Thread: the original NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and its sequels

  1. #61
    I'm re-watching Part 2. It's held up pretty well and it's one of the better films in the franchise. Though, I seem to be in the minority here who thinks Part 3 is the best so what do I know?

    Has a lot of great moments, great transformation scene, I love the looks of Freddy's claw once he's taken possession of Jesse. The pool scene is dumb but really awesome at the same time.

    Englund recently did an interview in which he talks about the future of Freddy...

    He thinks he's too old to play Freddy in a subsequent film, but not Freddy in a prequel? Isn't that backwards?

    A prequel would be interesting.

    I'd be down for a prequel if done right. That idea Englund mentioned in that interview about it half being about Freddy’s crimes then having the legal case coming to the forefront sounds pretty good, sort of like Friedkin's Rampage (1987). The only thing that’s iffy about that is everyone already knows the outcome of the trail and what happens to Freddy after so it might prove somewhat challenging to make it intense but if done right it’d be a great watch I think.

    Craven would need to direct it too for me to even bother.

    Meh, prequel is just a molester/killer flick with a crispy ending. I know the franchise has seen low moments, but this direction would be the worst yet. I want a villain that kills you in your sleep in your most feared fashion. Adding "depth" to this character blows away his mystique and makes him less scary. Look at the whole "Son of a hundred maniacs" bullshit they added on. The first? Holy fuck, creepy. Then he became TV and they had to add more, like the Hellraiser flicks. Creepy, evil villains for no reason is perfect horror.
    It's A NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST not SILENCE OF THE LAMBS.
