Well Kiddies, I am sure by now you are all getting used to the horror and sci-fi movie remakes that have been going down (and are still going down). I am also sure that you are aware of all of them. I thought I would mention one that hits theaters on April 30th. Of course, I am referring to A Nightmare On Elm Street.
Most people remember the original film and it put a little fright into us all. While it certainly is not most people's favorite of the horror classics from the 80's, it is still widely revered as just that.. a horror classic. Of course, it suffered from sequel burnout as most movie series do, but the original still remains in alot of horror fans top 10 horror movies. How well will the remake go over? It is hard to say when you handle the classics... it is damn near impossible to eclipse the original.
Here is the skinny on the A Nightmare On Elm Street Remake:
A group of suburban teenagers share one common bond: they are all being stalked by Freddy Krueger, a horribly disfigured killer who hunts them in their dreams. As long as they stay awake, they can protect one another... but when they sleep, there is no escape.
Donning Freddy's trademark fedora, red-and-green striped sweater, and four-bladed glove is Academy Award nominee Jackie Earle Haley. The film is being directed by award-winning music video and commercial director Samuel Bayer, marking his feature film debut.
