Redbook Logo By Alex Aronson of Redbook | Slide 1 of 15: Hollywood loves horror movies. Why?

And, as some of the longest-running horror movie franchises have proven, audiences are willing to show-up for sequel after sequel, as long as they're done right. But there are some horror film properties and characters that just refuse to die. Horror movie remakes manage to find clever ways to frighten new generations of fans with the same spooky premises. From the original Universal monsters to the slashers of the '70s and '80s, the timeless appeal of these terrifying characters have made these the highest-grossing horror movie remakes of all time.
