Oh...Hell Yes!

I was on dlisted.com & came across this little beauty...


Yup...looks like it's true. Michael Bay (producer of the Transformers movies) has remade Nightmare on Elm Street (2010). The promo looks pretty damn good but I have some seriously high expectations for this remake because this is the one movie (besides Child's Play) that kept me up for months. I was so freaking scared to close my eyes & if I would fall asleep I'd wake up every couple of hours just to make sure I was still alive, lol.

I'm a little upset that they didn't get Robert Englund to play Freddy because he was great but I guess when you're remaking a movie you sorta want to go with your own version of the story. Hm...in my opinion no one will play a better Freddy than he did but I'll have to see how the new guys does.


So far there's no official release date but it will be coming out sometime in 2010. I really wish they'd release a almost pee yourself horror movie on or around Halloween. Most of my candy is gone by 8pm & then I'm stuck doing nada for the rest of the night except watch re-runs of old Elvira movies (which are still pretty freakin' cool). It would be nice to go watch a horror movie on the big screen though.

I love leaving the theater with that ball in your stomach, where you're left wondering if there's gonna be axe murderer in the back seat of your car or you keep looking through your rear view mirror just make sure someone isn't following you home. Maybe I'm a bit morbid but I like the gut wrenched feeling a great horror movie leaves you with. Hopefully this one will be one of those & not be a total let down.

*fingers crossed*

  1. Nightmare on Elm Street 2 was the first horror movie I ever saw ... when I was like nine or ten. Scared the bejesus out of me.

    I may watch this for nostalgic purposes.

  4. Oh! I haven't heard this yet! I'm frightened and excited at the same time.

    That movie gave me the worst nightmares of all time. I swear it is the source of all my sleep issues now.

    I actually can't watch the trailer. I'll freak out.

  7. ooooOOOOoooh...

    I'm way interested.

    It helps that I never saw the really good horror movies of the 80's and 90's. Strict parents. So it's all new to me.

    :D

  8. Can't do horror. I hide under blankets or in my husbands lap (which is probably why he likes to make me watch them.....sneaky man.)

  9. This actually looks pretty decent, although the chances of getting my husband to go see this with me are slim to none! Maybe we'll wait for a Netflix night when it's on dvd!

  10. With the current special effects expertise they have now, this is going to be absolutely amazing!

  12. it's true. i work at warner brothers and have read the script. it was pretty good, but considering how i have never seen other nightmare movies, i didn't have anything to compare it to. the trailer looks better than the words on paper did!
