A Nightmare on Elm Street is not a typical horror remake: Freddy Krueger is one of the most famous- and at one point in time, one of the most terrifying- screen villains in the world. The knifed glove, the striped shirt, that hat, and the third-degree burns are all iconic. Horror fans everywhere are looking closely to see if this will impress or disappoint. This version seems to be pretty faithful to the 1984 original: a dead serial killer haunts teenagers in their dreams and somehow manages to kill them off in real life. They attempt to stay awake for as long as possible, which naturally fails, until one brave girl attempts to confront him. The casting of Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) as Freddy is inspired and is sure to thrill. The young cast also includes Thomas Dekker (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles).
