    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.
    C5/6 incomplete

    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.
