Horror franchises trying to return from the dead
Horror movies are in a great place right now, but even in the midst of our current boom of original tales advancing the genre — like A Quiet Place, Hereditary, or Get Out — Hollywood has yet to give up on the allure of rebooting old stories and continuing the legacy of classic horror franchises.
