A Nightmare on Elm Street prequel?

Recommended Posts

Here's a question for you guys: Would you be interested in a prequel for A Nightmare on Elm Street? More specifically, would you be interested in a film that focused on the crimes of Fred Krueger?

Actually, that's the only reason I'd ever WANT to see an ANOES prequel--if they focused on the crimes he committed and why he did them.

The only way to do it, however, is to drop all of his trademarked humor, 'cause you just can't make light of his crimes or make him likeable by any means.

I agree 100%. He didn't develop his "humor" until part 3, anyway. No humor in this one. None at all.

Here's an interesting question: will they delve into the backstory developed in "Freddy's Dead", such as Freddy having a wife and daughter? If they develop a new backstory, will they address and explain the old one, or will they ignore it?

I hate when films ignore the other sequels (unless they really, really sucked... like American Psycho 2), so the wife and daughter would have to be mentioned.

Yeah, I'd be interested, but only because Freddy is my favorite horror guy of all time. I'm worried they'd somehow mess it up though and still give him his humor :(

You ever watch the first episode of that Freddy Krueger series? It was a bit like The Crypt Keeper. From what I remember, the first episode was set on Elm Street and focused on the parents planning to torch Freddy. But my memory is hazy.

Yeah, it was the very first one. I don't remember if it was actually good, all I can remember is a dream sequence with the main guy getting a present and Freddy's claw bursting out of his just kinda grabbing his face a bit. I think.
