There are a few very fine things in life. Alcohol, HipHop, Movies and Whoures. Given we appreciate all these fine things the next news is gonna make those who also appreciate life’s wonders, pretty hyped. If you do or don’t know, Platinum Dunes has rebooted the Freddy franchise and this year, April I believe to be precise, we get a brand new script, a brand new Freddy, and a brand new Nightmare on Elm Street flick. The storyline (what storyline?) is the usual, the movie opens with Freddy Kruegar as a normal man, being chased by the residents of Elm Street kinda like Frankenstein was in all the old films, knives stakes etc. Freddy runs to an abandoned building which is subsequently set on fire, resulting in him becoming, visually, the Freddy Kruegar we all know and love. Plot follows him just like back in the day, stalking the children of Elm Street and using their nightmares to spring to life and kill them. As a horror fan I’m excited to see this, the reboot of the Friday the 13th franchise was a good one and showed that new life can be made outta the old classics, which is what the genre needs given the recent standard of films being made. Effects are gonna be far better than the old fashioned ones given the advances in techinology since then, and I’m told the character of Freddy is gonna be a lot darker and sinister, which is a relief given how fucking camp he got in the last films. Here’s the latest trailer, enjoy.
