Check out the photos below…

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.

It looks like the director wants to stay as close to the vision of the original film as possible. There are certain scenes that have been recreated including the infamous ceiling stabbing of Tina, and of course the boiler room where Krueger took all his victims. In the following photos see if anything looks eerily familiar to you.

A Nightmare on Elm Street hits theaters on April 30, 2010 and co-stars Rooney Mara, Thomas Dekker, Katie Cassidy, Kyle Gallner, and Clancy Brown.
