The teaser for the Michael Bay-produced remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, due in April 2010, debuted today and it looks creep-tastic! Watchmen‘s Jackie Earle Haley is taking over Freddy Kruger claw duties from Robert Englund while the batch of teen victims includes my new favorite actress, Melrose Place‘s Katie Cassidy (also seen briefly: Friday Night Lights‘ Connie Britton)! Fans of the original flick will notice certain iconic images like Freddy’s glove appearing out of the bathtub and a female (who I think is Cassidy) levitating out of her bed mid-dream. At the very end, we get a brief glimpse of Haley’s Kruger facial make-up and it appears to be a more toned-down, realistic version than the original. All in all, it looks solid and scary.
What do you think, PopWatchers? Will you go see the new Nightmare? Or are you disappointed?
