If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Hollywood has released A Nightmare on Elm Street 2010, I though this would be appropriate timing.
My remake of choice is the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I thought it had good acting, especially for a slasher film. It gets points for making Jennifer Biels look hotter than ever. I really liked the suspense in the film and that it didn't get too gory. Most remakes of slasher films tend to go overboard on this factor and it turn into a "Hey! Look how many barrels of blood we bought for this film" Now, I'm a gore fan, but it certainly isn't required for me. Another interesting fact is that it doesn't end in a cliffhanger or a "wait until the next film" type of ending. Maybe we'll get a sequel, maybe not. We did, however get a prequel- that's another story.
A lot of people are saying that this isn't as good as the original, I disagree.
Oh and, to those who don't like it: Stop blaming Michael Bay! He was the fucking producer, not the director!
