3 R's of Horror: Remakes, Reboots, & Rediscoveries - SXSW Film 2012 by SXSW published on 2012-08-23T18:09:25Z In recent years, movie studios have targeted the horror genre in creating non-stop remakes, reboots and sequels/prequels whether horror fans like it or not and there is no end in sight. Did Hollywood run out of quality original horror movie ideas? This panel will explore the new 3 Rs of horror, where remakes, reboots and rediscoveries such as documentaries & sequels/prequels are discussed by the filmmakers & producers who make them. The panelists will also discuss what challenges they encountered in making original horror films, and how they convinced the powers-that-be to fund their original horror ideas, when the 3 Rs are preferred. Despite the genre expertise, this panel is relevant to filmmakers of all genres who are faced with similar challenges in raising funds for original movie ideas versus being hired to remake or reboot an old (or not so old) title (horror or otherwise).
