A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET Comic Con 2009 Panel
The Comic Con 2009 panel for A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET presented the very first trailer of the revival from the iconic 1980s horror film of the same name.
Among the people on the panel were producers Andrew Form and Bradley Fuller, director Samuel Bayer, and Jackie Earle Haley.
The shooting wrapped about 2 weeks ago, but they had put together a special trailer to show us. Unfortunately, I’m not a horror fan and I haven’t seen the original movie, so this was a little lost on me. But I did enjoy the beginning of the trailer where we saw Jackie Earle Haley, who plays the new Freddy Krueger, get burned alive, which leads him to become people’s worst nightmare.
Apparently, this new version of the film will feel different than the first one. The producers and director described it as scarier and darker than the first one.
It was also mentioned that the scars on Freddy’s face will be grounded into more reality than before. Jackie Earle Haley commented that if he had walked on the street with his face makeup on and normal clothes, people would have believe his face really had been burned. We will also learn more about the backstory of Freddy.
Unfortunately, there will be no cameo from Robert Englund in the movie, but it was mentioned that he was supportive of the movie.
