  1. The only remake-ish movie I loved over the original was It 2017, which Tim Curry was fantastic but seriously nothing aged well from the mini series in all honesty and Bill Skarsgard’s take on Pennywise The Dancing Clown was idealistic for a cosmic being pretending to be a clown, I am looking forward to Pet Semetary and the possible Flash Gordon remake

  2. I wish they would make a live-action reboot for Howl’s Moving Castle. Even though the animated film is good, I want something that is faithful to the story in the novel.

  3. Fun fact: *Halloween* has been rebooted three times now, first with *Halloween H20,* then Rob Zombie’s thankfully short-lived remake series, and now basically a retcon of all eight films after the original (not technically counting *3).* Yeesh…

    And I thought *Friday the 13th* was a mess. Honestly, I’m burned out on *Halloween* at this point and suspect Curtis took this job partially for the check. I don’t particularly care that Danielle Harris wasn’t asked to return to play “Laurie Jr.” either.

    *Halloween* has progressively diluted into a bad joke. John Carpenter made an icon out of a simplistic but memorable idea that’s been milked to Hell & back. Just have the mercy to let Michael Myers DIE already with some memory of dignity.

    No matter the director, cast, or script, it’ll never recapture 1978’s lightning in a bottle. Times have changed and so have audiences. Sometimes, the best way to respect something we love is by learning when to leave well enough ALONE.

  5. Someone please, for the love of god, make a new movie so this generation has a chance to actually build a cinematic legacy of its own.

  6. *I’d personally LOVE a sequel to 2010’s Elm Street (if at least Jackie Haley, Rooney Mara, and Kyle Gallner return) that builds on its potential with elements of Dream Warriors. Here’s my idea, apologies for the length but feedback’s welcome:*

    Picking up where the remake left off, Nancy returns home with her mother only for Freddy to appear and kill her before her eyes. Nancy flees Freddy through her transforming nightmarish house, confronting him before waking up in hysterics.

    It’s revealed that Nancy went to bed, was possessed into killing her mom, and pulled Freddy’s glove from her dream during their struggle (He planned it)! The cops blame her for the recent murders when the blades match past victims’ wounds!

    Despite futile protests that she’s not crazy and attempts to convince others of the truth falling on deaf ears, Nancy is defended by her attorney under plea of insanity and institutionalized for psychiatric treatment, including for insomnia.

    Poor Nancy is forced into a depressing clinical equivalent of prison, most patients fearing, accusing, avoiding or outright bullying her for her reputation. Any step out of line or refusal of medication results in her being punished (Ex- solitary).

    Worse, one of the orderlies grows inappropriately attached to her, abusing authority if she “misbehaves”. Meanwhile, fellow survivor & Nancy’s love interest Quentin is convicted as an accomplice in the murders after his hospitalization.

    Still recovering from his injuries and inevitably succumbing to exhaustion, he’s tragically helpless when Freddy possesses him to commit suicide in his cell. Nancy nearly despairs, a medicated shell of her former self, knowing she’s next.

    As the mental hospital slowly feels like a slaughterhouse, patients inexplicably picked off like lambs, they gradually realize the culprit can’t be Nancy. She finds true terror in her dreams, entering Freddy’s inner realm beneath the boiler room.

    She discovers that, in his final moments before burning to death, Freddy sold his soul in exchange for immortality sustained by others’. Fear became his source of power but his sustenance is the life force of all those who fall by his hand.

    The souls of every victim, including Quentin + the 2010 film’s teens, are still trapped & suffering in Krueger’s labyrinthine subconscious, unable to pass on even with their physical bodies & brains dead, their agonized screams echoing.

    So long as Freddy has even one soul to feed on, he can never permanently be destroyed. Nancy also learns that, due to her history with Krueger as his “favorite”, she can not only pull things out of her dreams but manipulate them.

    By connecting to targets so strongly/frequently, Freddy has unintentionally shared some power! A few surviving patients befriend Nancy and they protect each other under security’s nose while training their own abilities through lucid dreaming.

    *Thus, Nancy must now lead her dream warriors into Krueger’s mind, free the trapped souls (spiritual mercy-killing), destroy Freddy forever, and escape back to reality! But to succeed, will Nancy have to make the ultimate sacrifice?*

    🕵️ *#WelcomeToMyNightmare* 🔥
