    A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (2010)

    The one thing I hear people say about why this reimagining was made was to give the film franchise a no holds barred, no one liners addition that was truly scary. Robert Englund's orignal performances was said to have gone comical instead of horrifying and I do agree with that statement, but so many people seem to forget that the original NOES is none of those things. The Wes Craven masterpiece is by far one of the scariest films around and this remake does nothing to up the original. Sure Freddy is given a background that keeps you guessing if he did or didn't so the crime, but then why would we really want to know? Also, this remake shows no actual dreamlike phantasmagorical scenes. Freddy is just a man instead of a apparition who can stretch his arms and cut off his own fingers with no side affects. Englund's first performance is kept in shadow for most of the film where in this one you see him in the first scene of the movie - no lead up. It isn't a bad movie and is decently acted, but there is no way this is anywhere close to recreating or upiing the game over Craven's film.
