Thank the good Lord for Redbox. If I had paid to watch this in a movie theater when it was released I would have been tempted to start a class action law suit. This seems to exist because some movie execs decided Jackie Earl Haley would make a good Freddy Krueger. It’s like remaking Tootsie because Adam Sandler looks good in a skirt. This remake adds NOTHING to the existing mythology of the crispy child molester. NOTHING. Some of it is shot for shot re-creation as if it were a film school assignment to reproduce what the student has already seen. Things that worked so well in the original using suspense and practical effects are reworked with CGI that while technically impressive is emotionally shallow and disingenuous. Nothing happens in this movie that you don’t see coming from a mile away. Worth a buck to watch as a Redbox rental? Just barely but I imagine if you weren’t at least a dollar’s worth of curious about it you wouldn’t still be reading this.
