To cleanse the palate, a reminder that our child-rape-supporting betters are really, truly, sincerely out of ideas. How soon, I wonder, before the inevitable remakes of Ghostbusters, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and Police Academy, directed by Judd Apatow and starring Seth Rogen as a reimagined “schlubbier” Mahoney character? Maybe get Shaq for the Hightower role? $30 million on opening weekend, guaranteed.

Am I reading too much into the trailer here or does the beginning make it seem as though Freddy, the child-murdering monster to end all monsters, has been falsely accused in this one? Given Hollywood’s face-first dive into the tank for Polanski, I guess that stands to reason.
