A Nightmare on Elm Street – Trailer #2

The second trailer for A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET brings back lots of memories from the original, with several famous scenes recreated with glossier production valuges and 21st-century style visual effects. Jackie Earle Haley cuts a mean figure as Freddy Krueger, but the overall effect of the trailer is…how shall we put it? Slightly blase. There is little on view to excite interest in the new film for its own sake; rather, you reaction to the trailer is based on your familiarity with the ELM STREET franchise. If you’re predisposed to anticipate a remake, you’ll see enough to confirm your feelings, but if you’re sitting on the fencepost, you won’t find much to excite your enthusiasm.
