Okay, here we go... a couple of hundred, narrowed down to a couple of dozen.
Before I get into it, I'll clarify a couple of things so you don't get all judgy on me.
Firstly, we decided not to include any of the Universal monster movies because there are just too danged many remakes and we don't want to spend the whole month on those.
Secondly, we're not including any foreign language remakes this time around. There were just too many movies to choose from and cutting them out seemed an easy way to simplify it. (Don't worry, we're not forgetting them. We're just not including them in the main countdown.)
Right. Now that's out of the way, I give you...

Whelp, that was the easy part. How the heck do we narrow it down from here? We're still working on that bit. Check back on October 1st and (hopefully) we'll have a finalized list of the best horror remakes.
Or, maybe we'll take it day by day and you'll just have to wait. A little anticipation is good for the soul. ;) While you're waiting, why not get in touch and give us your favourite horror remakes?
