Stop Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes from Desecrating Classic Horror Films sign now

Michael Bay is the director of seven feature films, with one currently in production. As of 2003, he and two others, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, have been the masterminds behind several commercially successful remakes of popular horror films from the 1970s. These have all been done under Bay's production company Platinum Dunes.

Despite the overall success of his remakes (and one original film) they are viewed as critical disappoints. As of September 4th, 2008, the movie review website Rotten Tomatoes, which compiles reviews from professional film critics and movie fans alike, has given the four movies Platinum Dunes has released to date the following average scores:

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 34\%
The Amityville Horror 24\%
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (original production) 13\%
The Hitcher 19\%

Upcoming remakes include Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and The Birds, with talk of remaking Near Dark and Rosemarys Baby, the latter of which is one of the only horror films to win an Oscar (Ruth Gordon Best Supporting Actress).

These films have served to not only detract from the appeal and magic of the originals, but to debase the genre as a whole. Platinum Dunes is nothing more than a money-making machine with absolutely no respect for the horror genre, and for he and his team to call themselves horror fans is a slap in the face to all the original horror writers and directors who have yet to receive their due recognition.

We call upon Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes to stop the desecration of classic horror films and to prevent the absolute debasement of the horror genre as a whole. As horror fans, we feel it is our duty to do all we can to prevent this monstrous vehicle from destroying the genre we love so dearly.
