  • A Nightmare on Elm Street - 4/30/10

    Just in time for my birthday. I can't wait for this remake. The original Elm Street scared the shit out of me as a kid. Check out the teaser:

    I'm cautiously optimistic. The guy playing Freddy, Jackie Earle Haley (Breaking Away, Little Children, Watchmen) is a good actor, and he could make a really creepy Krueger.

      The original terrified me too. So much scarier than the torture porn you see in films like Saw and Hostel.

        Brilliant!! can't wait to see that, didn't know they were doing a remake. Yeah the original scared me to but i was only 5 lol. I love all the freddies, i find them too funny, number two is the best, there's freddy throwing coal in the boiler and making everyone hot lol and the bird in the cage freaks out and bursts into flames hahah.

        Don't think there will be any humor in this one like all the others. I hope it is scary because these days horrors just ain't scary. Bring it on looks awesome.

        I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past, so one way to get the most out of life is to look at it as an adventure.

          Mate, I hadn't realized it until you mentioned it that that is what Jesse witnessed Freddy doing in his basement. It didn't occur to me until now that he was the one making everyone so hot.

          Freddy's Revenge is good. I hate the scene in which Freddy comes out of Jesse; it's like nails on a chalkboard.

            The trailer looks pretty freakin' cool! I'm not big on remakes, but I liked Rob Zombie's Halloween remake, and this remake looks even better!

            Yeah... I liked Saw and Hostel, but there's a creepiness that the original A Nightmare on Elm Street movie had that makes it scarier, and I think we can all relate to scary dreams that seem so real.

            knightrider - I like all the Nightmare movies except #2! Haha! It deviates from the whole concept, putting Freddy too easily into the real world rather than living in nightmares. That always annoyed me about #2.

            I enjoyed the humorous aspects of the Nightmare movies as the sequels progressed, but my favorites are the two where Freddy is less cartoony: the original and Wes Craven's New Nightmare.

            Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors had the best theme song though!

              The third one was the first and only movie that kept me awake at night (I hadn't seen the other ones yet). I dunno if I'll see the remake though. I'm not 13 anymore.

                It's the theme music, the frightening look of a villain not yet envisioned, the unavoidable need for sleep and vulnerability. The original was just brilliant in fear factor. Also, if you get the chance, buy the original's special edition DVD that came out in 2006. It allows you to watch the film and click over to see the same frightening scenes in different ways they were filmed and ultimately removed for the release. The best is when Freddy confronts Tina in the beginning - the edited scenes are just as creepy as what's left in the actual film.

                    Yikes! I think I will pass on that one. Have fun.
                    I am going to a film called "Mother" later. It is Korean and has subtitles, so no one will go with me. I don't mind going alone.
                    My son is coming over to watch "Pacific" (HBO) episodes with Dave.

                          "Mother" was good. You would have liked it. My sister took off work early and came along. We went for a cocktail after and was nice to get out.
                          Years ago I worked at a restaurant/brewey. There was an older, slightly eccentric man who would come in most nights to play blackjack and pull tabs. His name was actually Fred Krueger. He was a heavy drinker.
                          Once he slipped in the bathroom and fell backwords hitting his head on the urinal. It broke, water was spraying everywhere. His hair was even pulled off and floating in what was left of the urinal.
                          The next day he came in with a head full of stitches and was furious that the urinal was put where it was an wanted free dinner.
                          That is my Freddy Krueger tale.

                            Oh, my! Sounds a bit freaky in its own right.

                              Don't bother! Buy the original instead. The remake is not scary at all nor does it use Wes Craven's genius in creating the spine-chilling atmosphere by using haunting theme music, a Freddy with little sense of humor and a chilling voice. Plus the nightmares along with the deaths aren't very frightening.

                              The funny child molester angle of the remake is horrible. Freddy Krueger was originally a child-killer, not a child molester. He also wasn't very humorous in Wes' vision or in the films Wes were involved in.

                              Some of the original's most creepy scenes are alluded to or shown in quick homage, which is a terrible mistake on the part of the remakers. Tina's nightmare in which she encounters Freddy in the street alley? Forget it--changed her name to Kris and completely botched the dream sequence into a quick death. Nancy seeing Tina post-mortem in her nightmare at the school? You see it for two seconds at most in what the film calls a "micronap." Just two examples of the creepiest parts being left for silly special effects or just bad-acting.
