998's Psycho could be described as both — there are also some cases where the newer product is so much different from the former that it can be considered its own animal.
When compiling this list of the 12 Remakes That Are Completely Different from the Movies They're Based On, we sought to pick films so different in tone and plot points that they could be seen as a completely new viewing experience by the people encountering them who are familiar with the originals.
