  1. I thought that this was the worst Raping of a Classic That Platnum Dunes has done so far..not a single good thing to say about this piece of shit and Platnum dunes i hope will choke on it.. they really need to apologize to the fans for this abomination

  2. Okay so my full in detail review is really really long so I post the short version and the link but be warned the link may have a spoiler or two..

    I really enjoyed the movie, it didn’t scare me like I was hoping it would, but I did jump and gasp throughout most this movie, and the voice for Freddy this time around was part of the reason I was doing that.

    So even though I had no trouble sleeping after seeing this film I think what they wanted to do with this film was kind of done, for once PD, kind of got it right, they said they wanted to make a darker scarier movie, they for sure made it darker, the best thing was cutting most the humor out.

    I give this movie a three out of five, if you’ve got the extra cash and can get the a movie complex before six O’clock, then its worth paying to see it.

    Just remember this is an R-movie because of scary sequences, mild gore, and some language, please keep that in mind if you have small children who you where thinking of taking to see this movie.

    Actually scratch that, think if you saw the original as a child, how it made you feel, because chance are that’s how this one might make a kid under fourteen feel, this is after all the Freddy of their generation. My lost thing is:

    What the fuck is up with that freaking plot twist? Honestly, with what they did there, how can they keep the Franchise going? I don’t really understand how it could be possible, I mean I kind of get it but not really so any ideas?

  3. I seen the movie at Midnight, and I enjoyed it, for the most part I have a lot I dis-liked and some I liked.. I know I’m new here and my reviews will be no where near as good as the above post are, but would anyone be entrested in what I thought of the movie?

  4. Interesting reviews, but did you guys really need two? One is negative and the other is positive. It seems like you’re kind of covering ground there for the future or something. Oh well I intend on seeing it, I’m just not in a big rush. My enthusiasm has worn down considerably in the face of bigger better movies that aren’t remakes. And Platinum Dunes always sucks. Always. They’ve yet to churn out a quality film. I’m seeing it mainly for the visuals and Jackie Earl Haley’s interpretation. I’ve been on Freddy overload for the last two months writing articles for Crave, reviews for my site, looking at promo material, so after this wears down I’m going to cleanse my palette with some Friday the 13th sequels. I am always in Jason’s corner. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.

    • Dude … first you complain about us “being lazy” with our reviews, and now you complain that we’ve given you guys two for what’s likely to be the biggest remake of the year! That’s it! Where’s my machete! HAVE AT YOU! *shadow boxes* ;)

      • Who’s complaining? I’m a reader making an observation about a site I frequent and basically thinking aloud. I just throw in my three cents, you don’t have to pick it up and run with it. I observerate, what can I say?

          • It’s always nice when a girl says she likes my vernacular!

    • We often have two reviews for bigger films like this. We did the same thing for PD’s Friday the 13th, too — one positive (Nomad) & one negative (Potts).

          • Oh, well I’m an idiot then and you guys should repost it considering it’s in theatres now. At least one anyway. I didn’t start paying attention to the movie until recently. I’m off to read.

          • It’s in theaters tomorrow, so I have to fucking see it tonight. If you find me weeping in a corner sucking my thumb, just sing lullabies and hope for the best.

          • Terminal… When you do see this film pm me, as I would be interested to know what you think of it; or post me a link to a review of yours… PMG

          • PMG which movie NOES or Human Centipede? Either way, you shall get a link from this self-promoting whore. *spanks butt*

          • I’ll take both, but more interested in the “Human Centipede”.

          • You got it, dude!

        “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

    • When I saw two reviews listed for NOES, I just KNEW Terminal would somewhere be asking why there were two reviews of the same film… Wish I’d wagered some money on that! ;)

      • Bet high next time. You’ll become wealthy very quickly.
