New Elm Street trailer online

More nightmare... more Freddy...


A new trailer for Platinum Dunes' A Nightmare on Elm Street has hit the net.

MySpace has the latest trailer, which gives a couple of fresh glimpses at Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger, the former child-murderer who stalks the dreams of Elm Street's teens.

This re-telling of the 80's horror classic seems to be going with a less humorous, more plain scary, Freddy.

While nobody was actually jumping for joy when this remake was announced, it does look like it could be one of the better recent horror-remake efforts, and if anyone can make us fear falling asleep again, it's Jackie Earle Haley.

Check out the latest trailer:

      Actually does look like it might be ok, must be better than the last few films from the original series when things just got stupid.

      the movie was getting slammed on AICN last week, but lets face it, AICN is fanboy central. Trailer looks very good, i still despise sam bayer and his gawd awful greenday music videos, so i doubt he's had much involvement in said trailer. as a critical it seems like the standard iconic scenes have all been updated, and one or two from the sequels too. end of the day the movie lives or dies on JEH and his performance, just like the 1st one, but unless the chick brings us a believable performance as nancy, we'll all struggle to to fear freddy. Englund was great as fred, but it was Heather Lankenkamp's Nancy that gave the franchise some depth, typifying the 'fight or flee' psychological question asked to the audience. without a strong heroine the film could eqaully fall flat on its bum.
