A Nightmare on Elm Street Remake Trailer

Now, let's be honest here. MB Blog is a longtime Jason Voorhees lover/supporter. I love everything that guy does, from Camp Crystal Lake to Outer Space. So with a heavy heart, I have to admit...

The remake for A Nightmare on Elm Street looks pretty damn good.

In fact, I'll even go as far as to say it's BETTER looking than the remake for Friday the 13th.


Ouch. That hurt.

And what's even worse? It still looks awesome, despite the fact that Robert Englund isn't returning as our beloved Freddy Kreuger. Instead, it's Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley) from Watchmen.

And it STILL looks better.

WTF Jason? What's going on with you?!??!

Now, here's why I think it's going to be superior to the Friday the 13th "Remake":

1. Freddy, despite being played by a COMPLETELY different guy, is still pretty true to form, and I'll even go as far as to say he seems scarier. Englund's Freddy had this dry sense of humor and cracked these one liners, while new Freddy seems a little more grim. Again, I'm just seeing this from the trailer.

Way creepier.

2. The memorable scenes from the original seem to still be there... The hand coming out of the bathtub while the girl is snoozing in it:

even the look of the house:

...all look similar. They're classic things about the original and they are still there and done pretty tastefully from what I can see.

3. The beginning scene with the townspeople chasing Freddy and lighting up his hiding spot is pretty friggin awesome. Nice touch.

Now, here are some other things that I've been thinking about.

Kyle Gallner. I mean, is there a movie that this kid isn't in? He was in The Haunting in Connecticut...he's in Jennifer's Body...and he's in this.

This guy is everywhere!
Not like it's a bad thing...he kinda looks familiar....

And speaking of Twilight...Kellan Lutz, who stars in The Twilight Saga as Emmett Cullen, is also in the Nightmare on Elm Street Remake...just sayin'. I mean, that adds to the appeal for me!

So anyway...Get pumped for 04/30/2010...because (new) Freddy's coming for you!
