First look at the new Freddy Krueger


And it's pitch black.

I do get that it's a teaser - but isn't this a little too much? I want to know how the new Freddy looks already. I'm secretly hoping it doesn't step too far from the original - I can see the outfit is the same, the only difference I can tell from this is that new Freddy seems to have a smaller build.

I don't know why I'm so interested in this, because I feel pretty reticent about this remake. Nightmare has always been my favorite horror franchise, I own all the movies in DVD and I can find something to like even in the ridiculous mid-installments of the series, when Freddy is basically a one-liner spewing clown, so it's only natural that I'm afraid "they"'ll ruin the whole thing with a remake. On the other hand, I think it will be interesting to see how Jackie Earle Haley plays Freddy - no one will ever beat Englund, but after seeing Haley play Rorschach, I know this guy can pull off a very creepy Freddy and I'm kind of anxious to see it. Plus, it will be fun to see a Nightmare movie in the theater, because the only one I got to see on the big screen was Freddy vs. Jason, and I don't really count that as part of the series.

We'll see how this develops.

Producer Michael Bay? WTF?!?!?!

Cheira-me um bocadinho a Dragon Ball... o nome deste gajo assusta-me!

Ska - é verdade, o xor Michael Bay vai arranjando maneira de se infiltrar por todos os lados. Ele tem uma companhia de produção que se tem dedicado a fazer a maior parte desses remakes de terror que por aí andam - e para ser sincera, em termos de remakes de terror, são os melhores que têm aparecido (o que, admitidamente, não é dizer muito).
Vamos lá a ver o que é que sai daqui... nem cheguei a pôr o trailer aqui pelo blog porque também não me cheirou muito bem (aquele momento à Super-homem do Freddy a tirar o casaco fez-me estremecer), mas pronto, já sei que vou acabar por ver e vou...

Quanto ao Dragon Ball, chegaste a ver? E o The Spirit? É que eu vi os dois, e ambos são muita maus... mas o DB ainda acabei, o Spirit foi superior a mim, não aguentei até ao fim.
