I like your idea with the movie from the hotel and the guy not remembering anything. Remaking the shining?!? Impossible! It is sooo good, probably one of the best classics.
I also like ( you are gonna laugh at this one!) the nightmare on elm street. Freddy Krueger. I remember watching growing up, me and my best friends sitting a hole in the sofa and smoking cigarettes and watching part after part after part... I grew up with freddy( as the movies) and I of course have them as collectors item. That was a must. My friend where we were watching these movies passed away and the movies still remember me on good old times of sequences of growing up with my friends.
I think horror ( or any) movies cam quite a significant part of your life.
