Fuller Responds to Elm Street Trailer Feedback


Answers fan questions about the Platinum Dunes remake

Producer Brad Fuller checked in via the Platinum Dunes blog on Bloody-Disgusting to answer a few fan questions and talk about the overwhelming response to the recently released Nightmare On Elm Street trailer.

Regarding Freddy Krueger’s look, Fuller writes, “we are continuing to refine Freddy’s look. Many people commented about the CGI on his face – and I don’t want to give everything away but I will say this – Freddy’s face is 98% practical make-up. Moreover, as you now know we went hardcore on what a burn victim really looks like.”

This writer personally likes the way Freddy’s one line of dialogue sounds in the trailer. (He has no lips! He would sound like that!) Fuller says, “Jackie spent so much time on the voice, researching what people who’ve has their vocal cords burned sound like. He is still working on it and I suspect that we will be refining it, until the last moment.”

You can read more comments from Fuller on the blog right here. He also promises some Friday The 13th Part 2 news shortly.

Jackie Earle Haley, Rooney Mara, Kyle Gallner, Thomas Dekker and Katie Cassidy star in this reboot of the Nightmare franchise. New Line opens the film on April 30.
