(Recurring) Nightmare on Elm Street
Don’t answer the phone and, for the love of all that is good and pure, definitely don’t fall asleep – the knife-fingered Freddy Krueger is back with spleen-slicing vengeance in, yes you’ve guessed it, yet another Hollywood re-make.
Wes Craven’s 1984 cult horror classic is to be re-vamped, with the infamous Robert Englund to be replaced by Super-gruff Rorscach himself, Jackie Earle Haley.
After aptly displaying his capacity for carnage in Watchmen and re-confirming the simple wood-axe as the tireless freedom fighter’s weapon of choice, how will Haley fare with the legendary “Glove’o’gore”?
One thing is for sure, twenty-first century special effects can’t possibly re-create the beauty of the gobbling bed, or the wonder of the incredible flying corpse that audiences were wowed with in the original. Sigh…still it’ll definitely be worth a look.
