Netflix ‘Choose or Die’ Trailer Released

Netflix just played a trailer for choose or die. This bar harks back to the well-worn of ’80s survival horror for a flavor video game that takes on the genre. Iola Evans plays a curious programmer who stumbles upon a cursed computer game called Curs>r. As you would expect, some bad things unfold when you turn it on and the city starts to collapse due to the malicious code. Asa Butterfield arrives to help complete dangerous challenges. Oddly enough, Robert Englund is credited with the movie, even though he has a voice-over in the trailer. Toby Meekins is related to the direct and Simon Allen penned the spooky tale. Fans of this genre will be pleased to see a horror staple associated with a project that is clearly indebted to his past work with it. A Nightmare on Elm Street. You can check out the trailer for yourself below.

Comicbook.com had the opportunity to speak with Englund about his career. He is very pleased that Freddy Krueger has become an icon of horror.

‘Freddy’s amalgamation of [filmmaker] Wes Craven experiences,” Englund previously told ComicBook.com. I think there was a bully at his school named Fred Krueger. And I think when Wes chose the bogeyman name, he liked the German side. Frederick Krueger, very tectonic. And I think part of that is that Fred — that there’s always been a little bit of — a darker side to the Grimm’s fairy tale in Freddy Krueger’s tale, “The Nightmare of Elm Street.”

He added, “The other part is that there was a period of time when Johnny Carson was doing Freddy Krueger jokes and Freddy Krueger was on the cover of MA Magazine And Freddy Krueger was in the Sunday Comedy, in some of the most outlandish strips. It was the subject of nearly hundreds of rap lyrics in the 1990s and early 2000s. He became… he no longer owns it, I no longer own it, and New Line Cinema doesn’t own it anymore. It’s just part of the American accent. I think this is where it gets confusing for some people, especially the younger generation, to see an old DVD lying around or watch it at a Halloween marathon. And they think it might have been based on something as real as Ted Bundy, a true serial killer story.”

Netflix describes the film here, “Following the release of the ’80s lost survival horror game, a young programmer unleashes a hidden curse that tears apart reality, forcing her to make terrifying decisions and face deadly consequences.”
