    Yup. It's not a sequel, it's a remake of the original.

    I'm a big fan of horror, but I don't know how I feel about it after seeing the preview a couple days ago.

    Let's put it this way. If you look at the film Texas Chainsaw Massacre from 03 or Halloween from 2007 the films are actually very entertaining. I hate the Stigma that is associated with the term "remake". These aren't bad Newline sequels meant to just milk the fans out of money and put garbage in a straight to video box. These remakes are meant to excite fans about their obsession/passion again and gain a future generation audience. I for one have always been a HUGE Nightmare on Elm Street fan and when I heard that there are talks of a remake coming out, I agree, it seems like why would you remake a movie that was made to perfection in the 1980s. The question is, why not?? with so many advances in movie technology, horror movies could be so much more to their timeless 1970s/80s era counterparts. As I finish rambling I am just excited that we can be blessed with classic psychotics like Jason Voorhies and Michael Myers again rather than Jeepers Creepers,Some fisherman with a hook and bad chucky sequel after bad chuck sequel consisting of our new "classic" slasher movies. Saw IV and V are terrible, stop making these movies.

    I was just reading about the new Nightmare on Elm Street. It kind of sucks that Robert Englund won't return as Freddy as that's his role, but Englund has said that Billy Bob Thornton will play Freddy in this version. I don't know...it might work, but I just can't see Karl Childers as a child killer.

    Wow. That is a terrible choice for Freddy. Where did you hear this from? Link??? Too bad Heath isn't around to take some of that Joker role into Freddy.
