New Nightmare On Elm Street Poster

Exclusive: New art for the horror remake

Just when you thought it was safe to grab forty winks, Freddie Krueger is back to haunt your dreams with his salami-faced fury in the Platinum Dunes' remake/reboot/whatnot of A Nightmare On Elm Street.

As evidenced by this shiny yet brutal new one-sheet, it's splashing down in cinemas soon with Jackie Earle Haley reprising Robert Englund's iconic role as the taloned terror. And judging by the trailer, there's all manner of night time nastiness in store for Clancy Brown, Rooney Mara, Kellan Lutz and their fellow Springwood-ers, as Krueger returns (again) to wreck revenge for his death.

Can Samuel Bayer's feature-length debut match the franchise-spawning success of West Craven's original? We'll find out when A Nightmare On Elm Street reaches cinemas on May 7.
