I don’t know what 80s horror movie fetish Michael Bay has going on, but he’s at it again, producing the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, coming to theaters this April. Despite a great casting choice with Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) as Freddy Kruger, I have no doubt this movie will make some coin and then fade into the Hall of Suck with the rest of Bay’s scary remakes. Yeah, in case you’ve forgotten, he’s remade The Amityville Horror, The Hitcher, The Texas Chainsaw Masscre and Friday the 13th.
What do you think? Am I off base with thinking this will suck? Have you seen any of the other remakes, and if so, what did you think? Also, are there certain films that should be untouchable in terms of remakes and are any of the horror movies listed in my post on that roll?
