Well the trailer for the Nightmare on Elm Street remake has finally debuted, and it’s a mix of both excellence and typical horror trash, though I can’t but sure which side is going to win out in the end.
The pluses are Jackie Earle Haley as Kruger, although we only get to hear him talk for a grand total of six seconds during the trailer. The rest of the film looks like it has some thoroughly creepy dream sequences, but often mixed with typical hot teenage screams and panicked running, something I couldn’t be more tired of frankly.
Overall, I’m more impressed than I thought I’d be, and honestly I’m just looking forward to seeing a horror movie where the villain actually talks (unlike loveable mute giants Freddy and Michael). I think Haley is going to make the character surreal, it’s just up to the writers to make the rest of it work.
