This year has been pretty quiet for horror films so far. The beginning kicked off with Shutter Island and Wolfman, but after that, things seemed to slow down. Now we’re getting ready for the big summer rush, and one film that could fall into the “blockbuster” and horror category is the remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street, which hits theaters in 2 weeks.
Lots of die hard fans of the original were pretty upset when they heard that the beloved classic was getting the typical Hollywood reboot, until they saw the trailer. Music Video director Samuel Bayer managed to capture the essence that made the original Wes Craven films truly horrifying.
That emotion is amplified even more when we got a glimpse at Jackie Earl Haley (Watchmen) as Freddy Krueger. Check out a brand new clip, entitled “All you have to do is dream”, after the jump.
Be sure to catch A Nightmare On Elm Street in theaters everywhere on April 30th.
