Here it is folks... Freddy's face!



I'll give them their dues, they did promise he'd look more like a burns victim and sure enough, he does!

Yeah definately gonna be an R/18 certificate... even if the leaked script was fake, I'm sure some of the scenes made it in there and it wouldn't get a '15', that's for sure!

As for the ComicCon preview... seriously bad news i'm afraid. WB marketing team have put a blanket ban on it and there won't be any more marketing for the film now until closer to the release date. Brad Fuller at Platinum Dunes asked if he could release it to YouTube and they refused point blank saying they want to build up anticipation slowly rather than climax almost a year before it's released. Apparently, the teaser poster and the pic above is all we're getting for at least another 4-5months. Shit ain't it!!

I loved the first Nightmare on Elm Street film with its synthesized music. Nostalgic.

I really like the new look Freddy. They didn't go for an outright scare. It's subtle and quite sad-looking, too. I heard the film is gonna be much darker too - not as humourousw/Freudian/Jungian themes.

Tobe fair the original film was dark as eck for its time,  its just the watered down sequels that made you root for Freddy and at the same time laugh at the kill scenes. 

The original had so many dark classic scenes...the girlfriend being attacked on the celing...the bodybag being dragged in the school....

The re-make really as to be something special.....

Also thanks TECH...you a star

I was first introduced to Freddy through this poster for New Nightmare when I went to see Batman Forever:



I was so freaked out I asked my sisters to take me outside !

New Nightmare:

15 at the cinema... 18 on VHS... And now back to 15 again on DVD...

No wonder the BBFC had trouble with it, the prolonged terrorisation of young Miko's character is one of the nastier aspects of the film!

There was a huge outcry over New Nightmare and the mind torture of Heather's young boy...considering it came soon after a terrible real life crime!

Its only a film...that boy was ACTING......shezzzz!!!!

New Nightmare is class and it really needs something special for this "new dark" Freddy to be as good as that evil bastard who came out into the real world

I love the fact they're going back to darkness for the remake. I don't want any comedy whatsoever. I just fear they may put some in to appease American teenagers who may expect it.

The sequels became a mockery with their comedy. I mean, what other films do you root for a child molester!?

Right this the Trailer that a website in America has claimed will hit the screens soon:

It starts with an alive Freddy being chased by a crowd and protesting his innocence, bu the mob corners him and sets him on fire,  as the flames surrond him, he takes over his jacket to reveal his famous jumper.

We hear the Freddy song being sang by children while flashes of kids all in a graveyard, one girl has the claws mark slashed on her dress.

It cuts to a girl in her bedroom reaching for something on her shelve, when Freddys head appears, we then cut to scenes of kids all most probably under the dream, one trying to set herself a lit with a cigerette lighter, an other having what seems like a seizure on a roof top.

Finally we cut to the basement where we see all pipes and flashes of victims as Freddy comes closer to the camera, then the logo appears....

They say this is 100% geniune and we should be able to see it soon....

Aparently in the remake Freddy is a friendly school janitor who was framed for the murders by the kids.

It better had be. Can't they just make him an evil bastard? These people do exist. And not all of them were abused as a child or something. I don't want to have any sympathy for him whatsoever. The fact he's cold blooded and we can't relate to him is what makes him so fucking scary!

Damn right. Any sympathy takes away all the work thats been done with the whole series. Freddy is evil, plain and simple

This was one of the earlier concepts for the film where the teenagers were supposed to investigate Freddy's background, higihlighting the injustice and the reason why he is now taking his revenge. The news is this is untrue though and Freddy is definately a child molester who had a 'good' relationship with the children at the school... Oh and his glove in the remake is apparently a homemade gardening device which he obviously uses for other activities after he dies!

I'm waiting for the re-releases of the movies next year, hopefully they'll have good covers and features.
So far I've only seen up to chapter 4 and Im really looking forward to watching the last 3 as well.
