I haven't quite made my decision on it. The preview looks good, but it will take a lot of getting used to...I grew up on the classic Freddy, and they new one is definitely looking a bit different. I don't know if I like his voice, but honestly the face looks fairly decent (more "burn-victim" less "demon-wannabe".)

I think that the "old" Freddy movies were designed to be a bit humorous. But I always, growing up atleast, found some "Spooky-ness" to the movies. I mean the kids jump roping was kinda creepy back in the day, and the whole music/score for the movie had a very ominous feel to it...Classic stuff, and here's to hoping this will give a nice re-birth to a long avoided franchise.

I agree the older ones were pretty much putting scary with funny. More fummy than scary though.

I think there trying to Freddy to he was suppose to be. More of a I hate everyone and kill who I can, hands down approach. And it just may work out for them.

I never saw the Elm St. movies as scary but they were entertaining and I have seen them all and this will be no exception for me, plus the fact that Rorschach  :D!(Jackie Earle Haley) is playing the lead is awesome in my opinion.  :watchmen:

It's definitely going to be weird without England in the main role... after so many years and so many movies... it's just very hard (no matter how good the actor may be) to see someone else in the role.


That being said... I'm not one to condemn something before I've given it a chance.   So I will watch this movie when it comes out and I'll make my decision based on that.

As far as the trailer goes:

From the trailer this movie looks like it's going to be an exciting ride.   Freddy no longer seems to be the "quip and slice funny man"  .. he's just straight down to business.

I'm not sure about the girl they got playing Nancy here...but I'm reserving judgment until I've seen her work in the role.

The good thing is that, after this trailer was released, the producers did say that the Freddy Voice and Look (face wise) as not final.   They said that Haley was still working on the voice and they're making tweaks to the face.


So all in all, I'm in the "Wait and see" crowd.   If I like this film, then I'll definitely support any sequels (which you know are gonna come anyway).  If I don't, then for me it stops with the first.


Really wish it was still Robert England though... just sayin'.

Hopefully better than Friday the 13th remake...

att he end of the day, I'd rather them make new movies with new ideas...

Sick of all the remakes. Exact same thing with better graphics (which in some cases makes it less believable in my eyes).

I hear that.


Seems like everytime you turn around these days another re-make is on the horizon.   It wouldn't be so bad... ya know.. if they weren't butchering what made the originals so great in the first place.   Today it's all about effects and the new things they can do with 'em.   I remember back when a movie was made or broken on it's actors.   If you had solid actors you could tell almost any story and make it look good.   The actors actually WORKED back in the day. 

Today?  Not so much.   I mean sure they're there...however, they don't have to work as hard as they used to because cgi makes so many things possible.  It's made them lazy I think.  In the end, the effects are real nice to look at and make you go wow... but what's that worth if the story and acting are crap?

Give me good grade A acting over suped up special FX any day.


Plus... It wouldn't kill for Hollywood to get some orginal ideas either.  I'd like to actually see NEW movies, not rehashes.

Hate to bump this, but I am a massive Freddy fan and I'm very excited for this movie.

From the trailer, Freddy seems much darker.
In the first movie Freddy was silly in an insane way, like the Joker. The second one had him more aggressive. The rest had him more like a comedian and it worked best in Freddy vs Jason where he was actually funny.

I accept that Robert isn't playing him. From what I've seen so far, Earle's doing a good job.

NOW...they seem to be changing things a bit. Notice how when they're chasing him he screams, "I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING!!!". Is he being wrongfully accused in this one or is he not SO evil as he was during the trial in the Freddy's Nightmares tv show, Nightmare 6 and Freddy vs Jason when they show him getting burned?
In the remake, his makeup is much more realistic to what massive burn victims look like. He looks like he has melted. The only problem is, that's what burn victims look like when they HEAL! Part 1's makeup had the look of a fresh burn where the flesh is still falling off the face.

Nancy's father, Lt. Thompson,  is not in the movie. Why remove such a pivotal character?
I also noticed that they seemed to have added things from parts 2 and 3.

In conclusion, I can't wait. Seeing as I can watch and enjoy part 5, they could basically do anything with the exception of New Nightmare and I will probably love it.

We don't care about bumping topics here :)

I agree with what you said about the makeup...I like the fresh burn look more too

But I like the fact that Earle is playing him :) he was brilliant in  :watchmen: so I know he is gonna do an awesome job

I also noticed from the way the trailer is set up... it's looking like they're not making Nancy the main character as in the original.  It's looking like it's the blond girl (possibly this is the girl filling Tina's role?).   I could be wrong, cause you can't really get all that much from trailers in most cases... just saying that the way the trailer was set up they were focusing on the blond.

btw.. interesting change IF they ARE making Krueger falsely accused in the remake.   And I don't mean "interesting" in a good way.   The fact that Freddy was a child molester/killer who got off on a technical screw up in paperwork, forcing the parents of Elm street to band together and torch him for retribution is a HUGE part of Freddy's character and who he is.  If they've changed that to make him an Innocent man who was hunted and put to death for something he didn't do... well then how can you view Freddy as the Evil Killer we know and love today?   Doesn't that sort of make him exactly the opposite?  A Victim?   Some might even say he would deserve to get revenge if that were the case.

Freddy is supposed to be evil... and he was supposed to have been an evil and perverted man LONG before he died.   

I'm really hoping that him yelling "I didn't do anything!!" is nothing more than a desperate (yet feeble) attempt to save his skin and he did in fact commit the crimes he's infamous for.   They have to keep that much intact or the character isn't Freddy.. Period.  Just a cheap copy cat.

I think it's popular to bring back characters like this and make them look like a victim a little bit right now....like they did with Jason in the VS movie

I think it's stupid to try and make social statements in hack and slash horror movies.....in fact the ONLY horror movie/s that ever made you think IMO are George romeros zombie stuff. In fact some if that was brilliant

dunno. i mean im curious about it but the guy from Watchmen isnt Creepy enough for me.
I mean a horror flick hasnt actually scared me in ages but to make me say "oh wow that dude looks crazy".....Or "d*mn imagin some sh*t like that??".....Directors have to really try harder than this.

It looks cool dont get me wrong but i think they coulda got another dude.

although The Guy is a older he looks perfect for a new freddy
