    It doesn't look bad, it looks kind of decent. But i think the new Freddy might work good, i mean if it worked for Heath Ledger being better then Jack Nicholson as Joker then i think Jackie will be as good as Freddy.

    And as for horror movie remakes, has anyone even seen the following?

    The Thing.
    The Fly.
    The Blob.
    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (197.
    The Toolbox Murders.
    2001 Maniacs.
    The Wizard of Gore.
    Cat People.
    Dawn of the Dead.
    Night of the Living Dead (1990).
    House on Haunted Hill.
    House of Wax (1953).
    My Bloody Valentine 3D.
    The Hills Have Eyes.
    The Crazies.
    The Last House on The Left.
    The Ring.
    Peter Jackson's King Kong.

    All excellent remakes of the genre done right.

    This could be decent like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, The Grudge or even Friday The 13th (Barely a remake of the original, it felt like actually part 12 then a real remake). I hope it's not a dud like "Psycho" (God that movie was painful), "Stepfather", "The Fog", "When a Stranger Calls", "Black XMas" or some.


    Whoa whoa whoa! The Thing and The Fly were kickass remakes that blows away their dull originals out of the water as they were done by great directors. I also adore The Hills Have Eyes, Cat People, The Blob, King Kong (2005), The Ring, Toolbox Murders, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Sutherland version), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday The 13th (But you are so right, it was more like part 12 then a real remake), My Bloody Valentine 3D, House of Wax (1953 one, not the Paris Hilton version), Dawn of the Dead, Night of the Living Dead, Last House on The Left and The Crazies. I haven't seen 2001 Maniacs or The Wizard of Gore, i have seen and own the original HG Lewis originals.

    I don't think nobody could be better then Englund but after being amazed by Haley's performance in Watchmen, he could pull off a new Freddy much like Heath Ledger improved on Jack Nicholson as Joker even though Nicholson was good.

    I think your right but did David Cronenberg, John Carpenter and Brian DePalma did their remakes for money or for art?

    I agree with those that say that this one might actually be psychologicly freaky, or in other words, actually scary for some people. For me, I absolutely love the original series, but never found it scary (ok, I mean when I was like 8 and my dad scratched his hand down my door to tease me I was scared but i'm talking teen and up) and felt it was more of a pure cheese kind of horror movie like most of the other 80s horror movies. So while I adore Robert Englund and the original, i'm looking forward to watching this one to see what they do with it.

    I liked the first half of Rob Zombie's Halloween and how they showed what it may have been like for Michael growing up and how he got to that point. I thought the second part was pretty boring because it was basicly what we had already seen, but it's not going to stop me from watching any other remakes or reboots or whatever they will be considered to be, because i'm always curious what other minds can do with the plots.

    Alright, i'll admit it right now. I have no shame, I will watch any remake, reboot, re-imagining, whatever of any horror movie, cartoon we grew up with, whatever. Will they be works of art? Probably not. Are they entertainment? Yep.

    I got stuck on the first two back at mid 80's... I hope it turns out good... it deserve a good remake.

    But is Michael Bay the producer[?]

    Well, Michael Bay is the producer...

    mmh I don't like to rant off before watching a movie... but this pose as a problem to me after transformers flicks.

    *what would he do... put lazers/dynamites in Freddy's claws? meh*

    Michael Bay directing and Michael Bay producing are two totally different things.. IMO, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre was pretty good.. As a producer, he gives his directors the creative freedom they need.. As a director, it's nothing but explosion, dick and fart joke, 'splosion, animals humping, EXPLOSION!!! Sprinkle in some bad dialogue and some horrific acting on top of all of those explosions and 360 camera angles and that is his version of directing.. As long as it's someone else behind the camera, i'll give it a shot

    ^ Indeed... its not the same thing... but after what he did to Transformers I'm a bit skeptic... even if he is 5 meters away from the camera!

    Anyhow, will give it a shot.

    I'm actually looking forward to it. While i'd love them to make just one more with Robert Englund, I really actually like what i've seen so far in the previews. Of course, they do tend to show all the good stuff in the previews so we'll see how good it really is when it comes out.

    It's like this. You can't have a Friday The 13th without Kane Hodder playing Jason, and you can't have a Freddy movie without Robert Englund. It's just not right.

    All he needs to do is have a good voice after all we can't tell who's under the make up.
    Always playing as Yoshi since 1995!

    Maybe I'll see it, maybe I won't...at least not until it's on DVD. Besides if I must make a comparison, I've always liked Friday The 13th movies more. I think a killer whose face you can't see and doesn't speak is a hell of a lot more intimidating than the clown of killers, Freddy Krueger.

    Except Kruger wasn't always a clown. The original film he was a boogeyman. The remake is bringing him back to that.

    Things went downhill fast for the Elm Street series. He was made more of a clown in Part 2. Which was a mistake.

    Yea, it was something like that. I have to re-watch the series... it has been a long time since.
