I can’t wait for the ‘Scream’ remake by idontknowmuch

Variety reports that New Line Cinema is talking about putting together a remake of “Nightmare on Elm Street.” You know, because remakes are doing so well lately.

Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form have been set by New Line to relaunch the movie series centered on the iconic killer, who haunts the dreams of teenagers and kills them in their sleep.

Wait, Michael Bay is involved? Then this is sure to be awesome!!!

This news comes after it was announced that the same team will begin work on a ‘Friday the 13th’ remake this spring. Recently, other horror classics from my childhood that were remade and shit on include ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ and ‘Halloween.’

I understand that its difficult to come up with a new way to do the slasher flick. Also, unless your film resembles a snuff film, its not going to stand up to the gore included in pieces of crap like ‘Hostel’ or ‘Turistas’; therefore, maybe its safe to just ratchet up the blood in a story which has already been proven to bring in customers. But there has to be some original script floating around out there which includes the suspense of the old ‘Halloween’ movies and the right amount of gore.
