    Coming APRIL 30th, 2010 - Freddy Krueger gets a re-do. Will they ACTUALLY make him scary/menacing again as he was in the 1984 original directed/created by Wes Craven??? We will see. But, it does look like it touches on things from the original , yet w/ new spin. Hope its good & scary again. But, going by Michael Bay/Andrew Form's track record (the producers behind it & that head PLATINUM DUNES ((ie: Amityville Horror remake, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, & Friday the 13th remake) - it could either be good or BLAND.

    I think I'll check this out just to see how it compares. I see they kept Tina's death scene (one of the best death scenes in a movie) and the bathtub one, too.

    But I see Michael Bay is behind this... I'm not sure if I want to encourage him to make more films.

    Eh, 'technology" doesn't really CREATE a good character dude. Besides, they did his makeup in this new one w/ prosthetic effects. Hopefully they don't use ALOT of "green/blue screen" CGI CRAP. Cuz, that shit looks fake - just saying!


    But honestly, the effects in the '84 ORIGINAL still hold up REALLY WELL even for todays standards. It still is scary.

    CGI or "todays technology" doesn't make a "better" film, per se. haha

    Hopefully w/ the scene where she's thrown up to the ceiling It'll be done through use of wires & such (which GOOD cgi can take out). but doing shit against a GREEN SCREEN, blah!

    I'm not worried about effects (again, the original had GOOD effects as is), but moreso if they will make Freddy SCARY AGAIN!!

    Again, he better be SCARY & less "sympathetic" - once sympathetic no longer scary. Its the truth!

    Also - I bet the NEXT big franchise he'll get is : PHANTASM

    Which, THAT series could benefit with a good storyteller & direction - cuz w/ some of todays technology - PHANTASM would kick ass & be a good action/horror/scifi/fantasy if had enough money!

    I'm a huge fan of the PHANTASM series - so don't get me wrong. I enjoyed its low-budge but inventive roots. However, THAT is a franchise that could def benefit from today's technology. Cuz it IS very effects driven.


    Anyway, back to "Nightmare On Elm Street"

    Yeah that is the same kid from HAUNTING IN CONN. & JENNIFER'S BODY. He's playing the role I guess JOHNNY DEPP made his movie debut with.

    But, the dream sequences look like they may be very visually well put together & thrilling!

    I agree with Phantasm. Every year around Halloween I put halloweenish movies at the top of my que. Phantasm is in there and a few werewolf types as well. I always enjoy a werewolf movie for the most part. Last year I watched old B rated movies and their remakes. Like The Blob and The Thing.

    I doubt I will see Nightmare on Elm Street in the theater. I may see it on DVD though depending on what I hear about it. I just do not like Michael Bay as a director.

    I like everything about the trailer EXCEPT the end face shot of Freddy..what is going on there with the mouth?...its not opening when he speaks. I am soo glad they kept the traditional bath tub scene with the glove coming out of the water. I am going to have to get used to the voice tone diference from the original freddy to the new one. Other than those points I am excited to see the film.

    I agree, most remakes suck with teeth.

    Remakes 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! icon_twisted.gif

    Oh, Michael Bay did NOT direct the new NIGHTMARE film - he ONLY partially PRODUCED it (he owns PLATINUM DUNES, the horror film company he runs).

    A music video/commerical director named SAMUEL BAYER (i think thats the last name) directed this film.

    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!

    Meh. Yeah its a remake of a classic, but its still a slasher flick. I haven't seen one yet that I have enjoyed or thought was scary. There is a distinct difference between depraved and scary. It's my opinion that all the horror movies these days are trying to top one another in terms of who is the most fucked up, rather than who can cause the most suspense and make you afraid to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

    I think it's soooo funny how the guy they chose to play Freddy in the remake actually played a pedophile in another role in a different movie (sorry forgot the name). It's like he's stuck playing the bad guy when it comes to kids lol.

    I've been watching horror movies since I was like 4, so I guess I've never found any of them really scary, either, but they have always captivated me. Horror and Sci-fi are universes where anything can happen and I find them much more thrilling than other types of drama or suspense that I usually know exactly what's going to happen 15 minutes into the movie.

    As for the depraved horror movies of today, that's just icing on the cake for me. For me, it adds to the whole cerebral experience. No one wants a car accident to happen, but when it does the scene is usually inundated with bystanders secretly hoping for a quick peek.

    What also made the movie a hit was Freddie campy sense of humor and the one liners and also Robert Englunds voice. Eh! We will see.

    I have a confession to make. I have just started my attempt to write a screenplay that is the prequel to the Friday the 13th series.

    I have always wanted to write a successful screenplay, like it's one of my things-to-do bucket list, and after watching the original first episode about 2 months ago, I started to figure out a plausible way to write the prequel. Just yesterday I started writing a synopsis so that I can use it as an outline for the screenplay.

    Yawn. This looks lame, like, I dunno, it's just like, man...not cool.

    I'm assuming it's shit since it's being released in April when this looks like a total fall or summer film...why don't they just leave these classics alone?
