#10 – A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Grocery Store Nightmare
One of the recent Hollywood remakes, 2010’s A Nightmare on Elm Street, didn’t really live up to the hype. Even with it falling short of expectations, it did produce a few good scares.
Before Rooney Mara got her dragon tattoo, she was in this horror reboot. This scene we find Nancy (Mara) and Quentin (Kyle Gallner) trying to escape Freddy by not sleeping. A grocery story stop to get medication to stay awake is a little too late. Nancy’s back-and-forth between the store aisle and Freddy’s boiler room is pretty awesome.
I also thoroughly enjoyed Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Kruger. Robert Englund will always be my favorite, but Haley’s take as a creepier Freddy was chilling at times.
