Remake Review: A Nightmare on Elm Street

PhotoGrid_1383256288072

Adaptations & Remakes is an ongoing feature where I take a movie or a book and compare it to its remake and/or adaptation.

Happy Halloween, everyone! If you’ve been checking on the blog throughout the day, you’ll know that earlier in the day, Tiny applied his newfound appreciation for the Halloween franchise to compare Carpenter’s vision with Zombie’s depiction. Then a little later, Mike lent his slasher expertise to tackle the original Friday the 13th against its modern day counterpart.

Now I am here for the sacred final post to close out the holiday season. I’m comparing Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street against the 2010 remake featuring Rorschach himself: Jackie Earle Haley. Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Of course, you can find more of Mike and Tiny’s Shocktober contributions (Shocktributions, if you will) on the Shocktober page and don’t forget you can follow them and me on Twitter and like The Obsessive Viewer on Facebook.
