SDCC: A Nightmare on Elm Street Panel!


Warner Bros. just debuted the trailer for the upcoming re-imagining of A Nightmare on Elm Street, including a full look at Jackie Earle Haley in the Freddy Krueger makeup.

The trailer starts with Freddy (still alive) being chased down a dark street by the mob that winds up killing him. He’s shouting that he’s innocent, but the mob corners him and burns him alive. As the flames come around him, he tears off his jacket, revealing the iconic sweater.

We hear the “One, two, Freddy’s coming for you” song being sung by children and flashes of kids all around a graveyard. One little girl has the claws slashed across her dress.

There’s a girl in her room, reaching for something on a shelf and suddenly’s Freddy’s head is there, staring at her from behind. A number of kids are shown, obviously under the effect of Freddy’s dream powers. One seems to be having a seizure on a rooftop and another is trying to burn herself with a car cigarette lighter.

There’s a basement, filled with pipes and Freddy moving through the darkness, getting closer and closer to the camera between flashes of victims before the logo comes up.

A Nightmare on Elm Street is set to hit theaters April 30, 2010.
