If you went to see Clash of the Titans last weekend you probably caught a glimpse of the latest trailer for A Nightmare on Elm Street. It’s a remake of the 1984 film of the same name and is produced by Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes and directed by Samuel Bayer. Jackie Earle Haley takes over the lead role as the badly burned child killer Freddy Krueger and terrorizes a new group of unsuspecting teens. Check out the trailer..
Sticking to the premise of the original, this film follows Freddy Krueger as he’s 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. The remake will debut in theaters on April 30th and stars Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Katie Cassidy, and Thomas Dekker as a group of suburban teens being haunted and killed in their sleep.
The beginning of the trailer starts out like the previous one but don’t be fooled because plenty of new clips follow. One shot in particular features a girl falling from the ceiling onto her bed with a pool of blood behind her. It reminds me of the infamous scene in the original where Johnny Depp’s character Glen is swallowed by his bed and spit up into a volcano of blood. Perhaps this new scene is an homage? Watch it and let us know what you think.
