There's only a week left until Freddy Krueger (now played by Jackie Earle Haley) attacks theaters in New Line Cinema's A Nightmare On Elm Street remake. In the meantime, you can check out a new clip, poster, and several new high-res images from the horror flick.
First, have at look at this scene from the film -- one in which Freddy shares a, um, "tender" moment with Nancy (Rooney Mara), a young teenage girl that he more-than-a-little-bit-creepily refers to as his "number one."
You can check it out below:
Despite my previous complaint about Haley's makeup job, I think it actually looks okay when Freddy's lurking around in the shadows -- less so when we get a good look at his face.
Also -- and this is my last comment, I promise -- I have mixed feelings about the blue tint cinematography that has appeared in much of the footage I've seen from the new Nightmare On Elm Street. While it works to enhance the eerie atmosphere, I'm concerned that it will be overused throughout the course of the film.
Moving on... ;-)
Next, you should check out the Elm Street's official site for a look at the new UK motion poster. While the image itself is kind of straightforward and unoriginal, it works quite well in action -- especially for those of you who detest the "claws on a chalkboad" scratching sound.
Finally, thanks to New Line Cinema, there are now several new high-resolution Nightmare On Elm Street images available online. I've assembled ten of the most interesting images into a photo gallery, which you can check out below.
Before you do, though, I have one question -- is it just me or does the A Nightmare On Elm Street director Samuel Bayer (1st picture in the gallery) kind of remind anyone else of a younger Tim Burton? Maybe it's just the hair, I'm not sure...
