Robert Englund's Nightmare sequel idea's better than most of the ones we got

Robert Englund Nightmare on Elm Street

Ahead of his appearance at the Spooky Empire convention in Orlando, iconic genre star Robert Englund spoke with Florida Today about his favorite line ("Welcome to prime time, b*tch!"), the convention and his offscreen antics, but most importantly they discussed what he himself would want to have seen in a sequel to A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET:

If I was in control of my own "Nightmare on Elm Street" movie I have an idea I would have liked to see. I thought it would be great if the children of previous victims, or just kids who grew up hearing stories about Freddy Krueger, were each haunted by their own version of Freddy Krueger. Kids who grew up hearing stories about this Freddy Krueger guy and the awful things he did envisioned him in their own way, and that is the version that begins to haunt them. Some people may picture him as stout, another might envision him as tall & thin, another with a different hat, or a different sweater. He could have different gloves, or even a glove with small razor blades as referred to in the first movie. It would be neat to see very different interpretations of Freddy Krueger based on the child’s vision of who or what Freddy was to them. After all, each person’s subconscious would picture him in a totally different way.

That's actually a really great idea. It allows Freddy to explore his predilection shape-shifting without resorting to the overly silly antics of the later sequels. And it sounds way better than THE DREAM CHILD, at the very least. I doubt we'll see Englund behind the makeup again, and the remake seems to have buried the franchise for the time being, but perhaps when there's more juice in the NIGHTMARE franchise, we'll see them toying with this idea. Hell, he could write it! It's never too late to resurrect Freddy Krueger.

Call it New Nightmare 2

Sounds interesting and fresh. But then again it's just New Nightmare because that was a demon who took on the appearance of Freddy. What if we find out the demons who gave Freddy his powers morphed into their own dream demons, which look different in each kids dream because they are different demons.

The cool thing about this idea is that we could have Robert Englund back in the make-up but it wouldn't have to be him the entire time. We would get a kind of Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus idea. Every dream we see has a different actor playing Freddy based on what stories that person has heard about Freddy. It would be an interesting idea to make as either a reboot or a direct sequel to the original. The make-up on each actor could look different, his clothes could be a little different, it

The make-up on each actor could look different, his clothes could be a little different, it gives a lot of room for different takes on the character also. Not everyone has to play the character just like Robert. This would actually be a smart move.
