Nightmare Poster

The Michael Bay produced Platinum Dunes horror re-imagining of A Nightmare on Elm Street now has its very own teaser trailer courtesy of MySpace, and it’s something to see for fans of the series!

This new Nightmare on Elm Street is going in what sounds like the best possible direction: it uses the Freddy Krueger who slaughters you in your dreams that we all know and love, but it gives his character more of a story. As you’ll see in the trailer, they’re aiming to portray him as a regular and innocent dude who’s small and fairly insignificant looking and is wrongly murdered by a mob of disgruntled parents. You all know the rest.

The trailer has a lot of good stuff and it looks like it could be a lot of fun. There are some questionable additions that makes it look like it was cut using footage from previous movies including Freddy vs. Jason (creepy-ass children singing; claw scraping on wall), but it all still looks decent. The only real cause for concern is if it will really be unique; or if like Friday the 13th, will it be just like the other movies. When they went and got Oscar-nominated Jackie Earle Haley to play Krueger and shared details, it sounded like a whole new world they were creating. In the trailer, after the cool beginning, you will see many things that would lead one to believe it’s your average slasher movie, so we have ourselves a wait and see situation. One thing we do know is: Freddy will not look exactly the same, and that sick and goofy sense of humor appears to be gone completely.

Platinum Dunes most recently did a remake of Friday the 13th which wasn’t loved quite as much as hoped by people who weren’t already dedicated followers of the killer icon. Before that, they also released new takes on Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror, and The Hitcher. They’re style is to take the concept and characters of classic horror, but give them the shots and visuals that today’s film making technology offers. This doesn’t always translate to a great movie, but they always seem to look really damn good, that’s for true.

A Nightmare on Elm Street will be released in theaters on April 30, 2010.
