Hoping to revitalize yet another horror icon, Platinum Dunes’ looks like they’re on the right track for the resurrection of Freddy Krueger and the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. Our partners at Omelete have a landed three new images and the synopsis from the upcoming film and they make sure you know that Freddy has a claw-glove and it’s fucking terrifying. Imagine how bad the sound would be if he scrapped those down a chalkboard. Your eardrums wouldn’t survive.
Hit the jump to check out the new images. Hopefully we’ll be seeing a new trailer and/or new poster for the movie soon. A Nightmare on Elm Street hits theaters on April 30, 2010.
Here’s the synopsis:
Horror. Freddy Krueger (Jackie Earle Haley) 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.
A Nightmare on Elm Street stars Jackie Earle Haley as Freddie Krueger, Clancy Brown (Allan), Katie Cassidy (Kris), Rooney Mara (Nancy), Thomas Dekker (Jesse) and Kyle Gallner (Quentin).
and in case you missed the poster…
