A Nightmare on Elm Street- Remake vs Orginal.

"In the dreams of his victims, a spectral child murderer stalks the children of the members of the lynch mob that killed him." The plot is pretty simple but terrifying. What if the things in your nightmares could hurt you? Even kill you, for me it was one of the most terrifying things ever seeing as I had nightmares every night. For a while I hated the movies due to how much they scared me..But around my teenage years I began to rewatch them, soon he became my favorite horror villain.
Mainly because not only was he pretty creepy, but he was full of puns. Just the best kind of puns there were. Such as “Welcome to prime time, bitch.” When he smashed a chicks head into a tv. Though his old make up didn't really make him look like a burn victim...It just made him look insanely creep. They did kind of suck the life out of the franchise as it just kept going like pretty much every 80's slasher movie there is, but thats okay. I fucking loved 80's movies. A child murder filled with bad puns and filled with evil

Then they made Freddy vs. Jason. I knew it would be pretty bad..His make  up took a turn for the worst and looked like a crappy slimy mask.  But it was slightly enjoyable, there were plenty of puns and silly kruger time. Then I heard they were going to make a remake..I was kind of excited because I'm a huge fan of freddy. Then I saw the commercials..and his new special effects..were just fucking awful.







...He looked like a fish. I know they were trying to go for the realistic burn victim thing..but I think he just looked stupid. I watched it anyways just to see what it was...And I was extremely disappointed. They completely changed who he was. He was no longer a child murder..They just made him a pedophile.  He no longer made bad puns or had fun with his job..All he did was molest a bunch of kids, take naked pictures of him and then killed them in lame ways in their dreams. Plus it was filled with so much CGI it just looked like total shit, the characters were boring and there was just nothing enjoyable about that movie at all.

In conclusion, people need to stop ruining classic movies. The remake sucked.

  4. Yep. Re makes suck. But the new one did shed some different light that made the original have more sense. Even then, they shouldn't have done it.

  5. I've never been a big fan of slasher films so I wasn't that impressed with the original series of films. I don't know if I'll see the remake. Maybe.

  20. It's true, if you want true originally these days watch Korean films, they are the best thing going right now. Here a few starters: The Chaser, Oldboy, Save the Green Planet, Memories of Murder, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, and many more...
