The horror genre has seen many of them, and while some remakes have failed to leave their mark, others are still discussed today among those who love or loathe them, and this July, Brooklyn's Nitehawk Cinema will screen four notable horror remakes from the 21st century.

Taking place at midnight on the Friday and Saturday evenings of all four weekends in July, Nitehawk Cinema's "Rise of the Remakes" film series will kick off with Zack Snyder's reimagining of George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead.

We have official details and a full list of the featured films below, and to learn more, visit Nitehawk Cinema online.

From Nitehawk Cinema: "Remakes are a long-storied tradition in the genre, but the trend went full tilt around 2000, when a glut of crummy remakes flooded the market. It wasn’t all bad news – and for Rise of the Remakes, we’re highlighting some of our favorite horror re-hashes that expanded upon, and dare say, improved on their classic originals.

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

July 7 & 8 - Dawn of the Dead (2004)
July 14 & 15 - Let Me In (2010)
July 21 & 22 - The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
July 28 & 29 - Halloween (2007)"
