A Nightmare on Elm Street Remake Trailer Claws its Way Online!

Well get a load of him: Freddy Krueger is back in the very first trailer from the Michael Bay-produced remake of “A Nightmare on Elm Street”. The first thing you’ll notice is how many very cool music video-esque scenes there are. No surprise, then, that the film’s director is Samuel Bayer, a veteran of visually pleasing music videos. The second thing is, although I loved the idea of casting Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy (Rorschach!), seeing a kinda short, stumpy Freddy walking around killing teens is, er, a little strange. Of course, after Robert Englund everyone will look a little “off”, but I hadn’t expected for the Krueger character to look so different while still essentially looking so similar, if that makes any sense. Anyways, the first ever trailer for the “A Nightmare on Elm Street” remake (via Myspace) is below for your horrific viewing pleasure. And look, they even kept the bath scene. Nice.

A re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality.

Starring Jackie Earle Haley, Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Katie Cassidy, Thomas Dekker, Kellan Lutz, Clancy Brown, Connie Britton, Lia D. Mortensen, Charles E Tiedje, and directed by Samuel Bayer.

Freddy’s coming for you April 30, 2010.

    Hmmms. I need to see more. I really do, because other than that last scene I can’t see anything. Everything else looks up to par though.

      Oh and the voice is signaifcantly creepy. Reminds me of Nathan Verger from Hannibal. And someone that physically scarred would probably have trouble talking and sounding normal.

    basil you are a twit, the fact that this is directed by samuel bayer makes me want to vomit more than hearing jackie lisp as freddy and seeing his sucky makeup.jackie has a great raspy voice yet hearing him lisp in real life as well as freddy, this is like having elton john replace darth vaders voice in star wars.

    This is my favorite movie of all time,
    to see a remake in 2010… I can’t wait.

    I’m definitely seeing this the day that it opens.
