Here’s an brief excerpt:

Bayer feels that what let the earlier films down were the dream sequences. That’s what he’s promising will distinguish his film from those in the original series directed by, say, Wes Craven, Stephen Hopkins or Renny Harlin. “The dream sequences were the weaker elements of the older movies,” says Bayer. “They felt like rock videos with a lot of smoke and mirrors. The ideas were interesting, but the execution was limited by budget and probably the time period in which the movies were made. So that was one of the most appealing aspects of the movie: to elevate the dream sequences.”
