Horror films come a dime a dozen these days, and finding one that actually displays quality acting and a powerful story line is a challenge all in itself. Unnerving situations that are extremely violent make up a good horror film. Year after year, we watch as writers, directors and producers try to come up with a new horror film that really keeps the audience on the edge of their seat. Some times they succeed, most of the time they fail.
Unfortunately, over the years, horror films have lost something along the way. While some of them are still entertaining to some degree, it is typically more of the audience laughing at the poor acting skills and/or story lines that any 2nd grader could deliver.
The reason why movies such as “Nightmare On Elm Street,” “Friday the 13th” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” were so intriguing in those times is that film makers really pushed things to the extreme. While murders could often be predicted, the horrific violence is what kept the audience wanting more. They can only make a sequel last so long before the entire story line is too far fetched to even entertain, but when you get real horror films that test the imagination of viewers, it can go a long way.
“Nightmare On Elm Street” is a horror favorite. First being released in 1984, this horror film haunted the dreams of everyone who watched it. The producers of Nightmare On Elm Street are ready to release the 9th installment of the film in hopes that audiences will get just of a thrill from the new one as they did with the original. It is hard to top a good horror film, but the cast and crew of the 2010 Nightmare On Elm Street hope to do just that opening weekend, which is Friday April 30th, 2010.
Despite some already bad reviews, only the box office sales can determine if this film is a dud or if it puts horror films back on the charts. Entertainment betting odds provided by online sportsbooks are asking online bettors to wager on how well the film will do during its first weekend release from Friday April 30th, through Sunday May 2nd, 2010.
