Yes, but when the underlying horror plot for the original is one of the most cliched and generic in the genre, removing the comedy aspect leaves it as just that; the shell that has been seen so many times in so many other films in the genre.

Outside of the gore, the remake was not at all exceptional imo, and was almost completely forgettable. So yeah, if you’re specifically a fan of gore then go for it, but I don’t think a film is worth being elevated in the genre just for having good gore when there are quality horror films that succeed in many different aspects at once.
