New Art From A Nightmare On Elm Street

23 July 2009  |  Written by Emily Phillips  |  Source: IGN

Scratchy, scratchy. Get ready for a shuddering scrape of claws, because Freddy Krueger is back and this time Watchman Jackie Earle Haley is picking up the fiendish fedora for the brand new and up-to-date A Nightmare On Elm Street.

We have brand new shots of Freddy in all his glory, haunting the mean streets of Elm under the cover of darkness and leaving his mark on the alley-way walls.

Also online is a brand new poster - face mostly obscured, leaving room for a revolting reveal when A Nightmare On Elm Street creeps into cinemas on April 16 2010.

RE: WES CRAVEN'S PENSION POT......
The Todge....   As a horror fan and a huge Halloween fan, everything you said about the Zombie re-make SPOT ON!!!!   Also regarding this....Losthighway and I nailed it on the head on the Elm St thread, Freddy in new Nightmare looked so different, with minor tweaks, Wes Craven created a much darker and evil Kruger that was friggin brillient.  At the moment you would swear that its Robert in those clothes, but until we see the face, how can we judge!!!   I hav More

A complete waste of time....unless you want to help pay for Craven's new Mercedes or his new spread down in Palm springs.....or whatever else it is these execs spend their millions on.... money for old rope...... sp; He's not making any money from this.

L: losthighway L: DeathMag84 You are a hard person to impress i bet. By the way, Robert Englund wasn't that tall either. What else can i bust on you for, the artwork is cool, i guess you just can't please everybody. Not a hard person to please at all, been interested in this remake ever since it was announced, read the initial script that became available, enjoyed it as it appeared to combine elements of all the films and not just the original, in fact it had a lot of nods More

The original is cool but overrated and I don't see it as one of the untouchables and with Jackie Earle Haley as Kruger I'm all for this. Should be good and that says a lot seeing I tend to hate remakes and unncecessary sequels. More

RE: Ready Freddy
If i'm thinking of the same trailer your thinking of, it's a fan made teaser and it's FREAKING BRILLIANT!!!!   www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxPmOP1_HIYp; This is the YT link for those who haven't yet seen it. The guy who wrote, stared and diracted it should have been brought on to at least consult on the new film, he's got some really interesting ideas and visual directions to take Freddy and make him even more menacing.

Hmmm....
That Looks Pretty Cool. Jackie Earle Healy will make this a must see for me next year. even if the film sucks, He'll make this watchable. More

Jackie as Freddy?
Inspired choice. He played a peado and a sadistic killer. Now he's combining both roles. I can't frickin wait. More

RE: Ready Freddy
Looking forward to seeing what Haley does with Krueger. And I don't know why some people want to see him changed. Of courser they're gonna keep THAT jumper and THAT hat, and THOSE fucking claws! If they changed any of that it wouldn't be Freddy! I'm sure there'll be new stuff in the film. Just about the only horror remake I'm generally excited about. PS. Oh, and It, too. More

go into google videos and you can actually see the teaser trailer. More or less Freddy is just the same except he has flames More

With the casting of Freddy, I have hopes that this will actually be a genuine horror film, not just wall to violence. That said, I expect wall to violence and very little else. That they're trading off the iconic image of the main character is little hope for this new 'vision', as it's exactly the same as what has gone before. Another pointless remake making no effort to cover new ground and push the boundaries of what we already have? No. Of course not. Just another piece of crap that toppled o More

Getting seriously fed up with remakes, revamps etc Why can't they come up with a completely original film instead of recycling the same shite over and over again?! More

RE: Tbh, not impressed...
I have to say that this makes me a little more enthusiastic for the new film.  They haven't pissed about with the iconic look which is essential if yer gonna call the film Nightmare on Elm Street.  The differences will be in the make up design most likely, hence why there's no reveal of that yet.  But the hat, the sweater, the glove, all present and correct.   Truthfully what's puting me off this one at the mo is the sheer lack of respect for Wes Craven (they never both More

I was quite up for this remake but having seen the picture of a rather short statured Krueger (no offence to Earl Haley) and now this teaser poster which quite frankly is so similar to the Krueger we all know and love, I really have started to think - what is the point of this remake if he looks so much like the original Freddy. Remake it if you must but at least offer us something new! Apart from the glove being very slightly altered, I really don't get much excitement from this latest artwork More
