"By some estimates there are more than 100 remakes currently in the works. Sometimes, filmmakers are motivated by a genuine desire to update a classic story for modern audiences. In other scenarios, the remake is little more than a shameless cash grab or uninspired retread into formulaic territory. Once in a while, these remakes are mega-hits, like the 1954 version of "A Star is Born" or the 1957 reboot of "An Affair to Remember." More often than not, however, they're complete flops.
Stacker ranked each film according to its IMDb rating. In the case of a rating tie, the total number of user votes was taken into consideration. The list includes films of all genres, from comedy to horror to drama to romance. Some of these movies, like "The Stepford Wives" and "House of Wax," score low with viewers because of poor scriptwriting, bad editing, or cringe-worthy acting. Others, like "The Omen" and "Annie" rank low simply because audiences can't stand to see perfection messed with."
