    1-2 Freddy’s coming for you.
    3-4 Better lock your door.
    5-6 Grab your crucifix.
    7-8 Better stay up late.
    9-10 Never sleep again!

    It’s been 25 years since Wes Craven’s original Nightmare entered our dreams. I’m not a fan of the Hollywood remake craze, but when we first heard that Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, Shutter Island, Little Children) was taking over the roll of “The Springwood Slasher” Frederick Charles Krueger, I cound’t help but get onboard for this one.

    You’ve already seen the logo artwork above, but check out the grainy first look of the new Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) and below that is the first teaser poster, which mostly obscures our slasher’s face. Who want’s to bet that a full reveal happens durring Comic-Con 2009?

    A Nightmare on Elm Street invades our nightmares and theaters on April 16, 2010.

    What do you think?

      The original is my all time favorite movie in the world, and I’ve never been repulsive to remakes, but I really am disappointed they are remaking this one. Expensive advertising, like the one sheet, the staged pictures, or the new comic con footage shown can all look good and awesome and cool, but it’s not going to govern whether the movie is good or pathetically lame, cliché, and down-right terrible from story to characters. Don’t get me wrong, I really want them to prove me 110% wrong, but they did the exact same the thing with Friday the 13th with advertising and such and the movie turned out to be a complete failure, the characters all seemed to be expendable, predictable, and thinner than cardboard — they had absolutely nothing to them and I could care less which one was picked off next. It was basically another sequel with a new bunch of kids that are slaughtered. If it is a REMAKE of an ORIGINAL movie then the remake actually has to be original — and I’m sad to say it wasn’t in the least. Which leads me to say that the real main problem with remakes is that people pick up the idea because they know: # 1 It makes money (proved time and time again it sells to remake a classic, whether they deny it or not it’s the MONEY!), second is it’s the perfect scape goat for upcoming directors, actors, writers, etc. to have their name known and gain extra fame through a well-known name, in this case NOES, and lastly and most importantly is with the knowledge of all this above, the select people behind these remakes don’t spend their time wisely on key elements that made the originals ACTUALLY good! They spend their time on the ONLY thing they know: the iconic character that made it famous, the killer. When they do this they ignore character development, and key storytelling elements that are absolutely essential to making a good film (but it doesn’t matter to them, it makes the $$$ either way) and us unintelligent fans buy into the whole idea and flock to the theaters anyway (even though truthfully I will also probably go see it in theaters just because it’s my favorite film). I have even more confirmed faith that the film will disappoint because we all have past proof of several terrible remakes before this one (all under the belt of the same ones in charge of the NOES remake), otherwise I wouldn’t be so quick to judge. The film is already wrapped up so I know that nothing is going to be undone what already is done. I just want everyone to open their eyes and not be so brainwashed by the same filth that drew us in time and time before! Message to those involved in my favorite movie remake: PROVE ME WRONG PLEASE!
