A Nightmare on Elm Street is set to hit theaters on April 30th, and the marketing behind the film is in full force. We’ve recently discovered a few Freddy Krueger toys, which I’m assuming are geared towards an older crowd because these would terrify any normal kid. They feature several versions of Jackie Earle Haley’s character pre and post burn and there’s even an image that shows him on fire! Check out the creepy photos below…
The latest Freddy photos popped up on the Figures forum, and they are down right weird. We all know that Krueger was a child killer but there’s one toy in particular that screams pedophilia. There’s a set up of him and a little boy who I’m assuming comes attached with a particular Freddy set, which is gross.
The original film was directed by horror legend Wes Craven and was released on November 16, 1984. The remake will drop on April 30th, and will star Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Katie Cassidy, and Thomas Dekker as a group of suburban teens being haunted and killed in their sleep.
Similar to the original story, in this film Krueger is hunted down by the parents of a small town and burned alive for his heinous crimes against children. As his final act of revenge he decides to continue his killing spree but inside the subconscious of kids where no one can save them.
Do you think the Nightmare on Elm Street action figures are creepy? Would you buy them?
