The Case For Horror Remakes

Join Kirsty, Dan and Stella as Stella makes her case for why the generally disparaged horror film remake is a valuable and worthy part of the horror genre.  To test this, the trio discuss four key examples of horror remakes from the last 20 years: The Grudge (2003), Let Me In (2010), The Crazies (2010) and Carrie (2013).

Please forgive the teammates occasionally being less coherent than usual, which was down to being forced to record the episode in the morning, rather than the usual afternoon!
