A FEARnet fan on Facebook recently asked us about all the remakes and sequels coming out of Hollywood these days, and why there seems to be such a lack of originality. I need to say that I totally understand his frustration. It feels like it’s been a long time since we’ve seen some quality original horror like The Descent. Sadly, the main reason for this is because The Descent made $9 million its opening weekend, while the Platinum Dunes remake of Friday the 13th made $40 million.

The lack of originality in Hollywood is due to its lack of patience. If you’re already familiar with a movie title, the studio doesn’t have to spend money illustrating the concept for you. Whether you love the idea of a new A Nightmare on Elm Street or hate it, you still know it, and there’s a pretty good chance you’re curious about it. You can buy that kind of press, but it’s expensive.
