I only saw what was in the trailer and it looks weird. I guess it wasn't really makeup, looked like CG to me

Jesus, grow a damn spine. Now you wont even take credit or pride in your own work. Saying "Oh its not finished for every negative response." At least someone who does a p**s poor job and fesses up to it and says "This sucks but I made it" deserves a little respect. You are basically just a rat. How can you claim to present yourself in an intelligent way when you cannot make an intelligent film. Hell you guys cant even come up with your own ideas. You aren't filmmakers, you are leaches sucking off of someone elses creativity. If these remakes weren't just slash and burn, move onto the next. And made by a competent production team then they might be acceptable. But they are just sad, Hire a cheap writer, a music video director "Who can make a flashy trailer", and cheap actors and you get crap. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.


Man, that guy's repsonse to Brad Fuller was awesome!  Thumbup

That does remind me...  It's ****ing annoying that they always get totally inexperienced directors to do these remakes.  Sorry, music videos don't count.  It's bad enough that they're taking a classic that doesn't need to be remade and remaking it - but really, are there NO good directors out there willing to take a crack at it?

At least one of the two writers is OK - Wesley Strick did the remake of Cape Fear and Arachnophobia.

That always my point. If they're going to do a remake, do something that flopped years ago or had no budget. Not films that were hugely popular and have already made big bucks. It then becomes so obvious that these are people with no creativity out to make another fast buck.

If they were to juggle the story a little, it might be interesting.  Like, have Freddy be a serious creep, but NOT the person who was actually killing the kids.  Maybe he KNEW who was doing it but was afraid to reveal it, but he takes the fall.  So he comes back to get revenge, kinda like, "Well, you blamed me for it. You KILLED me for it. I might as well do it for real."

And I hope they have a solid ending. I am so utterly sick of the "Is it real? Is it a dream? You don't know and neither do we." cop-outs films use these days and, well, the original Freddy films used.  Once was fine, but every stinking time? Come on, people, grow some balls and make a choice.

At some point, I'll end up watching it, but it won't be on my dime.

It's kind of stunning to see the visceral hate here.  It was the same with the remake/reimagining of FRIDAY THE 13TH.  This looks like fun to me.  I won't go in with the highest expectations, but I'm fairly certain it will entertain me for two hours.  FRIDAY THE 13TH (2009) entertained me for a couple hours.  That's all I ask of any movie.

Some people are thinking, based on the opening of the trailer, that this is actually what they did.  It's unclear though.

I agree, I liked RZs Halloween, Haven't seen the second though.

I am a huge Nightmare fan and the new makeup will take some getting used to but I am looking forward to this(even though Micheal Bay is involved BounceGiggle ).
I'm a huge Nightmare fan as well.  From what I understand the original makeup was supposed to look like it does now, more like what a burn victim would look like.  However something went wrong with the design, making it 'flap' or something, so they took the route they did.

As far as Bay, I don't like his movies (although, I did like the TCM remake.  It wasn't 'great', though.)  I think Jackie Earle Haley will be a decent replacement for Englund.  I'm a big fan of Englund, but logistically, he is around 62/63.  He really doesn't have a much longer shelf life to be doing 20 hour shoots and running around with five pounds of face makeup on at a regular basis. 

Then you could just 'no longer do the franchise' so to speak, but the studios are gonna want to make money off their property, so they're just gonna bastardize it anyway.

As mentioned before, it was kinda hinted at in the trailer that Krueger may be wrongly accused.  But that's not to say all will be revealed in the movie.  Apparently, Haley was signed to star as Freddy in 3 new flicks.  So we may get to see a little revealed per movie.  Maybe he's an unpopular guy in the neighborhood and they just blame him as a scapegoat instead of going after the real perpetrator.  I dunno.

I like my killers to be totally sick from the start. That would make it seem more like a Korn video.  Lookingup

It's kind of stunning to see the visceral hate here.  It was the same with the remake/reimagining of FRIDAY THE 13TH.  This looks like fun to me.  I won't go in with the highest expectations, but I'm fairly certain it will entertain me for two hours.  FRIDAY THE 13TH (2009) entertained me for a couple hours.  That's all I ask of any movie.  


I'm much the same way. The only problem is, Friday The 13th '09 did NOT entertain me for two hours. Didn't even entertain me for half an hour. The grand total of time I was entertained came in at about 10 minutes total. Those 10 minutes were... the time America Olivo was on-screen, the "roasting over an open fire" kill, the underused "stoned Asian kid," the scene where the "good girl" gets offed (I liked that for a half-second but I thought that MAYBE they were gonna start throwin' caution to the wind and break some movie rules... but they promptly turned right back on me and continued on their predominantly formulaic way), and the "stupendous" sex scene. The chick in the lake was nice to look at too. I could get more out of a porno.

To be frank, I think ANOES will translate better as a remake, but I'm still not expecting anything good. The problem with Nightmare (which is, I think, the same problem the Hellraiser remake will have) is that, unlike Jason or Michael Myers who could be literally anybody in a mask, Freddy has personality. After an entire franchise full of films, going right up to the fairly recent Freddy Vs. Jason, Robert Englund is synonymous with Freddy. It's gonna be DANG hard for somebody to surpass him, and I don't think any of the actors we have are really up to the job. It's like Coke and New Coke. Sometimes you just canNOT replace the original, no matter how much you want to.

Also, is it just me, or is more enraging when they remake a fairly recent franchise (the 80's ain't that long ago, man, and the effect is only exacerbated by how long the the series lasted, as I said right up to Freddy Vs. Jason which is a VERY moden movie) than an older movie? I also don't understand the "let's remake a franchise that EVERYONE IS FAMILIAR WITH, and not just a little familiar... intimitately familiar" thing. After a certain point, these characters become iconic. It'd be like if someone proposed making Ronald McDonald more "hip" and "edgy" by making him a Jacka**-style stunt/prank junkie instead of a kid-friendly clown. As much as Circus might relish that, people all over the world would lose their dang minds.
