"A Nightmare on Elm Street" Trailer

Oh boy folks, here it is, our first look at Jackie Earl Haley as Freddy Krueger!

Debuting at 3am for some odd reason, this trailer is the talk of the internet this morning. While it doesn't give away the whole story, it does give us some good looks at the new man in action.

For myself, this looks positive! While I'm still not wild about the idea of a "Nightmare" remake, I can get onboard with a darker take on the story sans the wisecracks and one-liners! Haley appears to be spot on in the part and I like that they've fleshed out the origin a bit as well. The biggest change here is the new make up on burn victim Freddy, aiming to make him look more like a real burn victim. While we do not get a long shot at it, I think what we do see works!
