This SHOULD be a teaser for a REAL remake worth watching!
25 August 2011 | by conhager9301See all my reviews

This short film, even though it's mainly just about Krueger's Police Interogation after a quick teaser opening, is LEAPS and BOUNDS better than that horrible steaming pile of crap remake that Platinum Dunes/New Line/Warner Bros. had the poor taste to release last year. I've watched this over 2 dozen times already. The framing, lighting, coloring & angles add a unique degree of tension to what would normally be a boring tit-for-tat questioning session. But it's the performances that make this so enjoyable and re-watchable. Shawn Parr delivers an unbelievably believable Donald Thompson that I personally believe would do John Saxon proud. And Roberto Lombardi SHINES as "The Springwood Slasher", Fred Krueger! If a remade Elm Street franchise SHOULD be built around a single actor taking over the Freddy reigns from Robert Englund, it NEEDS to be done with Roberto Lombardi! I had absolutely NO problem envisioning him as Freddy from the first time he's in frame! He's got "IT", simply put. The guys who made this should be given the keys to the franchise from Warner Bros. and BEGGED to make a prequel/reboot/remake/WHATEVER that's actually WORTH watching!
