A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) - Cineworld - 7/5/10

Thanks to Alanis Morissette I never really understood the concept of irony. Even when Ed Byrne tried to explain it I was just more confused.

However, now, thanks to this remake, sorry...thanks to this utterly pointless and vapid remake of the Wes Craven classic I have a complete understanding of the concept of irony. Let me explain; the premise of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" is that if you go to sleep you will be brutally murdered by Freddy Krueger the melted faced paedophile. However, while watching this very film I fell asleep on three separate occasions. Ironic.

There were so many awful things in this film that I cannot even begin to list them.

But, I know more after seeing it than I did before it, so it was educational...albeit inadvertently. It also answered a question that I haven't ever had a definitive answer for before; "What is the worst film you have ever seen?".

  1. Totally agreed, AWFUL! Freddy was just so creepy and pointless in this too, and what was the point of redoing scences from the old film then just scatteing them randomly throughout the film!?
