No Nightmare On Wes Craven's Street

Some little glitch caused the alarm at Wes Craven's home to trip on Thursday night. But police found nothing. No dead bodies. No disfigured serial killers with razor-sharp claw fingers. Nothing.

In 1972, Wes Craven's career started with the outrageous LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, which seemed like some stoner kids shooting a disgusting chainsaw/rape/murder crime horror story. By 1972 standards this film was outrageous. Heck, by 2010 standards, this film is still real outrageous. But over the years, his film-making abilities improved and his NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET films were audience favorites and more commercial horror fare.

Another production company not associated with Wes Craven will launch a remake of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM Street in April 2010. Actor Robert England is also now retired as Freddy Kruger from the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET series as well, and a new actor has replaced him for the new series. Without Wes Craven on-broad, it will interesting to see how good this film is or not. Can anyone be as good as Wes Craven?
