Wes Cravens New Nightmare ePUB ☆ Wes Cravens eBook

Wes Cravens New Nightmare Freddy Krueger returns, scarier than ever, in an all new movie written and directed by Wes Craven, creator of the original A Nightmare on Elm Street Wes Craven thought he was through with Freddy Krueger, until the cast and crew of the original film find themselves stalked by the deadly supernatural force Movie to be released in time for Halloween This book will go down as a classic in novelization history The novelization itself is what you d expect The characters thoughts and a different way to experience the movie Just your average novelization right What makes this novelization a classic and such an inventive fun read is the fact that the writer David Bergantino writes himself into the story Alot of fun Wow did this book manage to suck not only the money from my wallet and time from my lifespan, but it damn near killed my will to live as well.I am an Elm Street fan from the early days and have always enjoyed collecting the books that either tied in with the movie such as Nightmares on Elm Street Freddy Krueger s Seven Sweetest Dreams , an anthology edited by Martin H Greenberg or novelizations of the film, but this book was, in my opinion, a bastardization of literature from page one.For Wow did this book manage to suck not only the money from my wallet and time from my lifespan, but it damn near killed my will to live as well.I am an Elm Street fan from the early days and have always enjoyed collecting the books that either tied in with the movie such as Nightmares on Elm Street Freddy Krueger s Seven Sweetest Dreams , an anthology edited by Martin H Greenberg or novelizations of the film, but this book was, in my opinion, a bastardization of literature from page one.For one thing, I paid to read the movie, not the movie guest starring David Berantino , David being the author who pretty much defecated into a book binding and then slapped this ISBN on it His tactic of writing himself into the storyline cheapened the movie for me on the whole and made me want to take a straight razor to the pages on which his journal entries resided so that I would have a halfway decent ROI on my purchase.But even the novelization itself was horrific I know the em dash erroneously known as the hyphen I like the em dash David, however, loves the em dash so much that I was hard pressed to find a single page in this book where David was not making hot, sweaty monkey love to his favorite punctuation mark at least once I hoped that my brain would be so numbed to the dash that I would not notice it after passing the midway point, but it was no goodthe damned thing just kept jumping out at me, screaming Here I am, Chris Yet another damned dramatic pause.finally, and I know that this may beof a fan nitpick than anything, but when I opened the book and saw the sample text on the front page and saw the hand blades glove technically not a glove since it was a biomechanical hand with blades in the flesh referred to as the Claw with a capitalized C, I could not help but facepalm Freddy s claw , I could handle the claw lowercased, I could handle But to give Claw a proper name with the capital C That, like the em dash, to me, was a hacks way of slapping the reader in the face and saying This is important Pay attention when the lowercase variant would have worked much better, in my opinion as it is a possessed objectnot a person.All in all, if you want to read the movie, you would be much better off just turning on the subtitles on the DVD The book was pretty good over all It seems I m the only one who didn t like the added journal entries the author put in there To me it was just taking things a little to far The point of the movie and book is to make it seem real, and though he was trying to do that with his journal entries, it just wasn t doing it for me He could of made the journal into it s own book I loved that as I was reading the book I was pretty much reciting the movie in my head as well A lot of

book that goes into so much detail about what s going on, and the same thing happens in the movie but with the book you can see it, and re read it and fully understand it I don t want to rewind a part of a movie over and over again just to understand a scene At times the writing seemed a bit childish, as in written by as a child s point of view, but those were very rare Over all I really enjoyed the book, and really want to watch the movie now
