Nightmare on Elm Street
Just when I'd finished washing the taste of the wholly rancid A Nightmare on Elm Street remake from my mouth, our friends at Warner Bros. go and set a home video date for the 2010 retelling of Freddy Krueger's first stab at Elm Street's children.
After the very controversial Friday the 3rd Taint episode of Dinner for Fiends reared its head last year, we've all been bracing for one thing ... just how bad the announced remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street would be. Well. It certainly didn't disappoint.
A new Dinner for Fiends lambasting the 2010 A Nightmare on Elm Street is on its way shortly, but to help tide you over until then, we have Trembles' take on the Platinum Dunes remake. As you might expect, it ain't pretty!
Having been bent over the proverbial barrel by Platinum Dunes’ groan-inducing desecration of the classic A Nightmare on Elm Street, we can at least turn our attention to tomorrow’s release of Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy to wash the foul taste of failure from our mouths. <
The actual box office receipts for the weekend have been counted and recounted, and yes, A Nightmare on Elm Street slashed the competition as expected, and it even did a little better than previous estimates projected, winding up with $32.9 million.

Remember last year when the equally as abysmal Friday the 13th remake made bank at the box office, raking in just over $40 million its first weekend? Sequel talk was on fire! The following weekend Friday dropped a monumental 80%. Sequel talk is now dead. Yet, we're hearing some all too familiar echoes coming out of the Platinum Dunes camp.
One of the most rewarding feelings in the world came for the makers of Never Sleep Again this past weekend when the entire crew gathered with many stars from the franchise to celebrate the mega-documentary's release. The faces of the fans who showed up totally excited and happy to get their claws into some real Freddy Krueger mayhem after their experiences with the remake made every single *ahem* sleepless night helping to put this thing together all the more worth it.
So, how did Platinum Dunes' revamped Freddy do on opening day at the box office compared to their 2009 version of Jason? It turns out he trounced the competition but couldn't quite top the numbers posted by PD's Friday the 13th redux.
This weekend one of the single most beloved cinema icons returns to the big screen to terrorize an entire new generation of fans. Sounds enticing, doesn't it? Well, of course it is, but the question beckons: Is it worth your time and money? We've got two different reviews to help you make your decision.
