ComingSoon.net has your first look at Jackie Earle Haley as the horror genre’s favorite big screen dream slayer, charred child killer Freddy Krueger.
Freddy’s funky fedora, tattered sweater, and signature glove of knives will be slashing their way to the box office next spring in a blockbuster remake of the 1984 classic A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Be sure to tell us about it, because there’s no way I’ll see this. I was only four when my older brother and his friends decided it would be a good idea to let me join them as they watched A Nightmare on Elm Street IV on VHS. (Actually, I cried until they relented and let me stay — but that’s not the point.) Twenty-one years later, I’m still petrified of Freddy.
A Nightmare on Elm Street opens in theaters April 16, 2010.
