It looks like the creators of the A Nightmare on Elm Street remake are trying to kick it old school. On MySpace,the first official photo of Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger has made its debut. It looks like an image from the original 1984 film, where Robert Englund portrayed the character. I’m surprised by this look, for some odd reason I thought it was going to be really campy. The first film was truly terrifying, while the sequels that followed became comical as time progressed. Maybe the remake will take us back to those scary roots. Too bad Jackie’s face is in shadow, but you can’t reveal everything at once!

What do you think?
