Wes Craven told MovieHole.net that he will not be checking out the new A Nightmare on Elm Street remake.
Craven says, "That’d be a tough one to re-see... If you move on from the films you’ve made - which I have tried always to move on - then it’s like, 'That’s in the past. It’s had his life.'
"If they make a better film, maybe it will eclipse the original. I don’t know. If they don’t, then the original will look even better."
"I guess now they’re (studio bosses) moving towards remakes rather than sequels, because, at some point, you can’t justify another sequel - but you can remake the original, because the audiences have gone through two or three generations."
