Nightmare on Elm Street
Halloween
The Thing (Prequel, but basically a remake)
Friday the 13th
The Wicker Man
Psycho
Mirrors
The Hitcher
Children of the Corn
Prom Night
The Fog
The Omen

Good sequels/reboots are hard to come by (I can only think of 5-6 that are actually good) and there is no reason to continue piling on bullshit movies to make a quick buck, which is what they do and will continue to do for as long as they make money. Occasionally they will hire a good writer/director who gets the source material and it will work (Dawn, Hills, Last House) but is it really worth it?
