Making the Grades

Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.


In this remake of the 1984 horror film, the four-bladed claw of serial killer Freddy Krueger (Jackie Earle Haley,) kills his victims in their dreams. The only hope of survival for the likes of Nancy and Quinton (Rooney Mara and Kyle Gallner) is to make sure they don’t fall asleep.

This movie rating fails to mention that Freddie Krueger is a PEDOPHILE in this Remake.  Hollywood has just EMPOWERED EVERY PEDOPHILE IN OUR NATION.  If any youth in the viewing audience is being abused, after seeing this movie they will have a much harder time telling someone that they are being abused and stopping the abuse, because of the fear factor that this pedophile instills.  Everything a pedophile threatens comes True in this film.  I am an AMAC (Adult Abused As a Child).  My predator is currently incarcerated and registered as a sex offender.  I am also a pediatric nurse.  This movie was alarming to me.  I saw the first movie in 1984.  I went with friends last night.  I thought I knew what I was getting into by viewing this movie.  The new twist of Having the villain be a Pedophile that reaches out from death to effectively kill the children that reported him in their youth and Kill their parent, is going to be a Very Powerful Tool for pedophiles across America if this is ever release for home distribution.  Sadly Pirated copies will no doubt be used by a pedophile somewhere to torment and silence his (or even her) victims.  I am so sad that “the horse is out of the barn” so to speak, and this movie has been released.
