The fact Freddy is always making jokes about your pain and suffering, actually makes him that much SCARIER. The fact he's loving every moment of this, can basically GUARANTEE that he will give no mercy of any kind.

I feel the remake missed to realize that.

But I don't HATE the remake. It's pretty good actually.

And I don't HATE Earl Haley's performance.
It's INSANELY hard to be the next Robert England, but he tried. He really did. And I respect him in the end.

It's easier to be Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers, they never speak..
