Is it done by the same people who did the Friday the 13th remake? If so then this is a must see, the remake was the funniest thing I have seen in a while.

Seriously, why do they keep remaking these slasher 80s flicks? They were barely scary then, they're just punchlines now.

The only good thing I have noticed so far is Mr. Haley as Mr. Krueger. I thought that was a very good fit.Otherwise, with the tiny glimpse of the mask, I was incredibly disappointed. There is just something that tells me that this movie will not come anywhere close to recapturing whatever the original had.

Pretty much, but how many more are left for them to do? Seems like they've done this all just about.

The new "mask" looks more like what it's supposed to be: disfigurement and scarring from horrible burns. Also, the plot seems incredibly stupid. If it's a bunch of adults that appear to be from a small town or something that caused his disfigurement, why is he going after suburban teenagers? Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. I'll never understand the fascination with retarded horror movies.

Well, wasn't it, in the original, that he was going after the kids as revenge against the parents? Either that or he couldn't stop with his pedo-ways.

From what i remember... He was a child killer that got off on a technicality... The parents tracked him down and burned him alive... He vowed revenge and that he would haunt all their child's dreams long after he's dead...

Interesting. I've never seen the original (nor do I really care to, frankly). Thanks for the insight.
