IT’S TIME FOR KRUEGER TO RETURN TO ELM STREET

Published

on

So I’m sitting at work today, eating lunch, flipping through channels trying to find something to watch. I must have passed through a 100 boring options. Then, I come across ‘Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors.’ YES PLEASE! So I really only stopped because I can barely remember what happened in the movie, but I remember loving it as a kid. After looking up the release date while writing this, I see that I was only 6 when this movie came out and the majority of you reading this weren’t even close to being born. But this article isn’t about “Elm Street Dream Warriors.” It’s about bringing back one of the most famous horror icons of all time. And bringing him back the right way!

One thing about Krueger, he didn’t f’around… Okay, well actually he did. In fact that’s all he did.  Freddy Krueger is a serial killer of children, who was burned to death by the people who lived in his town, that found out about his sick nature. He returned after death to wreak havoc on the children of his killers in their dreams. Krueger’s demonic powers stem from the fear of his child victims.

Nightmare on Elm Street that stared Robert Englund was the first of it’s kind. My reasoning behind this statement is that, It was one of the first films that blended horror and comedy. Remember, I was 6 when “Dream Warriors” came out which was the 3rd installment and I was excited to see it.

‘Nightmare on Elm Street was the perfect blend of Horror and comedy. It actually pushed the boundaries of imagination and what could be possible for the horror film genre. Just imagine one of the scariest movie villains of all-time, yet you almost wanted to root for him. We always knew Freddy had to lose but we loved to see him win the small victories.

“Nightmare on Elm Street” tried to reboot back in 2010 starring Jackie Earle and was met with some harsh criticism. It’s tough to reboot classics, especially horror.

But I’m saying it’s time for another chance. The great Robert Englund has expressed that he won’t be returning for any future Krueger franchises and also his disinterest in the rebooted material.

But in an era of Reboots, remakes and rehashes, how can we let this one go? Heck, we’ve had two different “Spider-Men” in 4yrs.

“Nightmare on Elm Street could easily transcend time and be one of those movie franchises that pulls itself into modern cinema. Today’s audience is okay with rated R movies, aka ‘DEADPOOL!’

Blood, gore and violence means nothing to us in the modern age. Now throw in comedy! You basically have Deadpool, but he is trying to kill everyone in their dreams and everyone is trying to kill him.

Tell me, who should direct and who should star as Krueger in a new ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ Film?
