The revamped “A Nightmare on Elm Street 2010” hits theaters on Friday (April 30). We were planning a review of our own after seeing it early, but after seeing that Kid Cudi penned his own, we thought it’d be more interesting to just feature his.
After attending the film’s premiere at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. on Tuesday (April 27), the rapper took to his official website to publish a positive review.
Cudi loved it too, and so did we. BallerStatus.com’s owner, Jay, gave it a 4.0 outta 5.0.
Here’s Cudi’s review in its entirety, via KidCudi.com:
go see it go see it go see it
WHY: its a perfect date movie and the rebirth of Freddy Krueger with a modern day twist. the new Krueger played by Jackie Earle Haley did his thing and made freddy his own. him and Robert Englund are 2 diff freddys to me but both good at being creepy, psychotic and scary as f***
WILL I GO SEE IT AGAIN ON FRIDAY? hell yea, this time on shrooms haha (joking … kind of)
in the beginning your goin to be VERYYYY skeptical. if ur into horror like me, you dont wanna see a icon get rebooted the wrong way. but its cool for a remake, wayy better than a lot of remakes. NOT BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL, only because NOTHING f***s with the original. the new Krueger played by Jackie Earle Haley did his thing and made Freddy his own. him and Robert Englund are 2 diff freddys to me, but both good at being creepy, psychotic and scary as fuck.
IN CONCLUSION: if u wanna have a lil fun at the movies with a date or your homies this friday, go check it out. its not a waste of time. its mandatory actually. i mean cmon its Freddy Krueger!!!!
