BREAKING NEWS: 1…2…Freddy’s Coming For You…….AGAIN!……..Krueger is getting another remake!


In a real world, many people will learn from their mistakes, but in a film world, there is just no logic or sense!

After the disastrous remake of A Nightmare In Elm Street in 2010 which was panned by critics and hated by nearly every fan of the much loved franchise, New Line Cinema have announced that they are once more bringing another new fresh attempt at the iconic character created by Wes Craven and played with relish and brilliance from Robert Englund,

I mean why?………..why?………..why?……………..

Interesting, Platinum Dunes who are responsible for a lot of this remake lark and played a heavy part in the last attempt,  aren’t listed anywhere in the proceedings, instead  Orphan writer David Leslie Johnson has been confirmed as the guy responsible for coming up with a new way of bringing the man from our nightmares back to the big screen.

Toby Emmerich, Walter Hamada, and Dave Neustadter will oversee for New Line.

While Orphan was good not brilliant horror, Johnson has been dipping his toes back in the genre of late after penning  James Wan’s Conjuring sequel The Conjuring: The Enfield Poltergeist and Disney’s horror Something Wicked This Way Comes.

I’ve mentioned a few times on HorrorCultFilms in how difficult it is to remake Freddy because he is only one of the few bogeymen who does not wear a mask.  Anyone can play Michael and Jason -even though no one beats Nick Castle and Kane Hodder, but because Englund is so synonymous in the role, any attempts of a remake has already got a big negative to start with!

Expect this story to become bigger when casting and plot details emerge!

Since my mother sat me down at the age of five years of age and watched a little called Halloween, I have been hooked on horror. There is no other genre that gets me excited and takes me to the edge of entertainment. I watch everything from old, new, to cheap and blockbusters, but I promise all my readers that I will always give an honest opinion, and I hope whoever reads this review section, will find a film that they too can love as much as I do! Have fun reading, and please DO HAVE NIGHTMARES!!!!!!
