An all new reimagining of A Nightmare on Elm Street is due for release on April 30th in the US and May 7th in the UK.  A Nightmare on Elm Street was a massive horror franchise that was first released in 1984.  The evil serial killer Freddy Krueger is murdered by a lynch mob and comes back to haunt the children of the people who killed him.  He appears in their dreams and murders them wearing a trademark glove with knives embedded in the fingers.  The original starred Johnny Depp and Robert Englund and was directed by Wes Craven.

The remake is directed by Samuel Bayer who has directed primarily music videos and commercials before and stars Kellan Lutz (The Twilight Saga), Katie Cassidy (Melrose Place) and Thomas Dekker (Sarah Conner Chronicles).  Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) is playing the role of Freddie Krueger.

It is doubtful that it is going to be an award winning production but hopefully it will be as much of a scream fest and as much fun as the original.

They’ve released four creepy stills from the film.

  1. I haven't seen any of the films, but the book wasn't too bad. I think several of the movies were combined into one book.

  2. I never even knew about the books, John! Much to my husband's dismay, I am going through a bit of a horror phase. Poor man.
