A Nightmare on Elm Street ( 2010 )

Having recently rewatched  A Nightmare on Elm Street I thought I'd give the recent remake another viewing and to be honest I kind of wish I didn't.

I don't hate the remake but it's very bland despite the casting of the usually excellent Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy.

For all the technical advances that have been achieved since the original movies was made it's still the superior movie and it's a real shame because I do think the remake introduces a couple of interesting ideas but they never really follow though and use them properly.

I seriously doubt I'll ever bother watching this movie again and sadly I guess this attempt at a reboot has probably killed the franchise for good.
