@buddyesd started this whole spooky movies thing and I have a question. Which version do you guys love more?
To me, Robert Englund is Freddy Krueger. The first movie really did scare me. I do prefer the more serious Freddy and not the comedian that appeared in the sequels.
The remake was released in 2010 and featured the talented Jackie Earle Haley as the man of your dreams. He did bring an interesting version of Freddy to the big screen. They took Wes Craven's original idea of him being a child molester.
