Originally, I was giving A
Nightmare On Elm Street
the side eye, but judging by this trailer (and directed by Michael Bay
) this might actually work. It looks like they added more of a suspense element and took out some of the raunchy camp that ruined Freddy Krueger in later versions.
The 1984 original was a pop culture classic with Robert Englund
as Freddy - this time there is a new Freddy by the name of Jackie Earle Haley
. He has some sharp gloves to fill!
A Nightmare On Elm Street
is in theaters April 30, 2010 (yeah, I know we all wished it came out this Halloween season). Check out the trailer below!
By the way, looks like they didn't add any people of color in the main cast
. Oh well, less Black folks to quickly kill off in the first five minutes!
