'IF YOU FALL ASLEEP YOU MAY WELL HAVE AN ENCOUNTER WITH 'FREDDIE KRUEGER'
on 2 September 2014
Re-makes, for many including myself do often have a problem especially as in this case, the original is a genuine 'Horror' classic.
Well, they have deliberately tried to make it somewhat different but have not captured the genius that 'Wes Craven' brought to the screen way back when, the original did i feel have a greater sense of tension and shock built in along with a 'tongue in cheek' delivery.
This film doesn't quite capture the same atmosphere, yet it does have one or two 'jump out of your seat' moments, along with some brief spells of tension.
Watch it ? ---yes you'll enjoy it more if you don't try to compare it with the original 'Robert Englund' version.
