Look, I get it. Hollywood is tapped out in terms of original ideas. Furthermore, before any movie studio even forks over coin to start shooting a picture, they need to know there is some sort of fan base to ensure a decent return on their investment (see the copious amount of horror movie remakes over the last couple of years and the utterly shitastic, Transformers).
The House on Sorority Row (now entitled Sorority Row) is being remade and apparently they dragged out Princess Leia from whatever rock she's been living under. Why they chose to remake one of the worst slasher films ever (looky here), is beyond me.
Apparently the dude who played Rorschach in the Watchmen flick is going to be the new Freddy Krueger. Whatevs.
