Video Series Puts Horror Films Side By Side With Their Remakes to Show Similarities and Differences

Published

Most remakes of classic films tend to not stray all that far from the originals they’re based on, often recreating key moments along the way. Cinephile Matt Skuta is particularly fascinated by the ways remakes bring new life to iconic scenes, and his video series “Side-by-Side” highlights the different choices made by different filmmakers working with similar material.

In more detail, he explains…

“These side-by-side, shot-for-shot comparisons are intended to illustrate the the unique vision of filmmakers and the variety of choices possible when creating motion pictures adapted from the same written work or historical event and remakes from their original counterpart.”

Mind you, Skuta doesn’t only do this for horror films, but he’s done it with a handful including The Omen, Let the Right One In, Carrie, IT and the many different Hannibal projects.

These are quite fascinating to watch, if you’ve got the time…
