Friday the 13th (2009)
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
I vote Halloween for Rob Zombie turning Michael Myers into Grizzly Adams.
I really enjoyed Friday the 13th and Elm Street though, especially Friday.
Gonna have to go with Nightmare. Rob Zombie isn't far behind though with his fuckin' abomination!
Friday the 13th, but I still enjoy it for what it was: a Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake.
Nightmare is easily the worst.
The Elm Street remake was a mess! What a piece of shit.
F13 had some decent additions to it that, while a monotonous entry and not on par with the top half of the series...still tried its best and accomplished somewhat.
Halloween's second half was disgustingly rushed and just overthetop. I liked the first half, though the white trash and dumb violence was a bit eye-rollish. It wasn't the worst of the series though.
Elm Street...was...god, I really can't put into words how atrocious and boring and poorly made it was. Like...it's not even well directed or shot.
I actually like the ANOES remake a lot. It made me jump in my seat more than once, the burn makeup on Freddy actually looked like burns, and the movie did not tiptoe around the fact that Freddy was a pedophile, a monster.
The Friday remake is at least fun.
The Halloween remake, however, I did not care for. It is very awkwardly structured, and Rob Zombie ignored everything that was thematically frightening in the original. Hence, it gets my vote.
Halloween for me. I could give a shit less about seeing Michael as a whining little white trash mofo. The 2nd half made up for it slightly...but the first chunk of that film is just abominable.
Nightmare - total garbage.
Nightmare by a massive margin, At least the other 2 are watchable.
Haven't seen NOEM remake yet, but I rather enjoyed Friday The 13th remake, since Jared Padalecki was in it. Halloween remake was pretty good, decent for a remake.
Nightmare easily. Couldn't even make it through it.
Jackie Earl Hailey was no Robert Englund
Rob Zombie's Halloween made me want to slit my throat
We wont even discuss Friday the 13th-AWFUL
I hadn't gotten around to seeing any of these, and hadn't bothered reading threads on 'em either, so I'm very surprised by all the hate for NoES. I knew there was some disappointment but I figured Rob Zombie had this one in the bag.
Halloween was so laughably awful. Friday the 13th was so generic and unlike all the other films in the franchise. Elm Street tried for some interesting alternatives while still staying true to the source. I kind of liked it.
I guess I have to vote for Halloween since it's easily the worst of the bunch, but it was so far gone it was kind of fascinating to watch. Friday, on the other hand, was so forgettable, implausible, unlikeable, and so out to lunch in trying to retain the feel of the previous films. In a way I think I'd almost prefer bland to bad.
Halloween was a car wreck of a movie in many ways but folks have a morbid fascination with wrecks. It's been a couple of years but it still gets talked about in one manor or another.
Elm Street had great material to work with to create something great but instead its miscast, poorly directed and quite boring.
It doesn't get spoken of for some reason but My Bloody Valentine 3D was better than Hallowen 2007 and Elm Street 2010.
Elm Street was easily the worst IMO.
I wasn't a fan of any of them really, but I'm surprised with all the hate for Elm Street. IMO, it was the lesser of the three evils. However, where is Texas Chainsaw Massacre in this conversation? God, I hated that remake.
Elm Street is probably the worst on an objective scale. But I vote for Halloween due to Zombie's complete inability to understand the appeal of the original.
As crappy as the Nightmare remake was, I still enjoyed it enough to want to add it to my collection for completist-sake. The Halloween remake is dreadful and I despise what Zombie did to a great franchise. I'm not a Zombie hater- I like House... & Devil's Rejects, but I really loathe his take on The Shape.
