If you're going to do a remake, why not employ Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro?! This is one remake that sends the creepy meter higher.
The Departed finally gave Martin Scorsese his Oscar for Best Director. The movie also won Best Picture. Now, that's how you remake 2002's Infernal Affairs.

John Carpenter crafted a film icon all its own with 1982's The Thing. Kurt Russell was our guide to a horror story we will never forget. Sure, the 1951 Howard Hawks film is great, but Carpenter chilled us to our bones.
