The parents of Elm Street have been keeping a terrible secret, and on April 30th that secret will be out, bursting into the nightmares of their children.  That’s right, Platinum Dunes’ A Nightmare on Elm Street is only two short months away.  I you’ve been following the development of this re-imagining/remake as close as we have, you may want to check out Steve’s set visit report. Last night, the films producers treated all us fans of the Son of a Hundred Maniacs by posting a new trailer for the flick on myspace.

While the first trailer, gave us brief glimpses of Jackie Earl Haley as the undead, child-murderer Freddy Krueger, this new trailer is all about showing us the goods without over doing it.  Not only we get a few tantalizing peeks at the new face of the dream demon, but we get several pieces of dialogue, including one line that is sure to live on as one of Freddy’s greatest, and one hell of a creepy laugh.  It’s clear that this isn’t a Freddy who jokes around, he’s a sick bastard who’s mad as hell and will gut you without a thought. From the footage we’ve seen, it’s safe to say the Haley has something special for audiences when the film debuts.  Until then…1,2, Freddy’s coming for you…

Hit the jump to check out the trailer, the official synopsis, and then say a prayer.


For those just tuning in, here’s the official synopsis:

Fred­dy Krueger re­turns in A Night­mare on Elm Street, a con­tem­po­rary re-imag­in­ing of the hor­ror clas­sic. A group of sub­ur­ban teenagers share one com­mon bond: they are all be­ing stalked by Fred­dy Krueger, a hor­ri­bly dis­fig­ured killer who hunts them in their dreams. As long as they stay awake, they can pro­tect one an­oth­er…but when they sleep, there is no es­cape

Don­ning Fred­dy’s trade­mark fe­do­ra, red-and-green striped sweater, and four-blad­ed glove is Acade­my Award® nom­i­nee Jack­ie Ear­le Ha­ley (“Lit­tle Chil­dren,” “Watch­men”). The film is be­ing di­rect­ed by award-win­ning mu­sic video and com­mer­cial di­rec­tor Samuel Bay­er (Nir­vana’s “Smells Like Teen Spir­it,” Green Day’s “Boule­vard of Bro­ken Dreams”), mark­ing his fea­ture film de­but.

The teens whose dreams are ter­ror­ized by Fred­dy Krueger are played by an en­sem­ble of young ac­tors, in­clud­ing Kyle Gall­ner (“The Haunt­ing in Con­necti­cut”), Katie Cas­sidy (“Tak­en,” TV’s “Su­per­nat­u­ral”), Rooney Mara (“Ur­ban Leg­end: Bloody Mary”), Thomas Dekker (“Ter­mi­na­tor: The Sarah Con­nor Chron­i­cles”), and Kel­lan Lutz (“Twi­light,” up­com­ing “The Twi­light Saga: New Moon”).

    This looks awesome. I was opposed to this remake when I first heard about it. But when I heard Sam Bayer was directing it interested me.
    I saw this trailer at night in the dark and it made me close my eyes. Just like the original. TO this day if the original comes on at night I change the channel.
    I hope the new one is great.
    “why are you screaming? I haven't even cut you yet”
    Awesome line!

    I am prolly one of the few peeps who are old enough to remember Jackie Earle Haley in the Bad News Bears movie that I loved when I was a young tyke. I enjoyed Haley's cameo performance in Shutter Island and his supporting role in Little Children and even the Watchman. Having said that, I am not sure this remake is gonna fly.Not sure about the voice since it reminds me of Christian Bale's batman voice.

    Eh.. might be a good Redbox rental.

    I agree w/ the voice porky, oh how I miss Robert Englund…

  • hallsart

    again who are you people, redbox? Bales voice? are you retarded or just plain ignorant, this looks better than the original, actually scary, no bad lines or jokes like a horror should be and englund come on Haley will do just as good if not better.

  • MCP

    Ya Redbox, would rather spend a $1 then $7.50 for something I have already seen many times and yes the original one is scary, have you not seen it, derka?
    The comedic aspect of Nightmare wasn't really present in the 1st movie, it was more so in the sequels, idiot.

    I think its ridiculous that u guys are crying about not having robert englund and calling this a redbox rental! JEH may be short and small but he is a great actor something robert englund is not! Freddy was never a huge guy he was a cerebral assassin! Yes Englund was a good Freddy but those movies are old and corny, even the original was a bit corny! I have wanted a new NOES for along time and I think JEH will deliver an awesome performance as Freddy! ” Why are u sreaming?” “I haven't even cut u yet!” I love it!

    I think Haley sounds exactly like he did as Rorschach in this trailer, and I'm not sure if that's exciting. I think it'll be a ho-hum remake of a so-so original movie, making it actually pretty bad, no matter how good of an actor Haley is.

    i have no idea if they will be able to pull this off, but honestly this is looking like a pretty slick remake. i definitely got freaked out in a few scenes in the trailer where the timing was just perfect. and that scene with the girl walking in the grocery store while she was half awake and half asleep looked pretty cool. i think i may wait on word of mouth, but if a few friends want to go see it opening weekend i wouldn't mind at all.
