Horror remakes are actively hated among most in the horror world. Why remake a movie that was perfect the first time? That being said, they are instant moneymakers at the box office and the “Nightmare on Elm Street” remake was no exception grossing over $120 million worldwide on a $35 million budget. This film instantly became the “most hated” of the major horror franchise remakes. Tim Schilling investigates in his tweet by tweet review that this new “Nightmare” may not be as bad as it seems.
Thoughts before the film:
Finishing off my ANOES series of reviews with the remake of the movie that started it all. I do like this one for the record.
Thoughts while watching:
0:04 Mmm Rooney Mara.
0:09 I love the original Freddy, but the one in the remake isn’t bad. He’s so creepy.
0:14 It’s impossible to top the original scene when Freddy’s face goes through the wall.
0:20 I love the scene when the chick falls asleep in class, the whole thing just looks great.
0:30 Somethings in this movie are done better than the original and some way way worse.
0:36 His computer just went into sleep mode,since this is supposed to be a modern reimage would Freddy go after that?
0:42 I’d be the first one to die in one of these movies. I love sleep too much.
0:48 I don’t know how I feel about the pedo Freddy backstory.
0:53 Why would you tell your daughter she was abused as child in front of her friends? Bitch move.
1:00 Freddy in this one just isn’t on Elm Street, he can be wherever these kids moved to.
1:03 I don’t think micro naps are a real thing… Are they?
1:07 I bet they were just in a Walgreens. Ew.
1:27 Come on Freddy just die.
1:28 I love that nancy says you’re in my world now bitch instead of Freddy.
I don’t think the remake of #ANightmareOnElmStreet is bad at all. You can’t really compare it to the original because there are a lot of things different about it. It was kind of a remake of a few different Freddy films. The movie looked great too,very dark, & decent acting.
