A Nightmare on Elm Street ★★★★★

This... is God!
-Freddy Krueger

The recent news that the US rights to Nightmare on Elm Street have reverted back to Wes Craven’s Estate is bitter sweet considering that Craven basically never owned the rights to his own creation while he was alive. His last experience with the franchise was deciding he’d never watch the remake when the studio let him know they weren’t interested in having any input from him when making it.

It would have been interesting to see what Craven would have done with the franchise (if anything) considering when the studio went back to him in the 90s he made the most original Elm Street film since creating Freddy Krueger with New Nightmare. We still miss you Wes.
