dyersburg_dude saidRemakes are a tricky thing. You have to attract a new audience without pissing off the original audience too much. The key to this remake will be in seeing if this Freddy stacks up to or surpasses the original.
P.S. Just thinking about "The Tall Man" still freaks me out. Phantasm rocked!
YES , PHANTASM DOES ROCK! Ugh, I dont care how many homo's have told me "UGH, there are no HOT guys in that film series!!!" - Sorry, I don't watch films or get my nuggets off for "hot guys" in movies. & yeah, the TALL MAN is creepy. Moving on....
WHen remaking this - they wanted to give Freddy a new "look". So they instead of remaking the same version of him from the prior films, they went into more detail of what a supposed "real" burn victim looks like/would suffer from. Hence, why his mouth looks like that. His skin is all charred up.
& rumor has it - He *MAY* *MIGHT* have a bit of "scottish" accent??? that is speculation though. But remember - this is NOT Robert Englund playing Freddy for the 1,000 time. It's a completely new actor giving it a different spin. Hope he's fucking creepy!
