Default 1, 2, Freddy's Coming For You.. Again

Anyone else looking forward to the Nightmare on Elm Street remake? I'm really excited about Jackie Earl Haley's performance as Freddy, should be an interesting take on the character. My only issue is the fact that Michael Bay has something to do with it, the only concept I find scarier than Freddy Kruger invading my dreams is Michael Bay ruining one of my favorite horror flicks... again.

Yeah, Platinum Dunes (Bay's company) seems to be specialising in resurrecting 1970s/1980s horror franchises and making dog's dinner's out of them.

The trailer is pretty good (though they usually are) but the proof is usually in the pudding and most of them haven't been that great so far.

Oooh great! Another remake (comment dripping with sarcasm for those who don't recognise it)

I also hate how they're renaming most of the major characters (aside from Nancy)

I was looking forward to hearing the new actress shout out "GleeeeeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEeeEEEeEEEEEeeeEEEen !" before seeing a waterfall of blood shoot up from his bed.

Oh well, looks like I'll have to settle on Quentin.

The trailer looks good. I don't mind remakes. The only thing that was a bit disappointing was the way Freddy's voice sounded and his face didn't look right.
