Billy Bob Thornton is the new Freddy Krueger in the upcoming Elm Street remake. :lol:

It's a Michael Bay movie. :lol:

Terrible.

I'm too lazy to look it up, but hasn't Robert Englund played all the other Freddy roles?

Those movies used to scare the piss out of me when I was little, but now they're just silly. Same goes for the Friday the 13th movies. Actually, the first Freddy is still pretty cool. :lol:

My all-time favorite of the genre would have to be the first Halloween movie. (franking) classic.

Freddy was cool even when the movies were lame.

They are remaking Friday the 13th too. They are taking the first three movies and merging them together/remaking them. There is a trailer floating out there somewhere I've read.

Yup. It still owns and is my favorite as well.

To a point, I can kind of understand the remakes of the horror classics. Some of these characters are iconic, and they have to be pulled in the 21st century. Sometimes so much time has passed, that it is hard to pick up where the olds left off or the back stories are so dated that it is hard to do anything but reboot them. But, it is often not done well at all.

With that said, I thought I would hate the Halloween remake, and it was not bad at all. Not the original classic, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Yeah, it's ridiculous. Anything for a buck.

If you're short on funds or going through rough times just make a Freddie movie. Apparently anyone can do it.
