It inspired me to implement something new, something I enjoy on other people’s blogs: a theme day. So, I introduce to you Movie Monday! From here on out, when and where applicable, I’ll be making Haunts Jaunts to the movies on Mondays.
Our first feature is the new Nightmare on Elm Street.
Since remaking horror movies always seems to be hot, and since it’s been 25 years or so since the original Nightmare on Elm Street hit the big screen, apparently it’s time to introduce a whole new generation of movie goers to the story of Krueger.
Nightmare on Elm Street (the first one and the third one in particular, but I admit I saw them all) was my favorite from the ’80s slasher series. I liked Freddy’s wisecracks. But after a while (like by number four, maybe even before that) the premise was wearing thin.
The new movie seems to introduce a new aspect to Krueger’s character we didn’t see much of before. Or at least that’s the impression the trailer gives. I’m kind of curious to see what they’ve done with this current version.What about you? What are your thoughts?
