Who here is excited/repulsed by the recent news of a Platinum Dunes-produced remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street?
Elm Street Remake
Jackie Earle Haley (Rorschach in Watchmen, the child molestor in Little Children) is confirmed to be cast as Freddy Krueger. After his performance in Little Children, I think he's got the child molestor/murderer part down pretty well. I'm just curious about whether he'll be menacing enough.
"A Nightmare on Elm Street - Robert Englund = Fail Those movies wont be the same without Robert Englund."*sniff*
Dude how can you say you don't like hills have eyes it is by far the best remake to come out in a long long while but beside the point.
I will miss Robert but i am hopeful for this movie.
I also thought New Nightmare was very meh....i do hear Wes is working closely with this and considering Last House on the Left Turned out decently i think he may have something in him that wants to make good movies again.
Also Friday the 13th (2009) is not a good movie just saying. It isn't a remake its just another Friday movie if it was Friday 12 that at least would have not made it seem as if it was something fresh it wasn't. As a Friday movie it was OK but that's really not saying much. Considering most of the sequels are ass
Also tons of movies get reboots that don't need them look at Suspiria....why would you even try.
