So last year we were talking Friday the 13th…and soon we have a remake of Nightmare on Elm Street, so we should go back to our friend Freddy–the classic version. Here, have the trailer:
I guess my problem with the idea of a remake is that, apart from probably being more gory, what exactly is it going to bring to the table? I mean…besides Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy, which, admittedly might be fun. But still, I mean: we know Haley can do the role…it was just surprising fun to see Meek Guy From V turn into the ultimate scarred, finger-bladed killer. For me at least.
Anyway, here have a commercial from Italy after the jump while we ponder all of that.
Okay, well, I’ve pondered it and frankly, the remake is going to have to work very hard to be scarier than this.
In our tradition of Day 11 slasher flicks, two years ago it was the original Halloween.
