A Nightmare on Elm Street Trailer Starring Jackie Earle Haley 2009-09-28 10:30:42

Movie Preview: A Nightmare on Elm Street

Enough of you are into slasher flicks that I think you'll appreciate this trailer for the latest installment of A Nightmare on Elm Street. What's different about this one, set to release in 2010? Freddy Krueger is played by the genuinely creepy and genuinely good actor Jackie Earle Haley.

Billed as a re-imagining of the horror classic and produced by Michael Bay, the movie's trailer opens with a sad, evocative image of a younger Freddy being chased into an accident, precipitating his fate as a cold-blooded killer. The fact that the trailer can make you feel empathy for one of pop culture's greatest villains is a feat unto itself and makes me think this movie will be about more than just gory, creative ways to kill someone.

To see the trailer, which also stars Kellan Lutz, Connie Britton, and Melrose Place's Katie Cassidy, just

I just now saw the original film (I'm 27) and it's almost too dated and campy to be scary. Still a classic, though. Maybe the new one will be scarier. And I don't know who Connie Britton plays in it, but I'm sure she will be great!

Has Hollywood lost all creativity? originality? If I could get a message through to anyone in the right position it would be this: Please stop remaking old horror films and thinking they're exciting. The generation that grew up on these is in their 20-something (and 30-something) years now and we have more taste than this. Pixar has delivered more decent movies lately...revamp.

It looks terrible! The sweater reveal scene was cheesy and the accent they gave to Jackie is odd and not in a good way. The trailer was boring not scary in the least. Michael Bay strikes again.

This one looks really good. Hopefully it's better than the original which I've always found to be laughably bad but that's just me.
