A New NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET Trailer To Haunt Your Dreams

     February 25, 2010


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.
