Today the trailer for Michael Bay’s reboot of the Nightmare on Elm Street is making the rounds on the intarweb.
I don’t care much for how this gives away the origin of Freddy right in the trailer, so if you are avoiding spoilers – you might want to skip this.
So yeah, it gives away a bit much in the opening of the trailer, but I read enough to expect us to actually see Kreuger’s introduction into the supernatural instead of the verbal tradition of the previous films. But all the visuals and dreamscapes, as cool as they were, was not what what I was waiting for.
I wanted to see a glimpse of Jackie Earle Haley in full on Freddy mode, and we get that glimpse, and get to hear his voice.
And I like it!
