Not to nitpick, but wasn't The Thing already a remake of The Thing From Another World? Oh, and an adaptation of Who Goes There, a story from John Campbell, Jr., I believe.
As for Halloween, it's been done so many times, I don't think we need to worry about it being remade. Hell, you could say that all the sequels diluted the movie in the first place (but that's not to say that I don't watch and love them).

Evil Dead 2 is a sequel, they didn't have the rights for the footage from the first film, or something so it seems really wierd in the opening. at the end of the first one we see the evil get ash at the end. in the 2nd one, we see ash's hand possessed by the evil. and we of course see ash go through time at the end. point being, the second one isn't a remake but is often confused as a remake.

"You dirty Hollywood bastards! Leave classic movies alone! Evil Dead is a great, Great, GREAT movie. It is completely impossible to make a version that would be greater."
Dude, it's Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert pitching this remake. Hollywood's got nothing to do with it-if the guys who made it in the first place want to give it a shot, I'm willing to let 'em.

Wrong! Carpenter stated a while back that he'd been approached about a possible remake of Hallowe'en. I guess if they do it right it could work (and that includes Phillip Seymour Hoffman taking the Loomis role), but I am NOT happy with the upcoming remake of The Fog.
