A Nightmare on Elm Street :- Watch A Nightmare on Elm Street on Youtube on Fire, The spectre of a dead child rapist haunts the children of the parents who murdered him, stalking and killing them in their dreams. I must be the small percent of people who actually enjoyed this movie a lot. I think the biggest problem a lot of people had with the new movie was it wasn’t the old franchise.People get certain expectations in their heads when Hollywood comes out with a new movie based on a old franchise and when it doesn’t meet those expectations, you better watch out, because no matter what you do, people won’t agree with it. As soon as they announced the original actor for Kruger wasn’t going to taking up his old role, people should have known this movie was going to take a hit. People were just not going to forgive the fact that Robert Englund was not going to be starring in the film. The original Nightmare on Elm Street movies never took themselves very seriously, they were campy, B-Horror quality films that people learned to love and enjoy. While Kruger was still a murdering horror icon, he was more of a joker, a prankster and a wise cracker then some sort of super villain. I think people also disliked the fact how much more villainous they actually made Kruger. A lot of people disliked the fact they made him a child molester. The reality of it is, even from the old franchise they were planning on making Kruger a child molester, but when a major court case involving an actual child molester began to take trial they didn’t want people thinking their movie had anything to do with the actual person on trial and changed Kruger from a child molester to simply a murderer. The reality of it is, as on it’s own, this is a good movie. It’s unfortunate that there are such die hard fans that they can’t even keep an open mind, I thought it was a fantastic movie and I am glad it was produced.
