Trivia

Roberto Lombardi has stated in interviews that in order to prepare to play Freddy Krueger for the first time, he studied physical and psychological traits of sadists, masochists and child abductors and their methods. He also studied the original A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987) and New Nightmare (1994) for voice traits and mannerisms. See more »

Krueger (A Tale from Elm Street) (2011)

*** (out of 4)

Filmmaker Chris R. Notarile has several credits under his name but here recently he decided to make a trilogy of horror films in loving memory of three of the most famous killers from recent horror history. This film here is obviously an homage to Wes Craven's A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and is actually a pretty good little gem. The film starts off in 1972 as Freddy Krueger (Roberto Lombardi) has murdered yet another child and now is being interrogated by Lt. Thompson (Shawn Parr). Thompson wants Krueger to admit to the child killings but Freddy has his own way of handling things. At just 10-minutes there's really not enough time to stretch out everything in order to connect it to the events in the first movie but it comes pretty darn close. I can't see how any fan of the Craven film could be disappointed with this thing because it certainly has more imagination than the recent remake and the majority of the original film's sequels. What I enjoyed most were actually the performances, which isn't what you'd typical say about a low-budget film like this. I thought both men were quite good in their roles and especially the small touches in playing the roles that were done by Robert Englund and John Saxon in the original film. I really thought Lombardi nailed Freddy's little bits perfectly and especially that voice at the start when he's about to kill the girl. On a technical level the film is certainly well-made and the director deserves a lot of credit for making the film look as good as it does.
