trailer break: ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…


I guess we’re supposed to feel sorry for this new Freddy Krueger? Interesting…

Compare to the trailer for the original film: that one looks much scarier than this new one does.

A Nightmare on Elm Street opens in the U.S. and Canada on April 30, and in the U.K. on May 7.

    Saw it today at the Tuesday discount rate, and wow was I glad I didn’t pay full price, even though I’d been looking forward to it. It’s terrible. Not remotely up to the original, and not even good on its own. It’s like a *worse* version of the American “Pulse” remake, all murky photography (without even the aesthetic of the “Pulse” remake) and thoroughly disjointed pacing. And what’s worse still is how the film diminishes Nancy’s character, from the definite protagonist and heroine of the original to this third-billed, barely-there, listless waif who can’t rescue herself. And they even undermine her mother’s role, too!
