Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is a really great idea that is miscast and very poorly executed. [Read more...]
The remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street isn’t particularly scary or tense, definitely not original, and almost completely absent of character depth and plot; but it looks pretty good, doesn’t dilly dally , and gets a fun (outside a couple of eye rolling one liners) turn by Jackie Earl Haley as Krueger.
The film opens with a dozing high school student, Dean, in a diner and he begins seeing Freddy Krueger in his dreams and has apparently been avoiding him by staying awake for three days. When his girlfriend Kris shows up he dozes off again and ends up on the wrong side of Freddy’s madness. Soon Kris and a couple other of loosely connected friends begin dreaming of Freddy as well and they must rush to get to the bottom of these dreams before they fall asleep and become the next victim in Freddy’s games.
