Here's my filled out version of my previous meme. [link]
#10.) The Pied Piper- If you're familiar with that story, you'd know that it's a story of a stranger in clothes of many different colors who plays his pipe to lure the mice out of the village. But when the mayor refuses to pay him a big amount of money, the piper plays another haunting tune which lures all the children into a secret cave. So basically, that's a pretty good reason to make this a horror film.
#9.) Little Red Riding Hood- Well I saw the recent Little Red Riding Hood and it was cheesey like the Twilight Saga. I also saw it in this Fear Net movie called Chillerama and it was also lousy. But still making this classic story about a girl who gets attacked by a wolf into a horror film is a great idea. Like remember that bit from the Brother's Grim story where the wolf tries to seduce Red?
#8.) Hansel and Gretal- Seriously, it's about two lost kids and a witch who fattens them up for dinner. How scary can you get with that? Of course, there's the film, Hansel and Gretle: Witch Hunters in development, but idea sounds kinda cheesey. I think they should just stick to the original story, but add some violence and gore to it.
#7.) Beauty and The Beast- The first time I heard the story was watching the Disney version and that scared the piss out of me. With the gothic castle, spooky forest, and savage beast, makes another good idea to do a horror movie on it. In fact, the story has inspired the creators of King Kong and Creature From The Black Lagoon.
#6.) Jack and the Beanstalk- Know what you should find terrifing of this classic tale? It's The Giant! Sure there's this film that's also in development called Jack The Giant Killer, but it's an action flick. I mean have you even seen how stupid the trailer for that looks? I just think it would be cooler if it were a horror movie instead. There's lots of those kind of films that have giants play the killer like The Amazing Colossal Man.
#5.) Rumpelstiltskin- If you thought Leprechaun was scary take a look at this! In fact the creator of that horror film series made a film called Rumpelstiltskin as well. But it was dumb, it was all about the little bastard trying to steal a baby again, but in modern times. In fact the mother learns what his name is early on in the film, but dosen't say it till the end! How lame can you go with that? And once more, the actor who played the title character wasn't even a little person at all, he was just a tall guy who spent the entire film slouching. So hopefully, someone would remake this film, but follow the story with a much darker tone.
#4.) Pinocchio- Well as I said from my pic, I really didn't like the film, Pinocchio's Revenge. It wa a cheesey ripoff of Child's Play. I would like to just see a horror retake of the story, but just have Pinocchio attack the city for rejecting him like in Frankenstien. In fact Tim Burton and Gullimo Del Toro are battleing it out to see who could make a better Pinocchio remake.
#3.) The Princess And The Goblin- For those of you who may not be familiar with it unless you saw that Don Bluth cartoon, it's a story about a peasant boy who has to save a little princess from an army of evil goblins. I mean it's like Gremlins and Labrynth combined. But hey if this makes a horror movie, it will sure put the Troll series and Hobgoblins to shame.
#2.) Peter Pan- And you thought seeing Robin Willaims in tights was creepy.
But seriously, have you ever thought that when Peter whisked Wendy and her brothers off to Neverland, it kinda counts as kidnapping? Makes sense. Although there's a film of that in development, it makes Captain Hook seem like the good guy, 'cause those filmakers have decided to make him into a police detective while Peter is abducting children in London. Personally, I think it would be cooler if maybe they also made Hook into a homicidal maniac who gets into a fight with Killer Pan. [link]
#1.) Sleeping Bauty- Ever since, the film Snow White: A Tale Of Terror, it made me think about a possible horror take on the classic Sleeping Bauty. Why not? Because in the original story there's an actual chapter where the princess gets raped while under the sleeping curse. Don't belive me? Then I suggest you read the story. Also Would any of you like to see the evil Maleficient as the killer?
