Its NOES 1 and 2 combined, which is funny cause Craven hated the plot for Freddys Revenge.
NOES 2: Freddy Krueger (child murderer) comes to people in their nightmares but finds a human avatar (Jesse) to possess and do his bidding by killing off the children whos parents murdered him, out of revenge.
SOUL TO TAKE: Riverton Ripper (murderer) comes to people in their nightmares, but finds a human avatar (Bug) to posses and do his bidding by killing off the children born on the night he was murdered, out of revenge.
Also, you have several scenes (hand out of wall in bed being one) which are either homage to NOES, or lack of an original idea, and just rehashed.

I just watched the trailer..yeah..that's like a reworking of it, with shittier slipknot sounding muc.
It's not a complete rip off, as the dude isn't all cooked up or has cheesy jokes..but..def. the same idea 98%.
If it wasn't directed by wes craven and wasn't in 3D and wasn't made so close to the remake of NOES..It might be good. But these mo' fo's are completely running out of ideas.

I am all for homages but to just blatantly rip off other films gets on my goat! Its like they have run out of ideas so they just keep remaking the same films under different names!
Sorry I'm still pissed at the Fright Night remake
