Wanna get a preview of Jackie Earle Haley in action as the new Freddie Krueger in the upcoming A Nightmare on Elm Street remake without buying the new Final Destination DVD it’s featured on? Well, here’s your chance.
In the clip on the jump, Haley talks about how much fun he had diving into the iconic role, and you can tell he means it. It also features glimpses of the extensive makeup process he underwent to become Freddie, and the technology that went into updating his menacing claw. And, as you’ll see in one already creepy bathtub scene, a truly menacing weapon it should be.
Hit the jump to view the A Nightmare on Elm Street preview, and look for the movie itself April 30.

Freddy Krueger (Jackie Earle Haley) returns in “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” a contemporary re-imagining of the horror classic.

As long as they stay awake, they can protect one another…but when they sleep, there is no escape.
