MySpace Trailer Park

As of this post, it's the feature trailer at MySpace Trailer Park, but if they move it you'll have to do some quick digging to find it.

Also starring Katie Cassidy, Thomas Dekker, Clancy Brown, Kyle Gallner, Rooney Mara and Connie Britton.

Well, that looked pretty much the same as all the other Nightmare on Elm Street movies.

My thoughts exactly.

Rorschach vs. Ruby? Interesting. :D

Well, I'm curious to see Haley as Freddy, but that's about the most of it. Looks like a pretty standard remake, which is to say it doesn't look like much of anything at all.

Disappointing. Other than the slightly more realistic make-up on Freddy and the disturbing scenes of him being trapped in the warehouse where he'll be burned to death, this showed nothing new. Maybe JEH's voice. But as has been said, it could have been any of the Nightmare movies.

Though at least it seemed to be one of the earlier ones before Freddy just became a wise-cracker.

Anyone else feel like they were watching a parody? Michael bay's Nightmare on Elm Street? Like Jim Cameron's Last Temptation of Christ?

Ugh, did they really need to bring back the red and green sweater and fedora? I was hoping for whole new look for Freddy. Something a lot less campy and played out.

I think it looks very slick. Of course it's being produced by Michael Bay so a stylistically polished movie is not to be unexpected. I recall several moments from the original film. I do hope this remake adds something new. I have read they're attempting to make Freddy less of a wise cracking one-liner hokey type of villain and actually someone who is unhinged and, y'know, scary, so I'm looking forward to this if just for that. Plus Freddy is a much more cerebral horror villain than Michael Myers or Jason Voorhees, more akin to Hannibal Lecter, which is why I always liked him. He has much more potential than the others to be equally horrifying and interesting.

So, basically, how he was in the original ANOES movie.

^Pretty much. I'm interested to see what they do new with it, like I said. It's Jackie Earl Haley so it should be fun.

As other have stated, it looks very standard. I also predict that it'll get rotten reviews.

That being said, even though I am not a big horror fan, I'll probably check it out because part of the movie was filmed at the high school I went to.

I'll give it a miss.

The series never did much for me. It was far too cheesy for my tastes. In fact, last Halloween, I watched the original for the first time since it came out and my roomie and I just howled with laughter.

MEH. I was looking forward to this...now that I've seen the trailer I'll pass and maybe catch it on DVD. I'm a fan of the originals up to V but ugh.
