A Nightmare on Elm Street in HD
Saw this at Movie-Con in the summer and I thought then that it seemed to be covering all the iconic bases stylishly and slavishly but it was hard to tell if it was going to be any good or not. Director Samuel Bayer has a great track record in commercials and promos and has been threatening to break through into features for a while now. (He directed the video for Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit which that brief shot in the classroom reminded me of.) And Jackie Earle Haley is a good choice as Freddy. Let's hope it's a marked improvement on the same company's Friday The 13th remake. Couldn't be any worse.
