I can almost understand the rush to take all the old/new 80’s slashers and killers and remake them. After all, unless they were made in this century, the studios seem convinced that the tween-to-twentysomething target audience has no way to relate to it. But Mr. Englund is integral to A Nightmare on Elm Street… even through the makeup, it’s still Robert in there hamming it up in all his devilish ways (being a child-molesting dream killer notwithstanding). It’s really going to suck if Englund winds up with a mere cameo.

By the way, make your plans now. There’s only 1,787 days left until the end of the Mayan calendar.
