A Nightmare on Elm Street debuts in theaters this Friday and Warner Bros has just released a new restricted clip from the film. It features Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger and Katie Cassidy as one of the many teenagers he’s out to get. From the looks of it Freddy is back in business, the business of killing. Take a look…
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.
There are several things present in this scene that take us back to the good old days when A Nightmare on Elm Street was actually scary. We get to see the return of the 3 little girls jumping rope, while reciting Krueger’s unofficial theme song (1,2, Freddy’s coming for you…), and the clawed killer himself standing next to one of his favorite accessories, a chalkboard. We all know what happens when Freddy’s in a room with a chalkboard (cover your ears)!
