The Devil's Rejects helmer, who was behind horror remakes Halloween and Halloween II, said that he would like to make more films based on his own concepts.
"I have lots of original ideas that maybe will get made," he told CNN. "But everyone... even if you bring them the most obscure movie that nobody's ever heard of - they want to remake that."
The 44-year-old also revealed that he used to complain about Hollywood's penchant for refashioning old movies, but has now accepted that studios want a sure bet during tough economic times.
He added: "Unfortunately, I don't run Hollywood, so I kind of have to look at what's there and go, 'Well, OK, this is how they want to do things and I want to make movies'. So I try to do what I tried to with Halloween - take something and as much turn it into my own thing as possible."
Halloween II is in US and UK cinemas now.
